Summary:

Very nice car, I'm glad I bought it

Faults:

One tire was out of round and replaced by the dealer.

Hit a pothole which bent 2 rims and ruined another tire, requiring replacement. Pirelli replaced the tire without charge.

Gas mileage is poor in mixed suburban driving, 14-15 mpg. Highway is better, about 21 mpg.

General Comments:

I have the 17inch wheel option, low profile tires. These are particularly susceptible to damage from potholes, since there is not much tire between the wheel and the ground. However the wide tires do contribute to the handling, so I would buy them again.

Aside from the gas mileage I have been very happy with the A6 Avant (wagon). It's smooth, comfortable, peppy, and handles like a true European sports sedan. There is lots of room with the rear seats down, and with the seats up, rear seat passengers find the ride very comfortable. The car looks good, draws favorable comments, even in a country where station wagons are considered dowdy and old fashioned.

The fact that Audi pays for all standard maintenance for 4 years is a major benefit, it is wonderful to bring the car in for service and pay nothing when I pick it up.

Summary:

Terrific driving machine

Faults:

In the 9 months (and 15,000+ miles) I've owned the car the only thing that has gone wrong is one summer day the front passenger seat warmer came on by itself. I turned the car off then on and the problem corrected itself and has not reoccurred.

General Comments:

This is, by far, the best car I've ever owned with respect to reliability, performance and comfort. It is also the most expensive car I've ever owned.

The ride is smooth at every speed, the acceleration is seamless with plenty of pickup.

Within one week of owning the car I was in Lake Placid, NY towards the end of a snowy winter season. While descending a hill and the road veering to the right the Audi held on. The SUV in front of me rolled over twice. I was very happy to have Quattro
