2014 Audi A6 2.0T Premium Plus Review
My experience owning an A6
Although some may say that this car's styling is a bit old and possibly even outdated, I disagree. I think that the honeycomb grille gives the car a no-nonsense look. It gives the car a feeling of distinct Germanness, if you will. It tells the consumers that the car isn't to be trifled with. The lines on the doors extending to the front hood also give consumers a professional feeling from the car. The taillights, with bits of hexagonal and recatgular edges to them, add to the overall exterior aesthetic.
The interior of the A6 looks as if it's been in a James Bond film. It's very futuristic and modern. The dash is all full of buttons that do all kinds of exciting things, everything from steering wheel heating to sectret compartments for Mr. Bond to put his weapons. Then, after you think, "There can't possibly be anything else more exciting than this.", you discover that there's a whole back seat with more exciting buttons and gadgets. There's dual-zone A/C and seat heating for the rear passengers. Furthermore, there's genuine wood inlays and genuine chrome surrounding the whole interior, so passengers get a feeling of luxury and style.
I bought the car in 2016, and paid just under 30k. At the time, the car had just under 30k miles on the odometer, so if you do the math, that rounds out to about $1,000 per 1,000 miles on the odometer. So, not a bad deal for a mid-size German saloon.
Over the past few years, ownership of the car has been great. The car has only had a water pump replaced, and motor mounts replaced, but that's usual once the car hits about 50k miles. I've gone on plenty of road trips with her, and she's always stuck with it till the end. And, the sat nav actually gives me directions, unlike the dreary Volvo sat nav which just tells you where you've been, but not how to actually get to where you need to go. So, overall, the ownership experience has been truly special, and will continue to be. :)
Do I recommend buying one?
Yes! If you're in the market for one and can afford one, I strongly recommend purchasing an A6.
