Default My new A6 is super and so is the dealership who sold it to me

I received my first driverís license in 1947. The first car I owned was a previously owned 1941 Plymouth. It cost me $100. Since then I have purchased forty new automobiles. Some were modestly priced while others were expensive. My last purchase was a 2014 Audi A6 3.0 V6 quattro Premium Plus sedan on December 23, 2013.

Buying so many cars has required that I conduct many transactions with dealers. Consequently, I have strong opinions about the process and those with whom I negotiated. Some dealers used high-pressure tactics. Others were less than knowledgably about their vehicles. A few were disrespectful and patronizing. Conversely, other dealers showed patience, respect, courtesy and intelligent responses to questions.

Audi-Peoria in Peoria, AZ is the dealership from whom I purchased my A6. The staff there at all time during my inspection and financial negotiations was professional, knowledgeable, courteous and exemplary in conduct. The pricing for my A6 with the options I wanted was the lowest of any Audi dealership I contacted in Arizona, California or Nevada.

My 2014 Audi A6 is a terrific car. The visual lines are beautiful. Its interior is sedate yet richly appointed. This A6 is crammed with technology to assist my safety and driving pleasure. The car is comfortable at all speeds powered by a supercharged V6 engine that is smooth and fast.

Although I have had it for only a few weeks, I think it just might be the best car I have ever owned - regardless of price.

Impressive review and I think most here will share your sentiment but I have to be more impressed that you must be pushing 80 or better and rocking a new A6. I remotely hope I will be able to christen a new Audi when I get there.

Rock on Pops, that's BOSS

Very true and not one use of the word "stealership" was used. (I truly hate that word).

Great post. Thanks for sharing.

40 new cars is very impressive! (I'm only at 16 new cars.)

Enjoy your new 2014 A6.

salvadorik, you are correct. While organizing photos that I just took of my A6, I keyed the wrong file from the folder and inadvertently inserted it.

I apologize for this error. It was not intentional.

I am thrilled with my new A6 and think it is simply beautiful inside and outside.

Nice car! I had the option to go to Peoria but being in East Mesa was ridiculously far for me (think Orange County to Hollywood time and distance). I settled at Audi North Scottsdale and they were as equally nice and courteous. I have the TDI, but I will agree in saying the A6 is one sharp looking car.

I thank each of you who have responded. It is difficult to keep a smile off of my face when I look at or drive my A6.

I am grateful to have such a wonderful car to enjoy during my final days behind the wheel.

SlammedR8, sorry about that.

I reset the photos on photobucket:

Hope they work for you now.

Yes! Works now..great color!

How come you didn't get the S Line package? I feel like it does a lot for the A6. Gives it a much needed sportier look while keeping the class and luxury!

Love the color combo, my first choice too! I've got two teen girls in braces, trying to save for college etc so it will be awhile before I'm behind the wheel of a C7. Thanks for sharing the pics!
