Audi A6 quatro Allroad
Since emigrating in December 2002 we sold all our cars and decided we would only require one car, but this car would have to be reliable and be practical for long distance traveling as we drive from Marbella to Winterthur (near Zurich) and back, several times a year, apart from the odd visit back to the UK.
Furthermore, we visit ski resorts and sometimes our ski hotel is high up requiring a car that can cope with roads covered in quite deep snow. Some roads in Spain, once you leave the tourist areas, are best driven with an off road capability.
We have family already in both of our new locations and plenty of visits by our children, grandchild and friends so we need a four seat car with at least four doors. Lastly having moved to two different homes we still find certain items would be better in the other location so we need plenty of luggage space too.
After a lot of thought we chose the Audi A6 quatro Allroad and were lucky to find one for sale with every possible extra already fitted that was only a few months old with very low mileage.
After so many years driving Jensen cars from the 1960's I confess it has been a steep learning curve, finding out all that this car has and what it can do!
Since this purchase, we have no regrets and really love this car. It has so many features - too many to list here. But the most amazing to me are: -
of long distance travel in this car is a delight, after driving to and
from Spain - we find that we still arrive feeling fine!
