I haven't had my '96 A6q Avant long, but we've been very happy with it.  It's got 100k miles and seems to be very solid.  It's slow, but I knew that.  It's really just slow from 0mph.  The main contributor being a quick upshift to second gear at about 3 mph.  On the highway, it's similar to other Audis in that it has nice long legs capable of munching many miles and making passes with ease.

No complaints so far.  Oh, and in the snow, many good times can be had by simply shifting to first and steering with the old right boot.
