Stay away from Audi A8s

1997 Audi A8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD
We own an A8 after a long series of Audi's. This car is crap. Electronics are a total failure, Audi knows the transmissions are defective but won't do anything, both windshields cracked, coolant and fuel lines had to be replaced, the heater and AC are terrible; this is the 3rd week of AC repairs at large cost, the sun roof leaks, and the overall quality is terrible... not as good as a cheap Fiat. It is not surprising Audi can't be reached by email. Many dealers refuse to sell 1997 A8's. Keep your eyes open, you'll see lots of newer ones broken down. A8s are crap!
Lower parts and repair costs; get a new electronics vendor; Audi should send apologies to all 97 owners; if that's Audi's best, they should be ashamed.
