1999 Audi A8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD
Drives like a dream. Good handling. You have to step on the gas when taking off from a stop but once going, it's ready to fly. Very comfortable especially on long trips. Expensive to repair. Lots of features to go wrong. It has 3 or 4 ball joints per side. I replaced 3 one side. The arm rest just broke and I haven't priced that out but I heard it could cost up to $500. I'll look for a used one. Recommended timing belt change between 80K and 100K cost was around $2K. I bought it with 18,000 miles and now have 102,000. It looks and feels better than most new cars. The blue book is only around $7K. I think it would be a steal at that price.
It is the most comfortable and best built car I have owned. Not one rattle. The sound system and quattro drive are great.
Cheaper replacement part cost. Automatic head lights. Sunglass holder in front of moon roof. Automatic garage door opener like my A6 had.
