Review of the 2002 Audi A8

  • While the A8 and A8 L aren't top performers in the super-luxury sedan segment, their well-appointed cabins and all-wheel drive make them feasible alternatives to offerings from BMW, Lexus and Mercedes.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    quattro all-wheel-drive system, advanced and powerful engine, numerous options allow customization.

  • Cons

    Soft suspension even in sport mode, small navigation system screen, bland exterior styling.

  • What's New for 2002

    Audi will introduce the second generation of its flagship sedan next year, so 2002 sees only minor changes. Among them is a standard in-dash six-disc CD changer, OnStar telematics system as an option, an improved stability control system and updated navigation system software.

A8 my dust

Vehicle: 2002 Audi A8 L quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)

fun. fun. fun. esp for such a large luxury sedan. we wanted a high performance car as well as something large enough to travel with small children. I cannot say enough about the performance for such a large vehicle. this car purrs like a cat at 2500-2800 rpm (95 mph) which is about the perfect cruising speed. Too bad we dont have an autobahn. fuel economy is good 17.5 in town 25.5 hwy w/ lead foot. minimal upkeep, great service and the finish/ trim is immaculate, even after 2 yrs

The best car I've ever owned. Not as quiet and as functionally/logically laid-out as the Lexus (wife's). Fun to drive, excellent fuel economy and one seldom sees another one.




Awesome car

Wanted a full-sized luxury sedan but RWD BMW 7-series too risky for midwest winters. Went with A8L because of 4WD. Very happy with car. Definitely more comfortable seats than MB S430. Original tires were Dunlop 8000 performance tires but ride was too rough so dealer switched them to Toyo and ride much better. Will get much better milage with 18" wheels but less ride comfort. I'm getting 22mpg city and 29mpg highway! There's nothing this car can't do. It's awesome!

Absolutely the best luxury car on teh market. Those that know, own an A8. I have owned a 740i and this car excels in every way the BMW could not.

The car is beautiful on the inside, but, the outside design is somewhat bland. The car handles wonderfully and is a lot of fun to drive, especially in sport mode.

Vehicle: 2002 Audi A8 L quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)

Car is fun to drive and handles the road very well. There have been problems w/ the navigational system as well as a warning light that never would go off even after being fixed once. The audio/radio system is not up to standard w/ Lexus or BMW. For a luxury car it should be better. Lastly , the clock is in front of the driver and cannot be seen be any other rider.
