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


Review

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


Best Features

sporty feel for size, responsive transmission, excellent sound system, love quattro system. Some of my buddies build for nascar and they tell me this car is awesome for its size in terms of handling and performance


Worst Features

sporty ride could be toned down a little in favor of luxury feel. did not like the dunlop tires that came on the vehicle

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Seating and rear seat leg space


Worst Features

Cruise control too funque--poor design. Auto down/up windows too touchy. Why won't the doors swing open easily?? It's like trying to open something spring-loaded to remain shut!!??

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


Review

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!


Best Features

Definitely the heated steering wheel and seats. They're so cozy you can't wait to get in the car in the winter. The center dash display is also very informative, useful and convenient.


Worst Features

The only things I hope they've added to the '04 are Auto-on headlights, rain-sensing wipers. They should also change their "one-touch" open/close window switches. They can be "touchy" to operate.

Review

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.


Best Features

AWD, Styling, And Rigidity.


Worst Features

Dealer Support is very poor.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

The sport mode makes it worth the money. When a car that big and comfortable, can be so quick, it is a win-win situation.


Worst Features

The exterior could be improvised, something closer to the Mercedes S-Type would be awesome.
