Give me a brake (yes brake)
By Gerald Krassner on
2003 Audi A8 L quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)
To be in the big league price category
you need a reliable well riding
automobile. My A8L had brakes replaced
4 times in 50,000 miles. Navigation had
to be replaced. Tire pressuer monitor
never worked properly. I disconnected
it. The timing chain had to be replaced
at 51,000 miles. Noise level high, I
used to think a window was open. Still
do. Forget about the suspension, My
sons Civic takes the bumps better as
well as the curves.
Great engine and tranny. More than
enough power. Sound system wonderful.
Navigation pretty good . Air condition
and heat excellent. Love the rear sun
shade. Plenty of room front and rear.
Suspension system needs major overhaul.
What about those brakes? How about a
good safe cup holder?
