Simply Outstanding Auto
By Fanning on
2003 Audi A8 L quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)
This is my fourth Audi, my second A8, this time an A8L with most of the options. Best automobile I have ever owned and operated. Quiet, sure-footed, solid vehicle that pampers the occupants in sumptuous surroundings. Contrary to some reviews, I find this car to be quite economical regarding gas consumption as I am getting between 34 and 37 mpg cruising at 60 mph (100 kmh). City mileage around 20 mpg. At 44000 km (27000 mi) changed tires for Michelin Pilot A/S. Any complaints about rough ride and road noise evaporated with the new rubber.
Engine and tranny, sound system, fit and finish and cabin comfort and layout are all top of the line. Quattro AWD leaves all others in your dust in summer and stuck in the snow in winter. Outstanding automobile. Will stay with Audi.
High end Michelin tires should be the standard on this machine. Anything else just isn't worthy of the car.
