2004 Audi A8 L quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


This my first Audi, I have previously driven other high end sedans and sport cars. The beautiful interior, especially the dash was the best selling point. The car has great power, handling and braking. I have had a number of serious technical problems. The first was being locked out of the car, with only 500 miles, a non operatin heated steering wheel, and most importantly a less than complete NAV system. The NAV system occasionally takes me to the right address in the wrong town. It also fails to give complete numerical addresses. Audi does not seem to have a fix for this problem.

Best Features

The car's handling and comfortable seats make a long ride very comfortable. The heated seats are great. The MMI system has some great features, but is mot completely intuitive.

Worst Features

Improve the software on the Nav system. Provide a rear video camera, and have rear headrests that drop down, so that its easier to change lanes. Incorporate satelite radio, a DVD sound system, tape player and move the CD player to the middle of the dash.
