Expensive Unreliability
By Lynne LeGallais on

Vehicle

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

Review

We expected Audi quality and attn to customer service when we purchased this vehicle. Our experience has been terrible. Mechanical car repairs since 80,000KM have exceeded $7,500. Examples of necessary repairs are, replacing starter cost $992.16, dysfunctional remote which has had batteries replaced 5 times. Four upper control link bushings cost $1130.53, breather valve atop manifold cost $240.81. Decarbonization of air intake system cost $216.57. And the car stopped functioning on HWY 81 last night requiring towing, stranding us in Wilkes Barre, Penn and now requiring replacement of the mass air flow sensor cost unknown. It apparently was also misfiring on some cylinders.

Favorite Features

Room in back seat for passengers.

Suggested Improvements

Expensive repairs for this supposed quality of car should not be necessary. Our letter to Audi did not even receive the courtesy of a reply!!!!!
