2005 Audi A8 Sedan L quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This 05 A8L is my 5th Audi. Last was an 02 allroad. I cannot believe how incredible this car is. Stunning ride quality, acceleration, comfort and stability. Here in Colorado there is NO better choice in a luxury vehicle. Awesome traction in snow and total command in every imaginable driving situation. I am most impressed with how quiet the car is. And I do really love the drivers seat. Incredible amount of adjustments enable you to dial in a perfect fit and comfort level. But the rear seat guests have the best environment- better seats than most luxury autos provide for the driver. Stunning exterior styling and interior finish. This is a great driver's car.


Favorite Features

Seating. Exterior Styling. Interior volume and finish Rear seating envirnoment. Ride quality. Comfort. Sense of luxury. Control and traction. Acceleration and top-end speed. Superb handling at any speed. The superb treatment from the dealership - like a 5 star hotel guest. Really.


Suggested Improvements

OK. More power would be great. But I can wait for the upcoming S8. Seemless iPod integration would create a PERFECT vehicle.

Review

The car has the style and luxury, of any other car. The exterior makes it look cheaper than it really is. The interior is very nice much like a mercedes-benz or better.


Favorite Features

The stylish interior makes it a comfortable driver's car.


Suggested Improvements

The exterior needs a touch of improvements.

Review

Ok everyone. I'm not an employee of Audi, or anything like that. I just traded in my 2003 Mercedes-Benz E320 for the Audi A8L, and let me tell you that I will NEVER buy a Mercedes again. Its probably true that Audis don't have the same "chick factor" as the Mercedes, but now that I'm married I guess that doesn't matter anyway. This car is simply amazing. I enjoy driving to work now, and can honestly say that this car meets and exceeds all my demands.


Favorite Features

keyless start and blue tooth technology


Suggested Improvements

I think the bluetooth technology needs some help, but that's not a problem with the car, just all the different versions of blue tooth out there.

Review

I ppgraded to my Audi A8 from an A6 (which I loved) The A8 gives me the extra room that I need without giving up a sporty ride. Audi sneaks under the radar so others do not see you as driving a snobby BMW or Mercedes-Benz.


Favorite Features

MMI lets you manage your luxury items with ease.


Suggested Improvements

none
