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

Review

This is my second A8 and I really love this car, but this might be the last one. These cars are very costly to maintain. Things like suspension parts breaking on a car with 32000 miles shouldn't happen, especially on a car driven very carefully on paved roads. Also electric gremlins that shouldn't happen, like parts breaking when I had it in for a software upgrade for other problems(telephone module broke). But, it looks and handles like a million dollars when it's not in the shop!

Favorite Features

Looks, fit and finish, handling. very good visibility forward. Suspension is very good, and it can be raised or lowered as needed. Very nice navigation system, easy to use.

Suggested Improvements

A little noisy in the cabin. Touchy gas pedal. Brake rotors and pads wear too fast and leaves a lot of dust. Many electrical gremlins. Parts and service are expensive.
