2015 Audi A8 3.0T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 8A)


Review

The A8L appears to be a great car. But Audi is not telling its customers something very important. If this car is in a wreck, it can take up to 3 months to repair. I was in a rear end collision over 6 weeks ago. The repair work has not even started. The reason is that Audi limits collision repairs to one shop in any particular city. I live in a city with 5 million people. There is only one shop that can repair the vehicle and the shop has only one technician who is authorized to do the work. As there are five other cars waiting to be repaired ahead of me, it will be at least another month before I may see the car back. I filed a complaint with Audi, and they told me the reason for this insane policy is that the vehicle is aluminium and requires special training to repair. With all due respect to Audi, there are many other cars made of aluminium and many other repair shops that can perform the repair. So to make sure that these shops cannot do the repair, Audi will not sell them the parts. Audi refused to provide me with an alternative equivalent vehicle and refused to buy the car back. It is insane to purchase a car which costs between $90 and $100k and for Audi to create a situation where it is impossible get it repaired in a reasonable period of time. I will be commencing legal proceedings against Audi in the near future. I will report back on the results.

2015 Audi A8 L TDI quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 8A)


Review

This is a great automobile. The Lane control is excellent and the adaptive cruise works great in stop and go traffic. The technology is almost to the point where one could read a book while traveling on the interstate. I am getting over 40 mpg on the highway traveling at about 77 mph.

2015 Audi A8 3.0T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 8A)


Review

We've owned luxury cars by Lexus, BMW, and Mercedes. After buying my first Audi, a 2016 A6 3.0 earlier in 2015, my wife was so impressed driving my car that she traded her Lexus RX350 in for a A8 L with the same spunky V6. I can't help but to compare the drive, handling and ride quality of the A8L to a Lexus LS460L I traded for my A6 earlier this year. The Audi beats the Lexus hands down. This A8 L handles so securely for such a large car. The V6 is strong, and provides plenty of power. The car is hushed, substantial, has a huge back seat, yet handles like a smaller sedan. Technology is top notch, with the exception of no USB ports? What was Audi thinking? Otherwise, the navigation is quite good. Interior fit and finish is superb, with great feel at every touch. The massaging and ventilated seats are a nice touch as well. Fuel economy with the V6 is excellent, at 34 mpg in a 1000 mile trip at highway speeds in excess of 75 mph. A very comfortable long haul road car. Combined mpg has been a respectable 25 mpg. The LED interior lighting is subdued and well executed. The LED headlights are piercing the night driving. If these Audis hold up well, we are certainly going to continue to be Audi repeat buyers.

2015 Audi A8 4.0T quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.0L 8cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

I have driven a Lexus for the past 16 years. I have never has a bad experience, but wanted a change. It has been two months and 4,000 miles. The Audi has delivered in every way. I loved the test drive, but find myself learning more about the car and feeling more at at home in the Audi every time I hit start... I got a lot more than I expected. There is a huge difference in Japanese vs German engineering. Design, acceleration, handling, features, air ride suspension (wow!), and the way I fit in the adjustable seat. The A8 offers subtle and spectacular at the same time. Don't buy a MB, BMW, or a Lexus without driving the Audi. Definitely worth your consideration....

Review

I had every top end car over the years & just got the Audi A8L 4.0 Engine this car is a beast. Everything about this car is top end from the sound system to the seats & the ride. I test drove the M/B-S & the B/M/W 750iL & went with the Audi A8L
