2002 Audi S8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is BY FAR the best Audi I have ever driven, and I've driven quite a few. The ride, power, luxury ... just awesome. Any doubt that anyone has about this car is purely groundless. Quattro = best 4-wheel drive system ever. Cannot be beat. One and only flaw: Doesn't exactly sip gas... but not really hard on it either (a 1998 A6 is harder on gas) since it is made of aluminum. Which is also nice, since it improves stiffness and safety without increasing weight (but increasing price :). Still definately worth it. 360 hp = awesome power. Every possible luxury appointment has been added. Just an all-around awesome car.


Favorite Features

quattro quattro quattro.... what else ... Symphony II Sound system ... aluminum frame (light and stiff) 360 horses ... wow.


Suggested Improvements

attempt to improve fuel economy ... but tough with a big car.

Review

Great road car. Steering feels a little light but precise. Car feels lighter than it is...Fast, quick to turn-in, balanced in corners, amazing brakes. Dunlops supplied are a dissapointment. One blew for no known reason and a second develop blister. Remaining 2 have scalloped badly in under 10k miles. Alignment checked OK.


Favorite Features

AWD, TIP, front seats to die for.


Suggested Improvements

Could use a taller OD for better highway mileage.

Review

I HAVE HAD VIRTUALLY NO PROBLEMS WITH MY S8. I DON'T LIKE THE NAVIGATIONAL SYSTEM AND WOULDN'T PURCHASE IT AGAIN! CUP HOLDERS ARE WEAK! OTHERWISE NO COMPLAINTS.


Favorite Features

PERFORMANCE IS OUTSTANDING! GREAT LOOKING CAR BUT NO ONE KNOWS WHAT IT IS!


Suggested Improvements

CUP HOLDERS POORLY DESIGNED AND NAVIGATIONAL SYSTEM (SHOULD USE A DVD INSTEAD OF CD'S)

Review

This S8 has incredibly smooth acceleration from the 4.2 liter V8 that is normally aspirated. No turbo or supercharger jerk. Handling/its very responsive for its large size with the Brembo brakes more than ample. All in all, a great vehicle for open road driving!


Favorite Features

Wonderful leather seats/ luxurious interior. Acoustical windows and insulation/very minimal exterior noise.Didn't even realize that a dumptruck was next to me until I looked over and saw it/coudln't hear it.


Suggested Improvements

Audi keys need to be improved as they tend to come apart{the plastic cases I mean}
