1999 Audi A8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


This car, while I love the styling and driving it, is the largest disappointment I have ever had in a car. In the 19 months or so that I have had the car, I have had over $12K in repairs in the car. Between depreciation and cost of repairs, the car has cost me nearly $2K a month to drive, not including gas and insurance. I could have gotten a new BMW if I had wanted to pay that kind of money each month. The transmission went out on the car at 92K miles and it is $5500 to replace through Audi. Nothing from Audi has more than a 12 month/12K mile warrantee. That is pitiful considering the cost and that there are no other replacements.

Best Features

I like the get up and go when it is on the road.

Worst Features

Build a better quality car and have confidence in what you are selling by backing it with more than a 12 month/12K mile warantee. Show that you are worth the cost that you demand or will at least stand behind your product for that kind of cost.
