compliments. Excellent milage for 300

suspsension
Had a few minor issues covered under
warrenty but my dealer (Hoehn) has been
great.

Review

This car has great power and is a joy to
drive. Also, the car does great in the
winter, and does not even need snow
tires in Vermont where we normally get
more than 110 inches of snow. I have
never been stuck, even going up in the
mountains while going skiing.


Best Features

solar package aluminum frame and body panels 300 bhp V8 tiptronic transmission 17" polished wheels double insulated glass


Worst Features

make a six speed manual available

Review

My car now has 103,000 and it has not
had any problems at all. Also, it does
great in the snow, even deep snow. The
dual climate control is a well designed
feature. The heated seats work very
well, and heat up fast even when it is
-25, like it was a few times this
winter. This car does not handle like
other cars in the same class, it feels
light and nimble (relative to the
size), and can be driven at it's
handling limits with ease.


Best Features

The power solar sunroof. It is very effective.

Review

I love my A8. All wheel drive makes
it a MUST in Michigan. $550 for a
broken armrest, drivers side only is a
bit insane, but I expected it. I
can't find any performance accessories
for it on line.


Best Features

All wheel drive. Fast.


Worst Features

Sluggish unless you really step on the pedal. Brakes are soft. Weak Stereo.

Review

A delight to drive. And a horror to
bring to the Audi shop. Their idea of
pricing is unreal. The major problem is
suspension parts, obvious if you change
your own oil as I do. Every carrying
arms has electronic sensors, it
appears. Nothing wears out without a
whole subassembly to replace it. Most
awful: a broken headlight lens cost
$1100 to replace -- what? -- a light
assembly going deep into the engine
compartment. That aside, this is the
best car I've owned (second best was a
1994 Audi 5000 stick shift, just as
pretty in the driveway!).
