2000 Audi A8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD


I purchased my A8 used w/ 56K. It handles wonderfully for a large sedan and I average about 17/25 on premium fuel. I have found it to be both sophisticated and understated; and if you are looking for such a vehicle, it should be verboten for one not to at least consider the A8. That being said, I have had reliability issues. My thermostat had to be replaced, which required replacing the t and s belts, as well as the water pump, the CV boot tore causing my brake pad light to go off (?), my driver's interior door handle randomly broke and my radio randomly died. I have spent nearly $3,000 in the last yr. on this vehicle.

Best Features

Ski sock, Bose audio, engine, winter handling (with snow tires), superb V8 engine, heated seats.

Worst Features

Needs another front cupholder; DO NOT use the rear holders unless you want frapuccino-colored leather seats. The Zach Morris analog phone and the CD ROM nav are so 90s.
