2001 Audi A8 L Quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


Bought the car certified-preowned, (used). Car was in a front end/rear end collision so price was lower than listed. In spite of the collision history, body panel fit is excellent. Things that have gone wrong...whoever put the drain system for the moonroof in did so incorrectly causing a leak when it rained, the dealer took three trys to get it fixed. Other than that MAP air sensor, trans filter service and power steering fluid leak repair. Above and regular maintenance is all that I've had to have done to the vehicle. Out of warranty so sought out non-dealer service which halved the cost of repairs.

Best Features

Great acceleration considering the size of the beast(the tiptronic makes it even quicker), good music system, standard Bose with those little speakers everywhere, most comfortable seating and suspension Ive had in a luxury auto (considering I've had a large model Benz).

Worst Features

Why the right/left heating cooling controls, front and back enough. Way to upgrade GPS to a larger screen, telephone seems redundant as cellphones offer less expense and greater flexibility.
