2004 Audi A8 L quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


This my first Audi, I have previously
driven other high end sedans and sport
cars. The beautiful interior,
especially the dash was the best
selling point. The car has great
power, handling and braking. I have
had a number of serious technical
problems. The first was being locked
out of the car, with only 500 miles, a
non operatin heated steering wheel,
and most importantly a less than
complete NAV system. The NAV system
occasionally takes me to the right
address in the wrong town. It also
fails to give complete numerical
addresses. Audi does not seem to have
a fix for this problem.

Best Features

The car's handling and comfortable seats make a long ride very comfortable. The heated seats are great. The MMI system has some great features, but is mot completely intuitive.

Worst Features

Improve the software on the Nav system. Provide a rear video camera, and have rear headrests that drop down, so that its easier to change lanes. Incorporate satelite radio, a DVD sound system, tape player and move the CD player to the middle of the dash.
