Big Car Drives Like a Small Car
By kapbak on


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


A8 is so much fun to drive. Traded in
my S500, and the A8 has a much
sportier ride and handling. Powerful
engine. Design is beautifully
simple. Interior is exquisite. I love
the MMI, navigation is much better
than MB. Several nits: Slight
hesitation on rapid acceleration,
Pass. rear headrests obscure rear
right view, phone not really
integrated into car system the way it
was in my MB(almost like an
aftermarket add-on),dynamic memory in
radio doesn't find all the major
stations, If you leave the wipers
turned on when you shut the car
off, they do not start again when you
startup the car- you have to turn the
wipers off and then on again.

Best Features

Great looks, handling and ride, quattro geat in snow, MMI, roomy rear seat, auto trunk-closer

Worst Features

Rear seat headrests should fold down, better integrated phone, auto-door- closers.
