Electrical Malfunction
By baker on


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


Otherwise stellar car spoiled by
serious problem -- Nav system and other
elec. components periodically decide to
continue to drain power hours after the
car is switched off -- resulting in
dead battery. Three trips to dealer and
still no fix. Battery is in the trunk
if you need to jump it.

Best Features

Good blend of power, comfort and under- stated luxury -- when the battery is not dead.

Worst Features

De-bug electrical system. Phone system is not the most user friendly. Steering wheel audio controls are too limited and thus not very useful.
