Fun to drive, but rotten electronics
By lewis m weston on


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


The car drives well(but not as well as
the 740iL it replaced) but the
electronics are a horror. To tune the
radio the driver needs to take his eyes
off the road. About half the time the
right outside mirror doesnt return to
normal position after reversing.The MMI
screen comes up blank if its been closed
before, and needs to be opened, closed
and opened again to work.After 2 months,
something drained the battery and the
car had to be towed to the dealer.

Best Features

Tiptronic transmission fun to drive, comfortable seating, good acceleration.

Worst Features

Easy-tuning radio,less fussy electronics.
