By Poor Quality on


2005 Audi A8 L quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Purchased a certified pre-owned with 25k miles. Has been in the dealer 17 times within a little over a year of ownership: sunroof not closing, improperly designed thermostat (Audi's words not mine), Software controller staying and draining battery ($450 to replace, not covered under warranty).

Best Features

Adaptive Air Suspension, Body style

Worst Features

Upgrade cheap plastic feeling controls: (blinker, paddle shifters) improve reliability, stand behind your products, update MMI software to latest version before car is sold, swap out plastic parts for metal.
