Best Car I have ever owned

by Luxury Sedan Owner from Washington, DC | April 13, 2013

My 1998 A8 has over 200,000 miles. I bought it at 75,000. It is by far the best and most reliable car I have ever owned. Except for brakes, tires, plugs and the battery, the only major repair I had was the fuel pump replacement which cost less than $500 with an after market pump and a talented mechanic. The car has spent most of it's life without a garage yet after 14 years the paint still has a beautiful gloss sheen.

Worst car I ever owned....by far

by Sully from Jersey City,NJ | January 2, 2012

Incredibly expensive to maintain. Gurantted you will need to replace the transmission and upper and lower control arms more than once. Great looking car, but RUN from these after 100,000 miles hit the clock.

BIG DISAPPOINTMENT

by analytikellie from Connecticut | June 27, 2007

All I have to say is TRANSMISSION, TRANSMISSION, TRANSMISSION!!!!! What does it take to get a recall? For the cost of this vehicle you should demand more! Do your homework. This is my third Audi and my last!
