Mechanical Nightmare

by Disappointed S5 owner from Whitefish, MT | September 20, 2013

Recently purchased a used 2008 S5. Made the purchase based on exterior styling and expected reliability. After 2500miles (45,000 total now) I have put $10k into repairs and maintenance to keep the car running. All repairs have been "known issues". These highly engineered vehicles are mechanical nightmares . I purchased the car as a toy to drive on Sundays but will be selling or trading it as soon as it's out of the repair shop. If you intend to purchase make sure you have the extended warranty to cover all of the maintenance issues you will encounter.

Wicked car!

by King Ging from | January 8, 2009

Love it. No issues. Tight, fast and nice engine sound. I have black on black. Great sound system and bluetooth works great. GPS is also the best I have used compared to Mitsubishi, GM, Landrover and Mercedes. Pricey, but I bought mine used. So no real issue for me.

Smooth

by Chee from Los angeles, CA | November 21, 2007

" Chee " I have a friend that works at a Audi dealership and had the opportunity to drive the S5. Style, design, : This car is very sexy the minute you look at it. It's characteristics similates with the new BMW 3 series coupe, but is very distinctive in it's own. The styling on this car demands respect. Other drivers will speed up, slow down, or pull over to get a closer look. Design on this vehicle won't get outdated. 30 tears from now some young kid is going to want to restore a car like this. The interior had red leather bucket seats, but felt luxurious. Performance, handling, and comfort: The take off is smooth from start to finish. I really enjoyed the naturally aspirated 4.2 V8 engine. The S5 drove like a sports car but felt like a Cadillac. I got to take the car to 130 mph and felt as if I was only going 70 mph. What more can I say about it's AWD system other than the fact that it is AWD. Unless you're a professional driver AWD is best for handling. There's a $10,000 mark-up and people are lining up for it. If you're looking for a sports car without losing comfortability this one is for you.
