Way to much bling. Faulty parts.

Spent thousands of dollars replacing faulty sensors. The parts that they were hooked up to were all fine. i.e. Coolant level sensor showed low coolant level. Coolant level was fine, the sensor was bad. Replaced numerous parts under factory warranty. i.e. trunk motor, MMI button pack etc All of these parts failed again. Some more than once. Makes absolutely no sense to replace faulty parts with more faulty parts. It reached the point when the cost of repair exceeded the car's value. After 11 years of ownership, still did not discover what all the bling was there for.

Smoothest car I've owned

This car is great it's very spacious, it drives very smooth, and it's extremely fast. It is by far the best car that I have owned.

Nice car

Very good performance car, air suspension is top notch. A luxury full size car that competes with the heavy hitting luxury cars. Do your research on common problems associated with car. You will see that most are cosmetic in nature.

A joy to own and drive daily

I have been blessed to have owned 10 Audi cars since 1983. They all have been fantastic in their own way. I have a 2004 Audi A8 3.0 V6 Multitronic sport. I have owned it for 4 years and the car has been a joy to drive. It's just turn 148,000 miles and I still love driving it everywhere. I have owned lots of others makes of car but always end up wanting another Audi car. I also when to Germany to the Audi factory and watch them build the cars. They know how to build quality, reliability into all their cars. Would totally recommend buying a well looked after used Audi.

Still-Very nice ride at 113000 miles

Just bought 2004 A8 L with 113000 mi and love the car! I am tall and drive about 200 miles day. The all wheel drive is exactly what I need for the winter snow and there's more room and luxery in this car than I expected. The massage seats while also in heat mode really make the long drives comfortable. Every Audi owner I talked to say the same thing about the 4.2L motor-Reliable. And-- I will not be going back to the cadillac. They are a bit pricey but so far very worth it!

Engineering Marvel

This thing (2004 A8L) is a rocket ship when needed or an extremely comfortable sedan for 4 people at 250lbs with plenty of head and legroom. Will buy a new one in the next couple of years (new to me, used of course!)

Great car

I was hesitant to go from a 2000 Camaro SS Convertible to a big luxury sedan because I love the handling & performance of sports cars. I LOVE the Audi A8L! With the Quattro drive it handles like a sports car - with a big leather sofa in the back. And what a smooth ride. It doesn't feel like a big car at all to me.
