"Best car I have owned in more than 40 years of car ownership. Smooth and quiet and fast when it needs to be. Best Luxury car in the marketplace. The interior is user friendly and very ergonomic. This car has 178,000 miles and I am heading for 300,000. This A8L stills looks sharp."

Pros: "great everyday luxury without decadance"

Cons: "can't think of any"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Have mercedes convertible and full size rover but this car is by far our favorite! The size is better being a non L model. We have had both L and non L but for the everyday use the L seems too big. Remember that Mercedes, my brother has the S500 and just So big. Most of the time it's just him in it, sometimes smaller is better. We got the optional wheels and still get comments on how great they look!"

Pros: "Nice balance between sportiness and luxury."

Cons: "Maintenance on year number 6 is a bit expensive."

"After 6 years of ownership still looks and drives like a new vehicle. The styling is classic. Audi hit a homerun with the A8 models. Have purchased a 2015 A8 and now we have two. This one still performs as well as the new one after 50,000+ miles."
