Pros: "Outstanding"

Cons: "Marginal cup holders. We (USA) are so spoiled."

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

"Impeccable road performance, engine, automatic transmission (with tiptronic control), economical and superb brakes and suspension. The A8L surrounds you with comfort and tons of room. The Audi dealership service department (Scottsdale) is outstanding."

My 3rd A8 and the best so far. Will get another...

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

"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."

"I have owned Lexus ES 400, Volvo and GM vehicles, and this Audi is without a doubt the best driving vehicle I have ever owned. I have 105,000 and I am going to 250K. Some repairs are a little more expensive, but the reliability with the car has been fantastic. Great gas mileage for a car this size. I generally average 24 per tank and can go 540 miles on the highway before refueling. I would definitely get a another and refer anybody to the Audi brand."
