Audi A8 (94-02)

Value

4 out of 5

Better value than Merc or Jag. Equal value to BMW.

Costs

2 out of 5

Little bit expensive for dealer service, but nothing too outrageous.

Driving

5 out of 5

I love driving this car.

Performance

4 out of 5

Surprisingly quick off the line and blazes from 60 to 100mph.

Reliability

4 out of 5

One inconvenient surprise, but I believe it is reliable.

Image

5 out of 5

Not a Jag, BMW or Merc. Just what I wanted. Not everyone recognizes this sleeper, but those who do give nods and smiles.

Comfort

5 out of 5

I appreciate the sturdy ride, firm leather seats and walnut trim.

Security

Good, reasonable, unobtrusive security.

Service

4 out of 5

Local dealer needs 3 weeks lead time for oil change, but have also just dropped in and had them address minor issues then and there. Pricey, but excellent service.
