Audi A8 2.8 sport

Good points: Very comfortable and safe. Handling is very good, corners very well as though it running on rails. Unlike older Audi cars e.g. the Audi 80, its brakes are very positive. The engine is smooth and responsive. Heated seats are nice in the winter. Parking distance sensors front and rear are most useful. Has really long legs for motorway driving. Things that could be better: The designer positioned the electronic management system in a place where water could possibly get in and Audi excluded water ingress in their extended warranty. Electronic faults are a pain and expensive to fix. There is not a lot of room in the boot. Servicing costs by Audi are far too high and maintenance by Audi seems to be by changing expensive sub-units, its hard to find technical expertise within the main dealer that an experienced independent garage can offer. As it is an older petrol car it is getting costly fuel wise to run compared with the newer models.
