AUDM - Allseason Ultimate Driving Machine by Adrian Minnesota on 05/02/2006. Trim: 2001 Audi A8 L, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Amazing performance. Quality parts and fits. Perfect vehicle for long travel yet enough to enjoy the perofmance as well. This car does not scream at you or turn heads since it is very subtly designed. When you ride, you will notice this is the ultimate driving machine.
Cons: Hydraulic keyless system. Should be electronic since the pump goes out often. No adequette cup holders but hey, it is German luxury vehicle and you are not suppose to drink while driving.
Overall review: I used to have 97 A8. BAD transmission problem for 97-99 A8's. 2001 seems got rid of the bug and added few pointers. Excellent value when looking for a used A8L. This is a all season ultimate driving machine.

Buyer Beware by An MSN Autos Consumer on 09/28/2010. Trim: 2001 Audi A8 L, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Lots of luxury and toys. Awsome BOSE sound system.
Cons: 6 months and $3500 in repairs. By far the worst used car I ever owned. Never again.
Overall review: Unless you have a lot of money and time, stay away from this car. Could not wait to dump it.

Old school values, performance and quality. by Ax. on 08/05/2008. Trim: 2001 Audi A8 4.2, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Lots of power, very fast and extremely quiet ride. Great interior design and quality. All aluminium body construction. Outstanding quattro all wheel drive and winter handling. Good gas milage (23MPG mixed). Awesome stereo sound (standard Bose Audi Symphony). Mark Levinson stereo available for 8k more... .
Cons: Weak brakes.
Overall review: Pick one up that is 2-4 years old to avoid the initial depreciation and enjoy the best luxury car in that price range. Quattro drive, power, comfort and aluminium body construction make the A8 stand above Mercedes S class and definitely BMW 7 series. Lexus LS-460 comes close, but it is rear wheel drive only.

Solid Car. by Paul, Essex, UK. on 09/23/2006. Trim: 2001 Audi A8 L, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Nice solid car, excellent engineering, excellent quality apart from the cons...
Cons: Seems to pickup stone chips a little too much for my liking. Along the same vein platic trims around doors etc. seem to loose paint a little easuer than they should.
Overall review: Better than Merc/BMW equivs imo expecially for lower cost. Mine is a 2.8 quattro though, didnt see the option for that @ top.
