"I own a 2010 A8 with 50K pampered miles. I’ve had very few mechanical issues with this car during my (6) years of ownership compared to the 2003 Audi S8 I owned previously. Regular/scheduled maintenance is expensive. Warranty repairs are expensive as well, although I only pay the deductible ($250) under a Fidelity Platinum coverage warranty. I’m nervous to own this car off-warranty, but I’ve enjoyed owning & driving this large touring sedan. The exterior is understated and subtle. The interior is top-notch and high quality. Power is effortless. "
