Customer Service: 1.0 Overall Facilities: 2.0

In Sept. 2016 I stopped in to Sundance in St. Johns to look at a 2009 Ranger which was in the shop being detailed. It turned out not to be what I wanted but I was 'assigned' a salesman by the name of Lupe who took down all my contact information and a detailed description of the kind of truck I was looking for. I was assured he would contact me by the next week to show me some similar trucks, including some at the Grand Ledge store. Never heard from him or anyone else at Sundance again. Assuming I was not important enough for them I went looking at other local dealerships and found exactly the right truck for me. I felt appreciated there so they got my business and goodbye to Sundance!

Great Car. I have owned this car since 2000 with 18,000 miles and now have 152,000. I have minor repairs done to this car like a few of the 4 ball joints that are on both sides of the car. Cruise control brake switch and thermostat. The front seat is sagging a little bit and I may take it apart to adjust. The center arm rest broke so I repaired it myself. I replaced the timing belt and water pump at 100,000. I recommend changing the thermostat at same time as timing belt and water pump. I have not had any transmission problems and I have not changed transmission fluid. I don't drive it hard and fast and that policy seems to help longevity of any car.

141K and STILL going strong...

After three years of ownership I have no complaints. When first purchased I decided to replace or rebuild all the systems (@123K) so as not to have any concerns for a few years. Having little service history I continue to think this was a positive move in spite of the moneys spent. Since these repairs were a few years back, I continue keeping the Audi looking good with interior repairs (headliner, tint, etc.) My greatest problem was locating a clean example of an A8 (this took months) due to their limited numbers and dubious ownership. If you have never driven a A8 you need too. Best driving vehicle I've ever owned in fifty years, bar none, including a 66' 911S that was close to perfect until the A8. For my limited investment, I am more than pleased with this very fine example of German craftsmanship. Mileage: City 18/20 Highway 23/24

Drives like a dream. Good handling. You have to step on the gas when taking off from a stop but once going, it's ready to fly. Very comfortable especially on long trips. Expensive to repair. Lots of features to go wrong. It has 3 or 4 ball joints per side. I replaced 3 one side. The arm rest just broke and I haven't priced that out but I heard it could cost up to $500. I'll look for a used one. Recommended timing belt change between 80K and 100K cost was around $2K. I bought it with 18,000 miles and now have 102,000. It looks and feels better than most new cars. The blue book is only around $7K. I think it would be a steal at that price.

I've had no problems besides the front rack a few years ago. ($2k). Just scheduled maintenance involved and PM changing the transmission filter and fluid a few weeks ago. No door dings or rust with the Alum body. No squeaks or rattles either. Undervalued in the market.

A beautiful car; smooth and quiet ride. Was looking forward to several years of ownership and driving pleasure. However, transmission trouble, numerous MIL error codes and gasket leaks generated enormous shop bills, (primarily the labor to diagnose problem & access components for servicing). There are few options for service outside of the dealer network. Yet, dealers and independent shops that specialize in German automobile service alike seemed puzzled by some of the issues this car presented. At purchase time, it looked like a bargain in comparison to the Lexus LS400. However, long term cost of ownership is outrageous. 1 year repair/maint. costs exceeded $7K with no end in sight.

Cost of Disappointment

This car, while I love the styling and driving it, is the largest disappointment I have ever had in a car. In the 19 months or so that I have had the car, I have had over $12K in repairs in the car. Between depreciation and cost of repairs, the car has cost me nearly $2K a month to drive, not including gas and insurance. I could have gotten a new BMW if I had wanted to pay that kind of money each month. The transmission went out on the car at 92K miles and it is $5500 to replace through Audi. Nothing from Audi has more than a 12 month/12K mile warrantee. That is pitiful considering the cost and that there are no other replacements.

Sad state of affairs

These cars are really nice cars, however this particular model (mabye not the newer ones) has depreciated GREATLY over the years and has a ton of mechanical problems that are out of warranty and not cheap to fix. BEWARE of having to fix this car, it will NOT be cheap. That being said, it is a great car to drive and looks and handles very well.

Used to be a BMW nut, but now those double- kidney-grille vehicles just give me the creeps. The A8 has erased any former affection for the Bavarian creature. Audi is where it's at. Faster and more comfortable than 740i, but much more subtle.

This car is brilliant in design and execution. It is a spoiler for sure. Currently in the body shop due to a person not looking before backing from their parking space. I miss driving it.

Had the car three and a half years. Installed S8 suspension. Excellent build quality and style, still gets compliments. Excellent milage for 300 hp V8. Very comfortable for long trips. Excellent ride handling compromise after intalling factory S8/sport suspsension Had a few minor issues covered under warrenty but my dealer (Hoehn) has been great.

This car has great power and is a joy to drive. Also, the car does great in the winter, and does not even need snow tires in Vermont where we normally get more than 110 inches of snow. I have never been stuck, even going up in the mountains while going skiing.

My car now has 103,000 and it has not had any problems at all. Also, it does great in the snow, even deep snow. The dual climate control is a well designed feature. The heated seats work very well, and heat up fast even when it is -25, like it was a few times this winter. This car does not handle like other cars in the same class, it feels light and nimble (relative to the size), and can be driven at it's handling limits with ease.

I love my A8. All wheel drive makes it a MUST in Michigan. $550 for a broken armrest, drivers side only is a bit insane, but I expected it. I can't find any performance accessories for it on line.

A delight to drive. And a horror to bring to the Audi shop. Their idea of pricing is unreal. The major problem is suspension parts, obvious if you change your own oil as I do. Every carrying arms has electronic sensors, it appears. Nothing wears out without a whole subassembly to replace it. Most awful: a broken headlight lens cost $1100 to replace -- what? -- a light assembly going deep into the engine compartment. That aside, this is the best car I've owned (second best was a 1994 Audi 5000 stick shift, just as pretty in the driveway!).

I purchased an A8 because a BMW service advisor recommended it over a similar 740. He was right! Not only was it thousands less, but the performance is remarkable. The car is noticeably more nimble than the BMW. The quattro system was superb during the fall monsoons in Houston. Advantage Audi in Houston treated me like royalty when I brought the car in for an oil change, which surprised me as I bought the car in Ohio. If you haven't driven one, you should before you buy any other premium car.

I was looking for a high quality car that didn't attract attention. Puchased an A8 lease trade-in with 28000 mi. Automatic everything. Wish I had seats like this in my house. Quick and agile for its size. Refreshing to drive. 19mpg around town. 24mpg highway. After 15000 miles were still getting to know each other, but I'm hopeful for a long- term relationship.

Understated luxury in an all-aluminum chassis and body. It's sportslike handling capabilities from this "big cat" is just one of great things about this Audi A8. After 3 years, it still is as beautiful as the day I picked it up and has the same tight and powerful drive feel too.

Bought the car with 2600 miles on it from Audi. Great cruiser, handles pretty well for a 4k lb car, German comfort/build quality and quattro cannot be beat. Burled walnut everywhere. The Bose stereo is only OK - that's the only gripe I really have as far as features. A+ seats - big, firm and adjustable.

This car is a great car in every way. There is not a bit or wind or road noise at speeds of 75+ mph. Also the engine is very powerful and quiet. This car can handle better than cars that are much smaller and feels no larger than the A6 on the road.
