Yes, but my wife gets the Lexus. How has your experience been as between
the Audi and Mercedes lines?
I'm hoping my 2002 S8 Audi will be more reliable than my 1999 S420 was
(electronics, not mechanical, the small V 8 was great).
That's true. I won't know for quite a while since the S8 only has 22,000
miles on it. I do have an extended warranty, just in case, but that
doesn't answer the question of reliability. If this Audi isn't reliable,
it will be the last German vehicle that I own.
I will say that my Porsche 911s of the 70s and 80s were bulletproof, and I
still hold this bias that high end German vehicles "should" be excellent.
The Mercedes was a disappointment (mild) in that regard.
As you say, I don't know enough yet to have an opinion on the Audi. I love
the car, and I hope it will be reliable.
