Cons: acceleration problem
Advice: wait to see the outcome of acceleration issueI bought an A8 in July 05. Shortly after taking delivery I was on the freeway and the car began accelerating quickly even after the brakes were applied. Dealership said that perhaps I hit the cruise control or the manual shifting pedals. It happen again about a week or two later.
