Not sure now


I have a 1998 A8 with 82,000 miles. I just brought a trans for 3,500. drove the car for a month and all of a sudden it did not want to accelerate.. The car doesn't pick up speed until 40mph; it's basically stuck in third gear.

General Comments:

This car is seriously quick, and handles like it's on rails.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
