2012 Q5 @ 20k Miles - Great SUV
By jolietjay on


2012 Audi Q5 2.0T Premium quattro 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


We just passed 20k miles on a 2012 2.0T Premium Plus; and just passed the 1 year anniversary of buying this vehicle. Overall this has been a great crossover SUV. Made it through the Chicago Winter and I found myself driving it more than my 2010 4Runner with 4WD. The AWD is great in the snow and on icy roads. The front seats offer a lot of room, and at 6'3" AND 250 lbs.....I fit in this car just fine. Plenty of head room. More head room than most full size SUVs. The back section doesn't offer as much storage space as a full size SUV, but the back seats to fold (almost) flat to make a pretty good sized cargo space. If you need to haul a lot on a long trip, the integrated roof rails

Favorite Features

Engine Response - the 2.0T is remarkable powerful and responsive. Handling - tight handling, good response from the stearing wheel. Very comfortable drive, but at the same time it really grips the road. Refined Interior - great finishes, leather seats, comfort, great sounding sound system. Technology - Sirius/XM Radio, Bluetooth connections to your mobile phone. Sunroom - full panoramic sun roof is great. Gas Mileage - drove 3000 miles on a vacation from Chicago to NC and back.....averaged 25mpg with a roof cargo box and bike rack on the hitch.

Suggested Improvements

Nothing major, but some minor pet peaves. Chrome trim around the outside mirrors reflects off the side windows, slightly annoying. Fog Lights - why have to turn them on every time you get in the car at night, can't you just set them to stay on. Why not match the white light of the Bi-Xenon headlights? Sunroof Shade - it should be a little more solid in fabric to fully block the sun; not entirely a shade. Setting the clock - should be simple, instead you need to navigate the computer interface.....not easy. Go for the upgraded 5 spoke wheels.....the standard wheels are IMPOSSIBLE to keep clean with all the brake dust. Having 12 spokes is a lot of surface to clean.
