2008 Audi Q7 3.6 Premium quattro 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Good car so far. Lots of comments on the great looks. No major issues to date. Ready for new tires at 27K. Brakes are coming. Pull a 5000lb boat with some difficulty. Pulls well up to about 50mph then struggles trying to maintain 60mph+, even on the slightest hill. I manually shift to keep the gearing correct or the engine just rev's really high. Recommend the 3.0 TDI or the 4.2 V8 if you plan to pull more than 3000lbs. My biggest beef is the lack of a rear hatch close feature on the key fob. Audi seems to think your hands are full when loading, but not full when unloading. Can't reach the button with full hands. Wife wants another when the lease is up. Probably the TDI Prestige.
Looks, Bose stereo is good, interior fit, finish and ergonomics. Heated seats.
Electric rear hatch needs a close button inside and on the key fob. Especially on the key fob. Ride is a little harsh (20" wheels) and the exhaust/engine noise can get annoying. Needs more sound dampening, but not a major issue.
