2009 Audi Q7 TDI Premium quattro 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


Review

From the start of this new car i did everything audi, maintenance, repairs, parts. After 95,000 it star to ed falling apart. Not counting maintenance, brakes every 15000, tires every 25,000, i just spent $7800 on parts and labor. A car should last a bit longer then 100000 miles.


Worst Features

Better craftsmanship.

2009 Audi Q7 TDI Premium quattro 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


Review

I have had this car/truck/suv for 6 years now. Pros: First of all, a lot of people come up and tell me how cool looking this car is. A lot of folks take pics too. Second, - the car has awesome 4WD on ice and the way it handles overtaking(passing) and gets a vroom is nice. third- the interiors are awesome looking. Cons: a) While under warranty the battery broke, the amplifier broke, the no sensor broke, some other electrical issues. b) as soon as the 4 year warranty ended, the ad-blue pump broke malfunctioned and had to be replaced for 2000 bucks. c) on its 5 year run- the a/c compressor broke costing 3000 repairs, the rear light holder burnt, front lights broke...lemon. don't buy


Best Features

just the looks


Worst Features

abysmal electrical features for the price tag Extremely poor service quality. the audi dealership at best can do some oil filter change. they can't figure most of the problems and provide solutions the first time around. you will have to visit them multiple times to get to the solution. in my opinion. not worth the buy.

2009 Audi Q7 3.6 Premium quattro 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

When the car has no problems it runs great, performance is very good, ride control is spectacular ride conform on the rough side. Problems i had included water inside the car because of poor design for drain pipes coming from the roof lines. All of the electronics went out, had it fixed under pre-owned warranty but had to hassle to get it done. Audi was trying to convince me that it was my problem that I did not clean the drain pipes, very hard to do especially if you don't have a large garage with tons of space. Audi dealer fixed only one drain pipe the rear still collecting water in the trunk area after a car wash. Rear tailgate stopped functioning, closes by itself, super dangerous.


Best Features

The way that the car drives, I really like the looks, interior/exterior design is great. Q7 keeps it's new look for years not moths like the Japanese/American cars. There is fair amount of space in the car. Blind spot works great.


Worst Features

Tire pressure monitoring system could show which tire has a problem, it's stupid that you have to go to check each tire. Tailgate failure is unacceptable !!! Fixed the drain pipes make it future proof so they do not leak water inside the car onto the electronics.

2009 Audi Q7 3.6 quattro 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Drives smooth plenty of pick up despite posts stating otherwise. Quattro awd system is great in bad weather and with the correct tires almost unstoppable in snow. Seats are very comfortable and there is plenty of room for the whole family. 20,000 miles and the brakes and tires are fine. I have seen posts stating otherwise but it has to do with how the car is driven. The tires will be good until 50,000 miles. Also fuel economy is not great but if you can afford the car then you can afford the gas otherwise buy a Yaris.


Best Features

Quattro awd, handling, interior.


Worst Features

Would suggest making backup camera a standard on all models.

Review

Have driven LR3, X5 and Q7. Q7 just doesn't seem to be the same quality. Many problems - breaks wear out extremely quickly, rear lift gate problems (twice), MPG is not as advertised based on my calcs, nterior feels cramped, ergonomically uncomfortable. Teen kids keep asking when can we get a new SUV. We end up driving our BMW sedan to local ski resorts, beaches. Can't wait for lease to be over.
