2009 Audi Q7 Diesel 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.

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.

Review

Excellent quality, thoughtful design, excellent performance and great mileage. Doesn't drive or smell like your Dad's diesel. Highly recommend for price/value ratio. Will likely exceed your expectations as it did mine - 115 mph cruising UP a 30% grade mountain road, quite,no rattles and so smooth like butter excellent feel on the wheel. No American car can compete on quality or value for a dollar. I've owned new Porsche and several new Mercedes 360SD, 450SL and 560SL - Regardless of money, I'd rather own this car, and that is saying a lot. Reading this you might get the impression I am not a tough critic, you would be wrong.


Best Features

Performance Quality Comfort features Mileage Reliability


Worst Features

That's a tough one. After eleven months of ownership can not think of one improvement. Criticisms I've read for MMI and cruise control about not-user friendly, I disagree and feel unfair as they come from reviewers who only use the car for a short test period. In reality they are excellent.

Review

I love this car. The diesel engine is quiet and the mileage is exceptional. I normally average about 24 in combined driving. I hardly use the 3rd row except for stuff (I couldn't even get back there to try it out). What I love most is the driving experience. Everything is at your fingertips and the dash layout is intuitive. I would recommend this car for anyone looking for great mileage, fantastic driving experience, and great service.


Best Features

Exterior styling, legroom/headroom, iPhone/MMI interface, driving comfort.


Worst Features

Cup holders - need 2 readily accessible. Better sync with I Phone to include email and text. Flip down mirrors on reverse. Remote open and close liftgate.

Review

I have owned this fine vehicle for about 8,000 miles and I absolutely love it. Aside from everything a luxury vehicle provides, this thing is quite frugal. On long highway trips, I commonly see 27 to 29 mpg. Driving from my home in Minneapolis to downtown St. Paul, I see MPG readings from 24 to 29 depending on how heavy traffic is. Although the HP is lower than the V6 gas or the V8 gas engines, the torque is quite substantial and I have never felt that the vehicle was underpowered in any way. Towing a 23 fishing boat around really exemplifies the advantage of large torque numbers. The Q7 has a super quiet interior, very comfortable. If you are looking at the Q7, get the Tdi.


Best Features

Audi side assist blind spot monitoring. Bluetooth phone. iPod interface. Auxiliary heat. 7-passenger seating. Tdi MPG. Audi Parking System. Navigation. Voice commands for Nav, audio, etc...


Worst Features

Would like to have ordered it with adaptive cruise and adaptive suspension but these options were not available in '09. They are in '10 though.
