2009 Audi Q7 SUV 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 SUV 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.

Review

Purchased my Q7 in Aug 0f '09 and on the third day of ownership an annoying rattle developed in the sunroof, then in one of the rear quarter panels, then in the tailgate and eventually the second row seats. Now my $60K dream car sounds like a Yugo on a logging road. Overall I'm very pleased with the quality and performance of the Q7, but believe that Audi needs to dedicate more attention to the fit and finish of interior materials. Heading down to Portland today to trade the noisy beast for a luxury car that actually rides and sounds like a luxury car. Too Bad.


Best Features

Performance and styling.


Worst Features

Ensure proper fit and finish of interior materials to preclude rattles. Improve fuel economy (my 5.7L F150 gets better mileage).

Review

I bought Q7 July 2009. Brought it back to dealer immediately for squeaking brakes, not just regular squeak but the kind that people outside look over at your car-was told its normal due to heavy vehicle, could be humidity. I have AudiCare & have repeatedly asked brakes to be inspected at ea visit. was told to spray a hose directly at brakes to reduce squeak. brought it back in around 25k miles - Service Dept told me to get on open road, drive as fast as i could without taking out a kid (yes, it's what they said) and brake quickly a few times. Really?! I just want to feel like Audi stands by their product. I thought I'd feel happy that we worked hard to buy this car. I feel "duped" by Audi.


Best Features

heated seats, sits high off road, navigation


Worst Features

Audi should address brake issue.
