Nice Car, Loads of Rattles
By JPiper on
2009 Audi Q7 3.6 quattro 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
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.
Performance and styling.
Ensure proper fit and finish of interior materials to preclude rattles. Improve fuel economy (my 5.7L F150 gets better mileage).
