2009 Audi Q5 3.2 Premium quattro 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Bought a 2009 in 2016 with 65k miles on it. Was a one owner and it ran and looked great. Good news is it still runs and looks great as of October/18 and 90k miles. Great handling at the expense of a rough ride. Great acceleration with decent gas mileage. Do my own oil changes and found a local technician to do other work for a reasonable rate. Dealers are expensive, but mine offer VERY nice loaner cars. Electric steering feels weird at low speeds, but otherwise we love the car and glad we bought it

Review

First off, I purchased my Q5 with 50,000 miles 3 years ago and it now has 110,000 miles. I have done NOTHING to the vehicle except replace the break pads (front and rear) and put new tires on. My vehicles still rides like a dream and we absolutely love it. It floats on the roads and over bumps, and we are set on getting a newer model 2013 and up next. I have not taken my car at all to the Audi dealership because and I avoid them like the plague. I did my brakes at a local Belle Tire for half the price the Audi dealer wanted and I even change my oil at Belle tire and I run Amsoil Oil ONLY in my car. I have noticed my Q5 runs quieter with this oil than the actually oil the Audi dealer uses. Oh and i have the 3.2. which is much more solid than the 2.0. I hope this helps

Review

Audi's have a airbag recall. We found out when we were trading ours in to purchase a new Lincoln MKX. I called Audi and checked online and at this moment there is no fix!!! And they have until December 2019 to find a fix. So, we have decided to lose thousands and trade it in anyway. I feel like we were robbed by Tanaka and robbed by Audi. Buy American!!

Review

We purchased this car with 24,000 miles on it, and we have all the service records. The owners before us were very meticulous, and they had very few issues, and we have now put 6,000 miles on it and still have had no problems. The review that complains about having to replace the brakes at 30k is driving in the city constantly, I can tell because they also had to have the carbon build-up cleaned. Carbon build-up is a fact of life for direct injected engines, but when the car is driven at highway speed, the combustion chamber gets hot enough to burn off the carbon. Also, take care of your car. Change the oil with VW 502 00 approved oil every 5,000 miles, and keep up on scheduled maintenance.


Best Features

Power, agility, MMI, navigation, silent cabin (you could whisper to someone going 100 MPH), power lift gate, advanced key, smooth engine.


Worst Features

Only issue would be that the suspension is a little firm, but to soften it would compromise handling.
