Buyer beware of water pump issues
By Mark on


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


I have been very happy with my Audi Q5 until today. Had car towed into dealership after the coolant burst in the engine compartment. I pretty much lost all coolant - luckily i was about to park it in the garage. Found out today that the water pump failed at 7,800 miles. It is covered under warranty but warranty or not this is a major issue. I have so far seen a mass of posts with the same issue. Fortunately for me the engine never had the opportunity to overheat. Audi needs to address the issue with their current owners immediately.

Best Features

Style, performance, interior.

Worst Features

Leather could be better and seats could use a little more contour.
