2009 Audi Q7 SUV 3.6 Premium quattro 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


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.

Review

Starting from first miles till now (10k) brakes are making crazy noise. Dealer did not find any problem. But you know what is best? Customer service of Audi. They answered that this is normal because they use some new materials of braking pads. And it gives more noise than other cars. So it is normal for Audi that their 55k$ new car is giving noise on street like some 20 years junk worse 500 bucks. Do not buy Audi, do not support awful company which do not want to help its customers in any way. My is going to trade in next month.

Review

There really are a lot of things to like about this car. For an SUV, it handles like a car and is much more comfortable of a drive than most of the other luxury SUVs on the road. However, there are a couple of things that really are unacceptable for a 60,000 car. 1. cheap plastic all over interior (see plastic foot rest just to the left of the brake pedal that cracked within a year) 2. doors are really cheap vs. bmw or mercedes. witnessed firsthand when I broke a interior mechanism in door opening on icy morning 3. MMI - why a cup holder right above a non-sealed system? 2 oz of gatorade fried out my track wheel to the tune of 800 4. handles HORRIBLY in the snow!!! 5. fuel mlg stinks


Best Features

heated steering wheel the non-console part of the MMI full-length sunroof and sunscreen


Worst Features

1. seal the MMI console and include in maintenance plan. I am guessing this is number 1 complaint. 2. don't cut corners with a lot of plastic and cheap doors
