I'm fairly peeved that I bought a car in 2015 that doesn't have USB ports. Didn't even look because every car I've been in since my '12 Q7 has had them, including every cheap rental. My '14 Audi S7 has them, as did my '14 Silverado. I assumed that there would have been some kind of progression of in the equipment on these cars since 2012. But seemingly, I bought the exact same car again with a slightly different options list. :-) Seems like an easy thing to work around, but they did not even provide a charger socket in the armrest, just on top of the console, near the shifter. So if you want to charge your phone you can cram it over in the glovebox or have your charger and wiring and phone sitting on top of the console like it was 1996 all over again. It was bad design in 2007 and it's comical in 2015. I'll have to go to a stereo shop to get wiring run into the armrest. Just like it was 1996. :-) Enough whining about that oversight. It's still the capable SUV it was in 2012. Because of the VW TDI scandal, I was unable to purchase the TDI. Which I thought was a phenomenal powertrain. So once I've driven it a while, I will review the new 3.0T more thoroughly. I was expecting it to be sadly underpowered by comparison, but so far I've been pleased with it. Sadly the back up camera setup has not changed, and compared to my other '14 model cars it seems really tiny and poorly laid out. As I said before, it really seems to be the same car as before but more options have become standard. Or at least more available? Big ones that I didn't get in my '12 are keyless entry and start, and XM traffic info on the nav display. Also, with the S line or prestige package, I got ventilated seats up front and heated seats in the back. The ventilated seats seem to work better than those in my '07 A8. They also offer a black optics package which blacks out almost everything.

Currently I have 35k miles on the car and found out there was a major timing chain issue, something I didn't expect on a luxury car. Fairly quiet cabin with obvious road noise from the factory tires and progressively get worse as tires wear out. Annoying rattle noise on the sunroof screen.

Looked hi and low for a Q7 TDI Premium Plus. Found one and couldn't be happier. Had to take it in for a minor adjustment on the aft sunroof that rattled. Local dealer was very supportive. Yes it might be pricey, but your getting alot for the money. The quality of build, fit and finish is top notch. (update)several months later and i hardly get to drive it. had to replace aft brakes. easy do it yourself. everything on this vehicle is easy. just do research. transmission fluid is dextron VI. local parts store has lifetime warranty on all parts. (update update) wife drove my other vehicle and asked if she could have her Audi back. Took Audi on a road trip and actually got a tad bit over 700 miles on a tank of fuel. This vehicle is a keeper to me.
Where to begin with this car? The biggest problem is that the controls, for the most part, just make no sense. Let's take safety - all other modern vehicles with front sensors alert you when parking. With this car, you have to enable the feature (or go into reverse first) before the system becomes active. That's not just non-intuitive, but just downright dumb. As for the side assist, make a turn when a car is next to you and nothing will register. The side assist is only blind spot assist, and there are strict parameters where this function only works. This is junk - the truth in engineering is that you help the driver and take the risk out of driving by adding modern technology, not that you take technology and make it not work the way it should. Other controls are not intuitive either - from AC to the pain of having to use the wheel to enter an address for navigation. Interior looks nice, but functionality and design are fighting each other. Lexus and Infinity vehicles have much better fit and finish to them and are intuitive and easy to use.
