    My car

    I traded in an 07 VW Toureg that I had driven for 6 years and put on 100,000 miles in and I really struggled to find a replacement. I decided to go up to 7 seats for practicality and space and looked at the Disco 4 (drive) and the XC90 (dated model) but dismissed both and had been warned off the Q7 until I test drove it and decided there and then it was what I wanted. I bought an 11 plate with 26,000 on the clock. I have had no problems with tyres (have done 6,000+ miles and no issue), the tech is great although satnav can go astray at times (particularly in newer developments) and driving position, quality of feel on the road and the overall space is superb. Would not hesitate to recommend. Parking in a multi-storey can be awkward (due to the turning circle) but generally not had an issue getting into normal parking bays. Fuel efficiency for the size is unbelievable.

    My car

    Fantastic car! The changes on the 2011 model make a massive difference and I can only assume that nobody at What Car has actually driven this car or lived with it for even a short period. It is packed with great technology, which makes Long trips effortless. Playback of my iPhone is via a great Bluetooth set up, the sat nav is great, the adjustments for off road or sporty drive can be left to switch automatically depending on your terrain and driving style and the fuel economy goes to over 40mog on motorway trips, unbelievable for a car this size. The issue with the tyres (like all premature tyre wear) is down to keeping the tyres inflated to the maximum pressure. It's a little annoying to have to keep checking the tyre pressure every few thousand miles but I have done almost 10,000 miles so far and the tread depths have hardly reduced.

I had to pay for one of them and audi paid for the other,the dealer had my car for 5 days to do the realinement of the wheels?,i thought problem over,after another 4ooo miles 10,000 miles in total in a new car i need 2 more tyres for the front again, and at £200 per tyre that is if you buy them privatley and not from audi Was quoted up to £350.00 each. i dont care how nice this car is, i will be looking for a different make if audi do not put this problem right,Next stop Solicitor/then WATCHDOG, Watch this space

    My car

    Generally I change my car after 6 months & having owned numerous 4WD's incl. Disco's, BMW X5, Toyota LC Amazons, Patrols & 4 Volvo XC 90's, the Q7 is as Tina Turner would say "simply the best"

    Fuel economy is amazing for a large vehicle (av. 29.5) & on steady trips 34+ is possible. First service at 19000 miles was £240 & despite covering 28000 miles I still have 3.5mm left on the front tyres & 5mm on the rear

    The quality of the BOSE sound system is truly quite remarkable although the AUDI GPS can be quite frustrating; why travel 200 miles when you can do 230? I have resorted to back-up with TOM TOM on long journeys.

    In contrast to other reviews, York Audi have extended unprecedented levels of customer service.

    I have 2 criticisms with the Q7; firstly due to the height of the boot floor luggage space is very poor compared with similar vehicles. Like other Q7 owners we have had to purchase a top box to accommodate the holiday luggage. We can't even erect the dog cage due to insufficient height. Secondly, Audi have failed to recognise that there is a large area of windscreen between the driver & passenger sun shields & we are constantly being "blinded" by low sunshine in this area making driving at best uncomfortable & often dangerous. That said, the Q7 is to date unbeatable & 11 months after taking delivery could not \ would not contemplate changing it.
