great car, i drove loads of 4 x 4 and people carriers before getting my q7. late 08 just two weeks old but great to own and drive. everyone said whos been in it, what a fantastic ride, kids love the loud cd player and black windows.alway leaves me smiling. if you need a big car with bags of room and travel loads of miles this is the car for you, miles are effortless and i just don,t want to get out.!!
The best car I have ever owned. Period. People knock it for poor fuel economy but I have veraged 28MPG over the last 12 months and 29000 miles - not bad for a mixture of A,B,Motorway and central London. Around town is 22MPG ish but a relaxed motorway run goes up to 34MPG. As a tip try driving in manual mode on A roads as it improves economy no end. If you want 40MPG+ dont buy a big bus like this. Tyres - yes I have had to replace them, the first set of fronts went at 12K and were replaced like for like with goodyears. They went again at 28K but have now been replaced with a set of Generals (yankee SUV tyre on the recommendation of my local independent tyre fitter). I put a pair of these on the rear at 15K and they are still going strong at 30K so the fronts should fair the same way. As others have said , make sure the PSI is correct to aid long life.
Overall the car is excellent, does what it says on the tin -quick, comfortable and more space than you could ever need. .. Still is a bu**er to park in some multistoreys though!
I purchased this vehicle and after 3 weeks it had an engine failure. It was recovered to a Audi Dealership where it took approx 3 weeks to find out what was wrong with it. Audi customer services was involved and their involvement was very poor. After my experience i rejected this vehicle on the basis that after spending the good part of £50000 i am not prepared to accept this vehicle. Now i tried communicating my rights as a customer and the attitude of Audi was "tough, this is life and they tried giving me the waffle of warranty." After my experience i am devastated with the way i have been treated. A company of such high repute and eager to take my sale, however their after sales service is shocking, based on my experience Audi told me im not entitled as a customer to a refund or an exchange. What i ask what car is "where is my legal standing in this, what are my rights, can i demand a full refund?"
I owned a Q7 for about a year, lovely car, no where as big to drive as people think, safe, secure and well made, customer service was good, BUT, tyre wear in only 7000 miles all the tyres were finished, and even though Audi replaced FREE I decided time to go, afterall, I would need atleast 2 sets of tyres a year, Road tax would soon be £455 a year and I was only getting 20-23 MPG on a school run of 30 miles (car was the 3.0 TDI), so I took a 10k hit in one year and sold the car. After owning Jags, Astons, Ferrari's, Porsche, Lexus SUV's and Land Rovers, I can say it was the best built car, but the tyre wear is going to cost Audi big time, fix teh issue or lose clients by the bucket, don't buy one yet! Wait for a fix, I still love Audi and brought the A3 TDI 170 BHP.
