    My car

    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.

    My car

    I was wondering as I am planning to buy a 2007 model from an AUDI dealer and was told today that the problem with the tyres has been solved and a recall has been made. Has anyone else heard this as this is the only thing stopping me from buying this car?

    Regards Paul

    Audi KNOW there is a tyre wear problem, they have a policy to deal with it - if you complain before 10k miles, they will replace tyres FREE. More miles, less contribution, over 15k is zero.

    I love the car, but am very upset with Audi's customer service on this topic - it warrants a recall to all owners.

    The rest of it it beautifully put to!ether and looks fantastic, can't fault it apart from the tyre issue and Audi's lack of information on that at point of purchase and since....

    My car

    I have a 4.2 V8 Q7 2007. I also had the problem with tyre wear but have solved the problem by ensuring that the tyre pressures are spot on what it says in the book, since then I have had no probs. The pressures seem very high and are a pain when going off road but all in all the Q7 is a great car. The only problem is that I can't get the Diesel Version in the UAE as the diesel is very high sulphur and would wreck the engine in a matter of weeks.
