I have owned a Q7 3.0 TDI SLine since October 2006. My previous car was an Audi A6 1.8T SE and I was contemplating another when I took a test drive in a Q7 mid July 2006. I was delighted with the look and handling/drive so ordered my Q7. I have friends who have BMW X5's, Land Rover Discovery'S and Mercedes ML's and all say they wished they had the Audi Q7. I have driven 17500 miles had one service which was reasonably priced and will change the brake pads in approx 2500 miles time. My only criticism is that I am about to put on the third set of tyres. as with other reviews I have read, it is the same old story, the tyres are all wearing on the outside 20% of the tyre. This cannot be a correct wheel set up, so come on Audi, be truthful to your loyal customers and put out a recall as you did for the boot release problem.
We bought an 07 demo with 6000 miles, at 9,900 we noticed both front tyres were virtually bald! We took it back to Audi who said it was our style of driving, after a few "discussions" the car was took in to check. We were told that the wheel alignment was out and that it was their problem but we would have to pay for the two new tyres! After another discussion they agreed to pay a percentage of the cost. After another discussion they agreed to meet all costs. (my husband is a solicitor!) So I would suggest anyone out there with similar problems, stick to your guns and they will have to deal with the obvious problems. Other than that the car is a real pleasure to own and drive
Low budget airlines eat your eat your heart out, for years now I have shunned driving long distances in favour of air travel etc, but then came the AudiQ7, I took delivery in September 07 having traded in my Porsche Carrera ( strange change you may think ) and I can honestly say thaat of all the cars I have owned over my motoring career which spans some 35 years and 29 cars the Audi Q7 has brought back the joy of driving that I experianced during the early years of getting on the road. This car will have you regretting journey's end, it is the closest I am sure you will come to feeling totally cosseted in a cocoon of luxury and safety.
Next year's annual pilgrimage to southern europe will for the first time in many years be undertaken behind the wheel of the Q7, and not as has been the case of recent years starting with a 2 hour queue at airport security!!
I love my Car- Q7 3.0TDI S-line - 21 inch alloys, Tech +Comms Pack, Adaptive Light, Lane Change Assist, Panorama glass. I have one major problem with this car, the Sat Nav. You can only input 4 characters of a post code, then you must type in intersection, street name etc (makes things tricky when finding an extra urban destination). Apparently this is a UK thing, as we (and our 150£ tom tom's) use granular post codes, and they don’t on the continent. Other than that the car is very slick, with everything working exactly as it should. One tip for someone wanting music is buy the Audi Music interface (200 quid) and get the USB cable (forget IPOD) - couple that with a 60£ hard drive from PC world, and your Q7 can have 200 Gb of music of a hard drive all controlled through the MMI ! The AMI isn’t just IPod - Windows Media, and other formats work too If you buy the S-line (20 inch tyre) or the optional 21 Inch tyre - I would recommend the comfort pack (memory mirrors and key etc) as it is too easy to scratch the rims on curbs. The memory mirrors auto-dip in reverse showing you the curb to avoid this damage. As for the tyres take it to Audi, and they will meet you some of the way towards tyre replacement, they have technical memo circulating around the dealerships from Audi authorising them to meet you some of the way (though they admit no poor design in tyre department) My tyres are fine (but they are 21 inch - not the 20 on S-line or normal 18 on base model)
