Currently driving a BMW X5 I was looking to replace my car for a new X5. However the price of the new car was so much I decided to look at the Q7. Boy am I glad I did! What a car! I test drove a 3.0l TDI SPORTLINE. Hence my new car is due in Mar 08. Very impressed with the specification and presence of the car. Drives like a saloon and muc better equipped than the X5 for the price. I was quoted £48k for a fully loaded spec inc tech and comms pack etc etc.. Managed to haggle a 6% discount which will offset the running costs which can be high. My X5 only does 23mpg and i hope to squeeze 30mpg out of the Q7 based on some other reader reviews. I cant wait untl March!!!!
I have just reached 27,000 miles and am about to fit a third set of tyres! The problem is the old favourite "wearing on the outer edges!!"When the power steering belt snapped whilst doing sixty on the m40 I mentioned this to Audi who said the tyres were under inflated and maybe I drove it hard!I feel that this is the only fly in the ointment as I drove 23,000 miles in a Range Rover and the tyres still looked as if they would do a further 23,000. At an average £150 a corner it is not good enough to be fobbed off with such throw away remarks. My friend has a 4.2 Q7 and at 11,000 is looking at new tyres. Apart from that it is a great vehicle and I would not hesitate to buy another.It is comfortable, practical and averages mid 30's, though I may put some of this down to going from 0 to six points in it within a month!
This is just the world’s best car! I have driven from London right up to Fort William in Scotland at an average 50 MPH and got 40MGP that’s right 40!! The sat nav new every turn and re-routed me around rush hour Glasgow saving me time and money. The boot took all our camping gear and the electric boot a grant bonus when your hands are full. The air suspension coped very well with a rugged road just set it to lift and let it do its work. It was plenty of room for my two boys 12 and 15. The diesel has so much power and is very quite also I got the Limited Edition which was the 20 inch wheels are under £200 each and Heated & electric memory sports front seats are great for my wife's bad back! I’m so glad that I bought this car after moving up from a A6 2.7 S-Line as my son has been nagging me to get it for ages I’m so glad I got it and looking forward to owning it. Just buy this car all the rest and poor choices!
I have had this car for a year. It's a very practical car. On the road, handling is exceptional for a 4x4, although as with all other Audis, the ride and suspension are too firm.
I've had to change the tyres after 20,000 miles due to unusual outer wear, which Audi says is normal. Someone needs to sue them as it's definitely a problem of some sort.
Otherwise, it's a very good car if you like driveability.
