    My car

    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!

    My car

    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.

    My car

    We hear about the ride not being the best. Stick with the 18-inch rims and you will have nothing to complain about.

    Don't get me wrong, it's a 2.5-tonne machine so will never be as good as a prestige saloon, but it's not far off my old Audi A6 Avant.

    Acceleration from the 3.0 TDI engine is more than enough for 90% of drivers and due to the size of the car feels a little quicker than it actually is.

    The auto box is smooth and accurate, though it tends to need a little to get the car off from a standstill.

    Fuel economy for such a big vehicle is good: I average 29mpg and that hasn't included any long motorway runs.

    My only gripes - and they are small - concern storage. It's great for bottles etc, but in this ever-increasing world of DVDs and hand-held games, there is only one drawer under the driver's seat to hide things inside the car. Why not another under the passenger seat, or the rear seats, where they would be more useful?

    Secondly, when you pull the rear parcel shelf sheet over, it conflicts with the seat belts for the 3rd row of seats. A slight modification to their positioning would have left the shelf clear of them.

    As it is, the shelf either pops up at each side, leaving an area open for eyes to see into the boot space, or folds down looking unsightly.

    Don't let this put you off the car. You will know it is the best car you have ever driven should you buy one and with great residuals compared to many vehicles, it's worth every penny.

    My car

    I have owned from new a Q7. I have done 80,000 miles and been told that all the tyres will need replacement soon. The offside of both front tyres are almost worn through.

    Audi tell me this is not unreasonable yet they have a manufacturer release on the Q7 tyre problem saying up to 3100 miles per tyre is to be expected.

    My wife has a range rover with 33,000 miles from new all the tyres have 50% left. Surely there may be a manufacturing problem.
