Audi Q7 SUV (2006-2015): owner reviews

"The Audi Q7 is a vast SUV with seven seats and plenty of kerb appeal, but it feels dated and its four-star safety score isn't on par with more modern rivals."

This car has had the service light on for almost 2 years. It has been in the dealer at least 12 times. I just got it back from an Ad Blue problem, and now the VOX sensors need replacing. Every time it costs many thousands of dollars. Very poor reliablitiy.

Great build quality, only thing that seems a problem is it gets through tyres quite quickly.

The best car we've had, but it really is too big for uk roads, despite that though, comparing to similar models it's still better than merc & bmw in my opinion.

Very comfortable, good adjustable height and rake seats, heated seats, good towing vehicle, pulls trailer complete with 2 horses and various tack and accessories needed effortlessly, and pretty good on mpg when towing. Carries 7 passengers with ease and when only up to 5 passengers plenty of room in boot for lots of luggage or 2 dogs (one is a Great Dane)

Spare parts are expensive but not needed often so not really a problem. Road tax quite heavy but is the same as any other vehicle of similar size

Eats the diesel is very comfortable and has everything you need. Seats are very easy to make into 7 seats. It's just a little bit big.
