- Anyone own an Audi Q7?
I like big 4×4 motors – end of, so please don’t turn this into a hippy love-in.
Sometime in the next year or so, I may get one in addition to my work pick-up.
Quite fancy a Range Rover and quite nice ones can be had for £15k, but seem to have problems, so I turned my attention to the Q7.
You can get a fully loaded 4.2 V8 diesel in S-Line trim for £15k if you don’t mind it approaching 100k (shouldn’t be an issue with a serviced Audi diesel) – £50k motor, 0-60 in 6.4s, 150mph, high 20’s mpg.
So, anyone had one and thoughts?

I had one for two weeks on loan after my A5 was going in for the n+1th time it had something wrong with it.
I felt it was just a shade too big, like it was Audi looking at the competition and deciding all it had to do to complete was make it a foot larger in every direction, driving wise it was a bit of a blunt instrument, could almost feel the rubber trail the front wheels were leaving on every corner. If you want to feel you’re basically driving a truck though or need the space, it might suit.
Driven ML320/350, they are nice and handle well, and of course the X5, which drives very well. I also really quite like the look of some Grand Cherokees.Posted 4 years agowrightysonMember
My sisters other half has that very motor artist. It is rapid and feels much quicker than the stated figures. He has had several incidents when towing the caravan, actually forgetting its attached, and subsequently setting off a bit quick. Sister not happy when all the pots and pans are everywhere on arriving at destination.Posted 4 years agosquealerMember
We had one up until about a year ago. The 3.0 tdi model.
There’s no way you’ll get high 20’s from the 4.2. Ours did around 23mpg although we did manage to get it up to 28mpg on 130 mile trip once. The demo one we had did 17 for the day we had it although that was mainly urban driving.
Running costs weren’t too bad when we had it, set of tyres for the 21” wheels are about 1k, servicing is reasonable and tax was £490 for ours.
Ours did break a lot though. Windows stopped working, air con stopped working (£2k bill for that but luckily audi paid 90% of it), electric tailgate stopped working and a few other minor faults.
Would I have another? No. Changed it for an 3.0 tdi A6 avant which is much better.Posted 4 years ago
