Audi Q5 opinions please

Recommended Posts

Hi my partner is after an Audi Q5 as a replacement car. Are there any of the Pigeon Watch community who have experience, good or bad of this particular beast? Looking at the 2.0tdi preferably and any help/advise appreciated.

Thanks 

Tom

Boss has one as a company car , petrol-version , nice car , nice to drive wouldn’t be my cup of tea as an suv or even soft off reader , interior for me is very unlike Audi , plasticky doesn’t have that luxury feel to it considering cost , think it’s a bit of a marmite model , love it or hate it

I’ve got the 2013 model with the v6 Diesel engine. The cabin is a nice place to be, I feel it’s better than the newer version, the newer Q5 feels cheap inside. 
it’s not cheap to run if you go main dealer for work I.e £250 for front brake pads fitted! The autogearbox can be a little Delicate on some, but not had trouble with mine, yet! The car isn’t that big inside, if you’re much over 6foot it can feel a bit cramped in the front.

I’m on my second diesel SQ5 (3 years a piece) and rate it as ‘the’ do all car.

I’ve thrashed both like the proverbial ginger step child and neither has missed a beat.

I’d get another tomorrow but they don’t make the diesel one any more.

Indeed, I’m due for a change next March and I’ve no idea what to get although I’ve seen some SQ7’s on super low offers. If Boris gets in there’s an M5 Competition itch that needs a scratch but if Corbyn gets in I’ll be looking at a Prius, which will be handy for the second job I’ll be needing.

If you get one let us know what it's like, if it wasn't for two toddlers that lay claim to any spare cash that would be sat on my drive way!

Update! We bought a 2012 Q5 S line 170bhp tdi with all the bells and whistles yesterday and love it so far! 
thanks
