Love it!

The interior is gorgeous and I love all of the fun “toys”! I drove everything from the BMW X5 to the Lincoln Aviator and this was my favorite car to drive. It’s amazing!

4.6

Most reliable car would buy it again

This car is perfect for our needs. It is reliable and extremely road worthy. It performs very well off road. It is also great on the highway.

Brand new lease -- so far it's amazing

This car is beautiful, safe, and comfortable. I haven't driven an SUV in over 6 years and missed it. This Q5 sold me! It is a pleasure to drive.

First SUV

The car is fun to drive but has slight hesitation that it seems Im the one that notices it. Its only been a few days since I got it. Im sure I’ll get used to it.

Great driving! Interior needs more planning

Love love love driving this car. It drives like a much smaller vehicle. Very responsive. The interior design could be better... cup holders! a disaster... too far back and block the glove compartment, (you must move all cups before opening the compartment. ) Not enough storage. Runs on premium. Maybe would have preferred a hybrid.

Worst reliable SUV I owned

I purchased a brand new 2021 Audi Q5 in November 2020. 4 months later, wires on the bottom of the SUV cut into pieces in 4 different locations and the coolant start leaking. All the dashboard lights are lit on. The SUV wasn't functional. When I talked to the dealer, they told me to put a claim on the insurance to fix the troubles. Worst SUV, Never buy this one.Dealer told that same thing happened to these SUVs before. They did not attempt to resolve these issues and selling this SUVs.When we approached, they wash their hands. 1

Fun to drive SUV!

Not as much storage as my AcuraMDX, but more peppy and fun to drive! Back cargo space a little smaller, but still can get most things in from groceries and Home Depot. Firm seats and heavy doors taking time to get used to. Same with gear shift - somehow German engineering thinks that pushing the shift Forward is how you should put the car in Reverse, and vice versa? Acura had more pockets for storage all over, Audi put tools for the spare under the floor in the hatch, but then filled everything up with foam. MDX has nice storage under the back floor and larger arm rest storage for gloves, change, gum, tools. But overall, the Audi is a LOT of fun to drive and the MDX was more cushy... Both really nice vehicles!

Really Enjoying It

Previously I drove a Cadillac sedan but having the Q5 has improved my life. Entry and exit are smooth and the acceleration is powerful. The interior shows attention to detail. The Bose system makes the music sound tremendous. I don't think I'll be going back to a sedan again.
