let me start by saying I love my '07 Q7, but this thing has been a nightmare, rattling sunroof, water gushing down from behind the dash onto the floor boards which dealer fixes tells me it was a blocked drain tube (ya know leaves can sometimes plug those up) and two months later it happens all over again, and the kicker my MIL light came on a month a go and its going to cost $5k to get it fixed which was a montha after I spent $2k for new brakes and miscellaneous other stuff, have probably spent $10-12K in maintenance in the last 2 years...I'd own another ....BUT NEVER OUT OF WARRANTY!!

Love it despite reliability

I've owned all sorts of SUV's. I bought this 8 cylinder for my wife because I thought it was the nicest 7 passenger AWD on the market. I still think it is but I'm definitely buying the extended warranty. I've had a leaking sunroof and driver's door. The language on the Multi Media changes occasionally on it's own. All interior lights suddenly stop working then start again after a week or so. Arm rest broke. Could use more power. Is a gas guzzler. I'm a patient owner. I've owned 4 Range Rovers so I'm used to reliability issues. I can live with the Q7's problems because of comfort and features. Love the MMI, panoramic roof and rear dual climate control. Drives like a truck as expected due to its size. If you want better performance, get a smaller SUV.

Still cutting edge

I bought a low miles seven year old Q7 loaded s-line and the design, style, and technology still rivals that of many NEW competitor SUVs. The differences between the 2007 and 2014s are subtle but there is a huge price differential (30k plus). We love the ride, fit/finish, and solidity. I bought from Audi South Austin in Texas and was able to get a factory warranty since they had serviced the car. Parts and Service will no doubt be expensive but this is a lot of car for the price I paid. So far we could not be happier.

Audi Q7-S Line

by from Raleigh, NC on April 13, 2010

I love this vehicle! Power on demand, corners well, technology is amazing. Only shortfall is no iPod attachment in the '07. I'd buy this ten time over and will be looking at Audi's for my (wife) next ...

Another great Audi that SUVs/SAVs should fear

As with all Audi's (we had an A6 first), the Q7 provides overall solid cornering, acceleration, and road manners without too rough of a ride; a perfect top-of-the-line driving blend. This is a particularly true of the Q7 equipped w/the (more attractive) optional double-spoke 20” wheels matched to all-seasons; all-season rubber so that the Quattro AWD functionality is not diminished (summer, sport rubber will negatively impact any AWD and will wear out quickly). The drivers seat position allows near 360 degree visibility which further enhances a spirited driving experience. Sport or manual shift mode shift will rid any mild, initial acceleration lag from zero or at low RPMs, which frankly has been over exaggerated in other 'professional' reviews. Slightly sad :-( the Audi DRG wheel-mounted shifter paddles are only available on the "S"-line, which (in my opinion) comes is less desirable cosmetic interior/exterior selections. (DRG paddles are not necessary, but they are fun.) The rear back-up camera is quite helpful given the 'full-size', but the Audi audible sensor assist should be included at the front bumper (they are in the rear) to allow for tighter maneuverability w/o any fear of collision. The technology package (in-dash 6-disc CD, nav, MMI, Bluetooth, active safety/lighting, the list goes on and on) is quite complete, especially the keyless entry and start (Acura still beats everyone in the Nav department with their real-time satellite based system; but...MDX doesn't even offer a keyless option or the refined German driving experience). The open sky-roof window is fantastic, and makes the interior airy and bright (a must-have option). Optional wireless rear-seat headset entertainment system is attractive and perfect for kids (adult male kids or real kids). The rear captain chairs w/adjustable center console is pure first-class luxury (but a bit less functional). The non-powered, third-row seating is slightly difficult to access and provides only average leg and headroom (keep this in mind only IF you will use these seats regularly, which few ever do).

Driving my 4.2 up to 120 mph was really smooth and quiet. The engine felt like it would do 150 mph no problem. However, I know that it is speed controlled at 130. Everywhere I go I get questioned about this Audi. If you are into cars this is a car person's car.

I own a 4.2 Premium, Q7.

O.K. both of the previous reviewers really know very little about the Q7 and it is obvious by their comments. First, buy a 4.2 V8 if the V6 is too slow for you. However, the V6 is not anything near dog slow compared to other V6 SUV's on the market of this size and weight. My 4.2 V8 is very powerful, 350 hp. with a top end near 150 mph. Second, my dealer installed headrest DVD's. The original headrests are replaced with a much larger pair that matches the leather, stitching, color exactly. Third, if you want a lame SUV by the QX56. It is like most all of the other SUV's on the market. The fit and finish, design, and quality of the Q7 is far above 95% of all SUV's on the market. I have driven most every luxury SUV on the market and after driving the Q7 I had to buy one. I have owned my Q7 for 1 month and one word summarizes it "awesome"!

Perfect Blend of Sport, Space and Luxury

Audi was able to deliver a unique set of features that have been mutually exclusive until now - sporty performance with third-row seating and a near-luxury experience. Ours has the 4.2L V8 and is optioned with the Panorama Roof, 6-Seat layout with rear A/C and heated 2nd row seats, navigation, premium leather and a few minor options. I found the price competitive with BMW and Mercedes - however one does pay for the upmarket materials and V8 performance - so one shouldn't consider it basic transportation. I also reviewed the 2007 Acura MDX, BMW X5 4.4i, Mercedes ML500 and GL500 and the Infiniti FX45. It may prove to be expensive to feed over its lifespan, but I am initially pleased with this purchase. Recommended.

Not fuel efficient by any means, but so much fun to drive. Feels like a sports car. Beautiful interior styling. Lots of room for family when they are in town. Our back-up sensors are messed up but since it's a used car, Im quite sure this was installed aftermarket or something. Will probably just have it shut off, as this vehicle has excellent big mirrors and windows that reduce blind spots to a minimum (you still want to back into parking spaces when you know they are clear of people and children and pets, vs. backing out of a spot, as much as possible. I would recommend getting one with a back-up camera. The NAV on mine does not talk to me, but I can just use my cell phone or my plug in GPS if need be.
