Very high maintenance

by CruzinQ from on Fri May 10 2013

Great car to drive, extremely high maintenance costs and cost of ownership. If you can buy an extended warranty buy one - you'll make the cost back in months, not years.

Only a good car with warranty

by Albert from san francisco on Mon Mar 04 2013

2008 Q7 makes you very happy with comprehensive warranty but will drives crazy without warranty. Good sides: Extremely roomy for first &second rows. Two full size mattresses can be put in when 2nd & 3rd rows folded down. Overall 16 mpg, more fuel efficient than most full size SUV in 2008. lovely panoramic sunroof. 8 parking sensors and 1 backup camera make the giant no difficult to park at all. The reason I bought it was the front looks so strong. The Quattro all-wheel-drive system live up to its legend, very smooth on bad road and bad weather. Bad sides: has issues one or twice per year, warranty cover them but waste me lots of time to go to dealer and wait for ordered parts every single year. Owning Q7 without warranty must be extremely expensive. Third row seats are for kids and for travel under 20 minutes, not a minivan after all. High floor makes it difficult to get on for seniors without running bars Not sure if Audi improve reliability lately.

Great driving kid mover

by Dragaeran from Atlanta, GA on Fri Oct 20 2017

I have loved this vehicle with the exception of the poor design of the MMI system board being right under the cup holders. I have had to change the main control board 3 times due to minor spills and the rear BOSE amp that controls the entire system shorted out due to the sunroof drain running directly over top of the amp. VERY poor design on Audis part and they are well aware of the issue and basically said too bad your amp needs to be replaced for $1200

Great Car

by Robert from Chicago on Tue May 20 2014

Gus Economos was a great person to work with when trying to purchase a car. He did everything he had to do to make sure I left there with the car I wanted. Thanks Gus for having great customer service.

Great deal...!

by Todd from Houston, TX on Mon Dec 20 2010

Great car - Excellent condition, drives well. Navigator is a bit complicated, but with 7 passengers, ipod interface, sat radio, back-up cameras, parking sensors, 6 CD changer, panoramic moonroof, the car have everything needed for a family to cruise around Houston in class.

Our Take on the 2008 Audi Q7

Editor's note: This review was written in September 2006 about the 4.2 version of the 2007 Audi Q7. Little of substance has changed with this year's model. To see what details are different this year, check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years.

It may seem odd, but Audi, which is partially responsible for popularizing all-wheel drive in passenger cars, only recently joined the SUV crowd with the Q7. The company's devotion to all-wheel drive has been more about onroad performance than offroad acumen, and that focus purportedly carries on in the Q7, which seats up to seven.

Overall, though, the Q7 misses its mark; the driver-machine connection associated with performance vehicles just... Read More
