Too many problems

published

I have had my Audi Q5 for 4 years now. After a few months of driving it, it was jerking on reverse and if you step on it on a highway, the car jerks. There is something wrong with the gear changing and the gearbox. I have brought it back to Audi 1/2 doz times and they were not able to find the fault. Wasting my time going back and forth trying to fix this problem. I had the same problem with my Audi A3 Cabriolet. I could not get rid of it fast enough.
All for looks for too many problems

2010 Q5 stalling when cold

published

Purchased a Q5 in 2010. Over the last year the change down from 2nd to 1st gear is severe; like a jolt. In the last month the car has been stalling the engine when changing down. Would any know what the problem is and solution?
Overall I've been very happy with the car and would not hesitate to purchase another Audi.

Audi Q5 2009 just blew up

published

Audi sucks Audi Australia are worse again. Bought my Q5 4 years ago for $75,000 it is worth $0 today. I have had various problems with this car and through out the warranty period and I got the same treatment from Audi Australia where they were very reluctant to assist under warranty even. Now it is sitting at Audi Newcastle with a blown engine and a $10,000 price tag for repairs I will never buy an Audi ever again.

I purchased my Q5 2.0 TDI when it first released in Australia 2009. I used to drive Pajero, so Q5 is kind of small for me. Beautiful driving experience, good handling and good soundproof (you wouldn't hear diesel engine noise in the car at all) Only disappointment I found is diesel engine seems has acceleration delay, you won't get respond after 2-3 second. No major problem for me, Audi Gold Coast is an excellent dealership, they take care of any issue and concern immediately. Fuel consumption for my car is around 9.9L/100Km, I only drive around locally to pick kids up from school and do grocery shopping :)
Interior comfort, reliable, compact.

Sports mode hold gears a tad to long in deceleration . Overall good package . I would def recommend this car .
Fuel economy , excellent to drive

VWs and Audi do have grabbing brakes normally. Seems they cant be adjusted much! But yours sound a worry. A letter from a lawyer usually gets things moving! To both Audi and HQ. throw everything at em!

Dream Machine

This is the most beautiful car I have ever driven. From the driver's seat, the large front window gives the impression you are in a helicopter. No key required to start - just push button (after using alarm to enter car). Push button handbrake! Front and rear car sensers making parking simple. Blue tooth connects to phone, including phone book. Nav man. Beautiful interior. Big boot space. Really considerate fit out. Love, love, love it!
Running on diesel - incredibly economic (I hate going to the petrol station, so I'm very happy).
Has been sluggish at the start of early mornings in Melbourne's freezing winter weather.

Nice machine but waiting list is 9 months + for goodness sake.
Audi don't tell you THAT when you put down the deposit.
Attention to detail.Quality of fittings.Dual clutch Gearbox.Adaptive cruise control is fantastic.Side assist.Head lights.
Price.Driver's seat keeps creaking when you brake.Can't close boot with remote.Radio can't be turned off so always comes on when you start the car.Nav out of date.Back seats don't move back to upright position electrically like cheap Nissan SUVs.

Hi everyone, could anyone tell me how much you paid for your timing belt/chain to be replaced at 90,000km or 180,000km, and if you got it done at Audi service centre or an independent mechanic.

Thank you!
