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.

Exactly the same problem with jerking and stalling

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.

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!

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.

Q5

We purchased Q5 Quattro diesel sports in January. I have big concerns re safety, the car auto safety brakes activate all the time out of the blue, putting me in dangerous situations. 1.As I was driving along a windy road they reacted towards a cyclist on the other side of the road 2. when I was turning right off a main road. 3. Backing out of the drive way 4. Changing lanes.
It’s happened multiple times on all the above situations.
As a result I’ve had whiplash and I’ve become very anxious because I never know when this braking system will kick in causing a major accident. I’m only grateful that my grandchildren haven’t been in the car during one of these incidents.
This is a major problem!

I'm not sure how the TFSI models are as I have the 3.0TDi. However, I have had a 2.0TFSI Quattro A3 that I enjoyed very much. My only gripe with Audi these days is the cost of servicing and their choice in 3rd party Extended Warranty providers. I purchased a extended warranty for mine and its not worked out so well. I also have had a few issues with my transmission. Some good things....it's comfortable, powerful enough, and has a good road presence. The lights are great at night, seats are quite supportive, and the paddles are pretty responsive. I would definitely get a Q5 over a BMW X3.
