One of the best cars I've owned
I bought a used 2015 Audi Q7 about 8 months ago, and love it.
It has 4WD, 4 wheel steering and air suspension, and is one of the most comfortable cars I've ever driven.
I drove it from Sydney to Brisbane, and in the wet on the highway at 110km/h it's incredibly stable. Also got 6.5l/100km which is outstanding for a 200kw 2.5 tonne diesel.
It's powerful and also super quiet which is a pleasant surprise, and the interior is a lovely place to be.
It tows my caravan with ease (that's the reason I bought it), and the virtual cockpit is an awesome ...
Purchased in February 2019 for $70,000.00.
What a great choice
Well i have just returned from 7000klm trip towing 3.2t caravan to Qld got ecm tune from veloce clayton great bloke excellent job could not believe how well car performed. Best fuel figures for 220k 10.3lt 100 worst 13.9lt 100 everything else performed terrific. What a great car Audi Q7.

Excellent..no other words match....
A great family car that provide the upmost comfort and luxury. I love this car as it is quite, comfortable, spacious and dynamic. Never forget to add the dynamic suspension and ambient lighting option as it can make a huge difference in your experience and comfort. If you are in doubt please drive a car with and without dynamic suspension and feel the difference.

This is a great family car, i have a mustang and my wife uses the Q7, or when we are together we use this. As a family car is has plenty of room, very economical and safe. It's very ease to drive, when we first got it, i likened it to driving a cloud.
Great car, but???
Audi Q7 traded in 8 year old car but what a big change in technology cannot fault audi so far 4mths. Except one big problem that shows audi do not care about its customers no safety features in navigation speed red light school zones etc etc first time I have had a car in last 15 years with these features missing big mistake for 21 century.

Best car ever!!!
We owned Audi Q7 over 2 years now. Excellent condition. Other than regular servicing & changing tire we did not spent even 1 single cent on other kinds of repairs etc. Very comfortable for long drive. Love this car. Would love to recommend Audi Q7 if you are looking to buy new car.

The best car I have ever had
First part - about Audi Dealership:
I spoke to a few but went to only 2 Audi Dealerships. Second one was Audi Five Dock in Sydney. I was astounded by their knowledge in the car. I met with Nadim and he helped me to finalise a car and also told me that the type of finance I was looking for, they can help. Then I met with Christian. What a wonderful man! He helped me with a difficult finance and now I am driving my Audi Q7! Thanks Audi Five Dock.
Second part - about Audi Q7:
My car is 200KW, with sunroof, Assistance Package, 21 inch wheel. Thi...

Great Family Car that delivers Performance
I took the plunge to purchase a base model 160kw no options version 2016 Q7 in June 2016 after evaluating various options such as, the Volvo XC 90 a top range Mazda CX 9, Land Rover Discovery and BMW X5. One must have was 7 seat option that pretty much cut the X5 out, and the Mercedes only had 7 seats when you got to the GLE which blew the budget some what. As another test i drove the Nissan Pathfinder, which was terrible for me, as i hated the slippery CVT transmission, YUK and terrible driving dynamics.
I am a guy that enjoys good driving ...dynamics coupled with functionality, and i must say the Q7 left them all for dead with respect to driving dynamics. The 7 seats with power up and down is a breeze to use which still leaves enough room on the boot for a pram and other stuff. The functionality of the MMI, phone, bluetooth, sat nav are easy and very intuitive, its hard to fault besides the voice control, sometimes it just doesn't understand me. The sound system is great for a base model and the 160kw engine is very perky, its really hard to pick the difference with performance against the 200kw engine. I would have like the 200kw but the budget didn't allow it. I usually put this car into corners a bit hard at times just because i like it, and the handling is excellent for a car this size. Look its not like putting a GTI into a corner but for what it is it left avery other SUV for dead with cornering and driving stability with the base model steel springs. Very impressive. Only negative in handling is very slight turbo lag at low speed. However when you compare the strength of this engine 3.0L Turbo diesel 500Nm to the other SUV's i mentioned especially the Volvo, i found that the Q7 engine performs with ease, where the 4cyl Volvo went OK but it felt like it was pushing a 4cyl engine for a SUV. As far as cabin comfort well its great, sometimes you don't even know the engine is running its that quiet, and the family love it for long drives as its roomy and quite.
Never anything else
I love my car and everyone who knows me will know that I don't let ANYONE else drive it!
It fits all the kids in and makes school drop offs so easy in the morning! haha! It is smooth and as an automatic driver I find it so easy to drive.
Nice, comfortable and smooth
Nice car and so smooth and quiet for a diesel. Have the 160kw model plus sunroof, 360 camera, assist package and 20 inch wheels. Plenty of sensors and self parking is great for a big car. There's plenty of power. So far all good with 5000km. Love the mobile wifi and apple CarPlay is handy. It remembers my seat setting and automatically adjust when I entered if it was changed prior.
The only drawback - 3rd row seats not that big. Lifting the 2nd row ito enter 3rd row is hard - especially for kids to lift and put back down. Lifting the 3rd is easy - just press the button.
Love this car
Just picked up a used 2010 Q7 for my wife and we are loving it - we can get 3 bigger car seats across the middle row and the rear seats are actually usable for a 7 seat SUV
The 3.0 TDI engine is powerful, but quite quiet on the road and the MMI system is easy to use, overall it's a great package and a stunning looking vehicle (in my opinion anyway!)
Would highly recommend to anyone with a growing family
Best Car inHave Ever Driven
The quality of the Q7 is far better then the top of the line BMW or Mercedes SUV at 20 to 30 percent less cost.
Amazing model the 2016 Q7 is simply amazing . The leather is real and thick .The drive is tight and responsive . The driving control is precise .

Perfect Family Car
If you're a fan of technology and safety this car MY2017 is the perfect one, worth it paying for this range type of car. Few things I have experienced:
-5.9L/100km ($70 worth diesel 1 way Brisbane to Sydney)
-Perfect safety features that you can only imagine but this car has got the most of it
-It's true!! Compact outside and rooooomy inside
-Auto hi beam lights perfect for long drive
Secure, Comfortable and 4.2 Litre V8 Power with Fuel Efficiency
Great car - the ride is comfortable, and for an SUV, you don't feel like you are driving a tank, very little body roll and very responsive vehicle. The one thing I don't like too much about this Audi is the Multimedia input for your iPhone, which needs to be done via a cable and the TMC does not work in Australia.
Best most reliable I have owned
Bought second hand for $38000. Have owned it over 3 years. Bought with faulty emissions control system, this has not affected the performance (amazing), or fuel efficiency, so I have just ignored it with no further issues. Adjustable air suspension is reliable, comfortable and handy when hooking up my full sized van. If you drive it very hard your tyres will wear out quickly. I get 45000 out of a set. I do drive hard as I frequently need to overtake B doubles, which it does with ease. The climate control fan stopped working, 185 000 klm...s so far. I have not changed the brake pads yet ( over 110 000 klms since purchased). 85% of my driving is highway. I drive with cruise control set at 100 km/hr towing my big van...you don't even know it is there and never gets below 95km/hr. On the flat it returns 15litres/100 klms towing the van at 100km/hr. I frequently pass the 200 series landcruiser when we both tow vans. I will not sell this vehicle as it will be kept for my son or daughter. I would love to buy the SQ7 as my long term vehicle. I am surprised at its reliability, better than new Holden cruise (diesel), 307 Peugeot diesel, Holden Caprice (WK bought s/hand), 2008 Toyota Prado (diesel).
I love driving my Q7
Fantastic ride and handling, V8 has masses of power(for such a big car). I love driving it.
Dislike the rubber coated buttons and trim, as when it tears it looks unsightly and difficult to replace.
Reliability has been great, very heavy on the fuel....but it's a V8 what do you expect
Love my Q 7
I have had my Q7 tubo 3lt diesel for just on 5 years
I cannot fault it mechanics. I have been through some tough times business wise an I am hopless at getting it serviced at the best of times. From 15000km to 72000km it didnt get serviced at all and it didnt miss a beat. I dont recommend this but it was one way to keep the servicing cost down LOL. The mechanic said I have lucky and apart from brakes and discs done with the usual servicing and $3k later all was good. That was my first brake replacement as well. I have now done approx 120000k...
Magnificent Piece of Kit
Purchased a 2014 Q7 4.2 TDI, just put 5000ks on the car. No idea where the tyre issues come from, I cant see any wear so far and we've done a bit of towing (fitted with 295/35/21 P Zeros). The car is fabulous to drive, gobbles up klms like nothing Ive driven before (including the MB GL350 it replaced), full tank of 100 Litres got us from Sydney to Gold Coast with a quarter tank left! finally filled up at 1120ks and it took 83L not bad for a 2.5ton Vehicle. Ride is superb, quiet, pulls like a Mac truck and corners like no other large SUV. So far Everything on the car has been perfect and Audi Sydney have to be commended for service. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Love the drive
Recently purchased a Q7 to drive clients for work and haven't looked back. As I purchased the vehicle second hand with low K's I saved a substantial amount of money on a fully optioned luxury vehicle. Its a pleasure to drive and so far has sold me on Audi over all other vehicles I have owned.
Comfort and driving experience
Servicing with Audi $$$$$
