Review: Audi Q7 (2006 – 2015)


High quality interior. Spacious. Excellent security rating. Strong 3.0 TDI engine.

Rearmost seats tight for adults. Big size can make it tricky to manoeuvre. 21 inch wheels are easily damaged and require expensive tyre changes.

High mileage cars - will they go on forever?

I work abroad quite a bit and I am considering buying a high mileage Audi Q7, the cars I have looked at are in excellent condition with full service histories, but have high mileage. Some are at 100,000 - 160,000 miles. Would I be buying a maintenance nightmare or do these things go on forever?
No, they don't go on forever and the high cost of fixing them is reflected in the prices asked. You could be in for a lot of very expensive replacement parts, and won't get the money back on resale.
