2011-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

Nothing to tell - had no problems as yet (touch wood). Mpg I feel should be better, what I get and what is said that you should get are 2 seperate figures about 10mpg apart.

Expensive with extras that should come standard for a maufacturer of Audis reputation. A lot of money spent on dealerships instead of on quality and reliability.

Reliability

A debutant in the 2014 Driver Power survey, despite being a 2008 model, Audi’s mid-size SUV shows conflicting qualities. It dropped 48 places in 2015 - from 44th to 92nd - largely because of very poor ride quality ratings from owners, who were also perplexed by the Q5’s high running costs. However, that’s all offset by fantastic build quality, strong performance and excellent practicality ratings – the first of those almost making the top ten.
