• Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    To an environmentalist it says 'The Devil'. Actually though, it is not bad on fuel consumption and it really says 'family man with an appreciation of quality'

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Everybody is bowled over by the dimensions but all LOVE the car inside and out. The interior is different class to everything else on the market. Trust me.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes - and this is the engine to go for unless you have deep pockets or like racing other cars. Quality and style personified.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Another Q7!

    Did you buy this car new?


    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    May 2007

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Not really - there are not a lot of discounts at present as there are only ex-demo cars on the market and the selling margins are small.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Needed additional space to accomodate a new family addition

    What was the dealer like?

    Awful. Forgot to supply the load management kit including the rear parcel shelf! Had to make a formal complaint to Audi before I got it sorted out.

  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    It's composed, extremely refined and it has lots of torque for easy overtaking. The steering is nicely weighted and there is hardly any body roll in corners. Acceleration is very good in sport mode! Brakes are a little vague though and the low speed ride is not great in the back seats.

    What's it like to park?

    Front and rear sensors (technology pack) are essential. Rear visibility is restricted by a sloping roof and wide rear pillars. However, the easy steering and parking computer make it bearable for such an enormous beast!

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Only an LED bulb failure on a footwell light.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Enormous storage space and legroom, an electric tailgate, adjustable load height, folding/split seats, loads of storage bins etc etc.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    The Sat Nav system is excellent and the heated electric memory seats/mirrors/column are fantastic. Go for the comfort pack!!
