Review: the Audi Q7 2017

The Audi Q7 came later than Touareg and Cayenne. And this is an advantage today. The four-wheel drive is reliable and hardly makes any problems.
The prices are dropping

On request there was a third row of seats. The loader space is not high, but it is two meters long.

The late-borns of a family are often better off. The great brethren have already cleared many paths, and the nest-chick then profits from them. This is also the case with the three all-wheel brothers from the Volkswagen Group. In 2002 VW Touareg and Porsche Cayenne came together on the same ground with plenty of identical technology - and had to cure a lot of children's illnesses in their first years. The Q7 also had much the same technology and was also built in Bratislava. It was not until the end of 2005 that it got even heavier and even bigger: 15 centimeters more wheelbase, 30 centimeters more outside than VW and Porsche. This not only provides space for a luggage compartment between 1.15 and two meters in length, but also for a third row of seats (available for a surcharge). That is good enough for the knee and head but only for people up to about 1.60 meters body size. For the small handball team it is enough.

Tires, chassis and brake wear very quickly
The grace of the late birth saved the Audi Q7 from the worst electronic quarrels of his brothers. While VW Touareg and Porsche Cayenne were already replaced by their second generation in 2010, the Audi Q7 was five years longer in the first generation. Only since autumn 2015, the successor type has rolled off the belt by about 300 kilograms of reduced weight due to aluminum / steel mixed construction. The high weight indeed plagues various assemblies of the first Q7 generation. The front tires often do not last longer than 20,000 kilometers, the brakes rarely exceed 50,000. Worn wheel suspensions from 125,000 km are often a reason for a complaint at the main investigation, steering gear with too much play from 175,000 kilometers. And yet the Q7 as a whole can be considered as a useful tool. Clearly, maintenance costs are high on the brakes due to unfavorable insurance classes and expensive wear repairs.

But the really expensive technology holds. Numerous specimens have passed 300,000 kilometers and more with the first engine and the first automatic transmission. Genuine breakdowns and recumbents are very rare, even at high mileage. Only the owners of the very early Q7 3.0 TDI of the years 2006 and 2007 (233 hp) complain about problems with the automatic transmission. It stops at an advanced kilometer due to hard shifting. On the other hand, sometimes a simple change of gearbox helps, sometimes a new control unit at the gearbox, sometimes also only a new transmission for several thousand euro.

The prices are dropping

Interior without pomp and glitter. The materials do not hold, only the soft lacquer of the switches. For today's conditions, the screen is small.
Something anger threatens every now and then by electrical and electronic problems. Misfires in the control devices, but especially striking extras, stress the nerves and patience of the owner. Careful Q7 prospects therefore keep an eye out for a copy with as few as possible defect-repelling extras. So, if possible, no air suspension, whose sensors and electronic control do not always work without problems; no keyless access, whose sensors around the car do not have eternal life; no glass sliding roof, which is sometimes jammed and leaking; no auxiliary heating, which eats too much battery capacity before starting the engine; no xenon headlights, which have to be brought back to correct lighting in case of defects with much more money than conventional halogen light.

Weak points and practice tips

Weak points 1

The owners earlier in Q7 of 2006 and 2007 (16 percent) are significantly less satisfied. They complain about automatic problems, heavily polluting side windows, fast wearing brakes and tires, as well as electronics bangs. Worn wheel suspensions and steering gear (8 percent) are available only at high speeds of 125,000 kilometers.


However, according to the Q7 owners, the biggest inconvenience is the high maintenance costs. Car tax and insurance premiums are paid particularly reluctantly. The Audi workshops are better off. 87 per cent of the contractors receive good and very good marks - an above-average figure. And this despite high costs. For a large inspection, an average of 690 euros is at the bottom of the bill. When asking about the next car, the Audi dealerships can look forward to good deals. It seems as if the Q7 owners have waited almost longingly for the new model. Twelve percent say they have already ordered the Q7 II. A further 21 percent want to follow the initial customers next year, 19 percent to the smaller Q5 change. Brand changers prefer to take the Porsche Cayenne (18 percent). So the money remains among brothers on NirroReviews.

Technical Overview - not as scary

Each car must periodically undergo technical tests. It is an absolute necessity to get another stamp in the registration. So keep an eye on the date of the next visit. Did you know, however, how it should look like a typical overview? Do not be fooled and make sure that the service was performed comprehensively. Only then will you be sure that your car is working one hundred percent.



If you just bought a car in the living room, you do not have to worry about technical studies - have to be carried out after three years from the date of first registration. Another review takes place two years after the first, and again every year. The situation is different in the case of cars with gas installation - even if they are new, have to undergo testing each year.

Most of the drivers does not like technical inspection of vehicles - they are associated rather negatively. We fear that in the course of the study are found numerous faults, resulting not get the required stamps. One should not, however, look at the issue in this way. The main task of the technical review of the car is, after ensuring the safety of the driver and passengers. Fault detected in vehicle inspection station can prevent serious accidents in the future and it is worth remembering.

What happens if you missed the review date? You should immediately go to the site to get a stamp. If you meet traffic control, police stopped the registration certificate, and you will receive a receipt for seven days - the time you need to conduct a study of the car in the regional control station. On the connivance of law enforcement officers you can only count up to several days in case of missing the deadline - but everything depends on the particular officer. After the test with positive results receive a certificate valid for one month, from which you can recover your registration card. It is worth remembering, because the car without a valid technical inspection, which took part in a collision or accident, as a rule, is considered the one that contributed to the event (even if everything proves the guilt of another driver). You can then forget about compensation from the insurance policy.

What is the technical examination of a vehicle control station? First, it is checked body - diagnostician will look headlights and windshield. Any cracks or lack of transparency associated with a negative outcome of the review. While the burned out light bulbs must be replaced on the spot. Station worker can also attach themselves to hard rusty bodywork. Then checked by rolls brakes and on a shaker play in suspension and steering. Tires are another point of control - treads on the same axis must be identical. Excessive consumption is associated with a failure of the review. Auto must also undergo an analysis flue gas leakage control and exhaust system. At the end of the diagnostic check safety features such as seat belts, wipers, or the horn.

What if the vehicle fails the test? In this case, you will get a list of faults and you'll have 14 days to repair. Then you return to the vehicle inspection stations and again undergo the procedure - but if you go back to the same proven to be only items that have not undergone the review.

Friend has some luck

A little while back I was helping some friends who work for Obslimted in Southall to buy a house, in the borough of Ealing, they want to buy in the Southall location, not for me, but we-all have different taste. I asked a few work colleagues who work for pins property if they had any knowledge of any below market value property.

It seems we were in luck, we came across a person who was looking-for a fast house sale and he had only  recently recently modernised the home with the likes of Vaillant in London and Bosh as well as modernised the floors in every room. We went to visit the home in Southall and I was very surprised at its high standard.

We knew the homeowner was looking for a cash buyer but he did not want to drop his price a long way below the market value of the property in Southall. As my friend immediately fell in love with the house which was located on what we refer to as a desirable street to live on, it is in a cul de sac and very few people live on the street and all the houses on the street are fully detached, you really could not ask for much more.

Being hasty to purchase house can work against you, but sometimes things can happen fast and if you’ve the money it’s a bonus, in my friends case he want to buy a property in this area, his second choice was somewhere in Greenford. Time-and-patience in most cases pays off but so does luck!
