Audi Q5 Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Audi Q5 reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Audi Q5s with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Audi Q5s that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Audi Q5 lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Audi Q5 has been recently.

Just after I put down my money for European delivery and Consumer Reports "worst reliability" came out for the V6. This web site reassured me about the cause of the report, the plastic housing water pump, that no longer comes on the V6. see full Audi Q5 review
2011 4dr SUV turbocharged 211hp 2.0L I4
8-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Ford Explorers were long a bad brand based on the tire fiasco that was proven, for the most part, was owner created. So have high expectations that it will improve. see full Audi Q5 review
