Audi Q5 Reliability and Durability: Pros

2009 4dr SUV 270-horsepower 3.2L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The 2009 Q5 is my wife's car. I drive it occasionally, we have 42,200 miles on the car. It has proven to be the best car we have owned having only one a/c issue last summer causing the a/c to stop working. We had the car repaired at the local Audi dealer. We bought the car new, ordering it from a dealer, took delivery of the car and have loved the car ever since. My wife will not trade the car. It drives great, steering and body is so firm and it's like driving a race car. Plenty of power, drives wonderfully on the interstates, I just can't find anything wrong. Don't understand how the 2009 reliability is so low. The car has never failed to start take us where we want, brings us home.
