More niggling problems with our Audis, though we love driving them.
2008 4dr SUV 280-horsepower 3.6L V6

Not good based on reputation
2007 4dr SUV 280-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Needed the oil pump replaced (took a week in the shop) Needed the rear sensors replaced due to corrosion. Brakes, rotars and tires replaced at 30,000 miles. SALES say that I may drive too hard, SERVICE say this is norm. My ACURA MDX went 70K easily.

6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Ours is in the shop bi-monthly for a new electrical or ventilation malfunction.

See above. I also should mention the OEM tires were garbage they wore at 18-20,000 miles. The car eats tires.

4-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Too many issues with the T6 transmission, front end, and rear wheel hub bearings. At 3000 miles had to have front drive axle and ball joints replaced. At 31000 had both rear hub bearings replaced. No transmission replaced, but the history time is comin
