Dependable Car ?

Ask the People Who Own One:

2009 - 2017 Audi Q5

Considering purchase of 2014 Q5, low miles, no warranty left, can I depend on this car ? Or are these cars in the repair shop a lot ?

Great choice! Mine had an issue with burning oil. I got new rings and pistons under a factory fix program and it was pretty much like a new engine. Never had any reliablity issues beyond that - but they are EXPENSIVE to maintain properly. I had a 2011 model, and I drive it until February of last year. One of the best cars I've ever had. I doubt you'd have much trouble with it, and the 2014 models didn't have the same oil issue. Good luck!

Not entirely comparable, I have a 2014 Diesel model. This did have a major fuel fault fixed under warranty but otherwise it has been an excellent choice. It drives remarkably well and I would highly recommend.

Thanks to both of you for the recomendations.

What can I expect to be charged for routine maintenance ?

Low milage 2014 2.0T are around $30K or $36K for 3.0T. That would give you one year left on warranty unless you went CPO which extends the warranty.

But for $31K or $16,000 MSRP the Buick Envision Prem l is a better deal with more features and newer design than the older Q5.

Here ya go.

Edmunds

I would be cautious about buying one of these. No German car is considered dependable unless you pick out individual cars. That is what Lexus, Acura, and new Buicks are for.
