Audi still use water pumps with the plastic housing. Eventually the leak. My last Q5 (2010) leaked with only 18k miles on it. The 2016 SQ5 lasted till 48k miles before I smelled coolant. Replace under Warranty. Passenger door handle touch sensor was working intermittently. Replaced after voltage test confirmed it. Drivers side passenger was replaced last year for the same issues. Oils level sensor became erratic. Low oil level showed "add 1 quart oil". After adding 1/2 quart it stated "oil level is high". Hrs later "low oil add 1 qt". Replaced under warranty. Whats wrong with a dipstick? Why change something that never fails? Retro fit is coming!

Panorama Roof creaks while driving on rough roads. Only after I purchased this vehicle did I find that this is a common issue with Audi/VW Pano Roofs. The Dealer did a service which reduced the noise but it's not completely fixed. Passenger side Motor Mount leaked fuild and I mentioned it to the Service Writer when I took the vehicle in for a service.

Vehicle went into Emergency Limp mode, of course it was in the middle of absolutely nowhere USA, New Mexico to be exact. Drove it slowly to a truck stop, shut it down, if it doesn't start then it's a tow truck on Audi. Came out, started it up and all was fine. It ran fine for the balance of the trip. Didn't bother going to the shop, as nothing seemed effected, fuel mileage and power were both fine.
