  • A 1 Thats our Q5 - 2016 Audi Q5

    Every category is 5 star except a USB port. We have owned the Q5 for 9 months, great vehicle! Couldn't be happier. As I noted prior a 2016 Q5 sh have had a USB. However, purchasing an adapter is not a "big deal"....

  • Great SUV! - 2016 Audi Q5

    We bought the 2016 3.0 TDI prestige package with all options and we are very happy with the choice we made. Fuel economy is very good and the handling is excellent. The only minor inconveniences are that it lacks USB ports and the color navigation screen is not touch screen which makes it somewhat cumbersome. Other then that a very confrontable ride for an SUV.

    Vault like build quality, feels like driving an elegant and maneuverable mini-tank on the road!

    Beautiful paperweight for the first four weeks I owned it. Timing shaft tensioner failed, then second time in it was the camshaft that failed. Audi refused buyback saying basically "too bad."

  • Liked my 2014 Q5 so much - I leased another! - 2016 Audi Q5
    By -

    I had a 2014 Q5 Premium Plus 2.0 lease that was up for renewal recently. In over 30 years of leasing vehicles I've NEVER leased the same vehicle twice as every one of them seemed to have some quirk or flaw that made me want to try something different. However, in this case I ended up leasing the a newer version of the exact same Q5. Why? because I test drove everything else out there and could not bear to part with the Q5. Superb all around car and hands down the best engines on the road today. After 36K miles on the 2014, zero flaws and the exterior and interior still look it came off the showroom. My new 2016 is even better, if that's possible. There is a reason this SUV consistently gets 5 star ratings.

  • I left my Lexus for an Audi Q5 - 2016 Audi Q5
    By -

    After 15 years with my beloved Lexus RX300, which I passed to my daughter, it was time for a new ride. I obviously adored my Lexus, but the new RX is huge, and the NX was a good size but had nasty yellowish pleather interior, boring handling and that awful spindle grill. Instead I chose the Audi Q5 in Cuvee silver with Chestnut interior. Gorgeous! It's appearance makes my heart go pitter-pat, and it is SO much fun to drive. My only complaint is the infotainment stuff. Too granny sounding on the voice, and not intuitive enough overall. But, I can forgive that part because I am in love with the classy looks, and the ride that is the perfect combination of buttery smooth and sporty/peppy. So far, I'm proud to be an Audi Q5 owner. I considered an X3 too, but the Audi is just so much better looking. UPDATE, 12/27/2017, 1.5 years of ownership: I still love the looks and ride of my Q5. There are things I don't love, though. The mirrors are too big and block my view a lot, and the sun visors don't extend and aren't long enough for me (I'm 5'3"). Voice control 'granny' is pretty slow. The bluetooth connection with my iphone is quite variable, and the voice with google maps only works about 50% of the time (the built in navigation I don't even use, I'd much rather use my phone apps). The a/c is not as good as the one on my 15 year old Lexus). My windshield wiper sometimes takes a random trip across the window. The doors are very heavy and tend to close when I don't want them to if I'm entering or exiting the car in a parking spot that isn't level. Stuff in the back cargo area consistently shifts around a lot more than it ever did in my RX, though I'm not sure why, and I really don't like that I can't close the back cargo door with an interior button. These are all relatively minor drawbacks, though there are many. However, I really do love the way the car rides and handles, and it's still one of the classiest looking SUVs on the road.

    Car is everything we hoped for. Price was exceptional thru Edmunds. Car is comfortable and smooth to drive. Should give us years of great service.

  • Great car as long as there is not a problem. - 2016 Audi Q5
    By -

    This is our third Q5 in a row. When the car was 2 days old the backup warning system failed and I backed into a mailbox The dealer told me the system sensors needed a deep cleaning, which they did, but would not repair a small dent. I complained to Audi, they said it is up to the dealer because that would be covered under the warranty. The dealer said Audi refuses to pay for the damage. During the next six months the GPS would freeze and the MMS system would simply not turn on at times. I complained to the dealer again this times they told me there was an update to the software due to problems that Audi was having. The dealer and Audi Still refused to take responsibility for a failed system. This will be my last Audi not because the Q5 isn't a good car but because Audi does not back their vehicles like other companies I have dealt with in the past.

  • 2016 Q5 Premium Plus from Naples - 2016 Audi Q5

    My 2016 Q5 is an excellent overall car, looks great, interior finish is very good, and 2.0 Turbo runs very well with good acceleration. Gas mileage is ok for 4 cylinder turbo and large gas tank gives you great driving range. Gas mileage should be much higher on highway. I get upper 20's at best overall. Radio sound is excellent and easy media interface but no USB port. The Navigation system works well and it's great to be able to send your directions to the car from Google. Overall the Nav is easy and accurate to set. Voice controls works as well as any of them but could use work. The push button start works well and the best feature is the side mirror closure when the locks and alarm are set. Works great and all automatic on closure and on open. The Audi grille and overall look is special and there's plenty of room in the rear compartment. I also like that you can roll the rear seats forward for more cargo room, very nice. Just a great car to drive and a great look and overall good functionality for a mid size SUV.
