Great car buying experience

Customer Service: 5.0 Buying Process: 5.0 Overall Facilities: 5.0

This is the first time I've bought a vehicle from a used car dealership (bought numerous used cars, just from new car dealers) so I was a bit skeptical about the process but Rick made it a great experience. My wife and I drove in to look at a specific Ram pickup we'd seen online, saw it on the lot and--since the doors were unlocked--started poking around. Rick's approach was very low pressure--he seemed confident the condition and value of the truck would be enough for us to decide. He knew that with the Internet and Carfax he wasn't going to be able to put anything over on anyone and plus he works on salary and just wants folks to be satisfied.We drove the truck and liked it but wanted to check another dealership up the street. Rick was totally cool about it (and knew the other dealer) but warned us that their trucks were mostly bought at auction whereas Frontline's are trade-ins. After a quick trip (we just didn't get a good vibe up the street) we came back to talk turkey. Rick was firm on price but I'd done my homework so I knew it was a good deal. I opted not to get the extended warranty (fingers crossed!) and, since we were paying cash, we were out the door with the keys in less than an hour.Overall it was a very positive experience. I especially like the 3-month warranty they offer. it's just a little piece of mind in case the prior owner was hiding something when they traded. I would recommend you do your research so you know what the cars are worth as the price is the price (at least it was for us). Net-net, don't hesitate to go and visit (and ask for Rick)--you won't be pressured into anything.

I've owned and sold several Audi Q5's over the years. I think the 2010 model type is one of the most dependable and overall well rounded versions of this car available. the newer smaller displacement, forced induction engines with he 8speed transmission are nice, and the gas millage is better but the reliability is worrisome and costly. Of course you should purchase ANY luxury/GERMAN vehicle with concerns regarding maintenance and price, because it will happen eventual on any make/model at any time. Having said that, Audi's are by far the best value in class. they are more sporty than their counterparts with a younger more sleek feeling. The 2010 Q5 drive smooth and easy at low speeds, and is tight and responsive at high speeds. the car feels as good to drive as it looks going down the road for thousands less than its competitors, or a new model for that matter. buy one with a few miles for under 20K and you will have a good car for years to come, so long as you get the maintenance plan as well! very well put together, inside and out.

It's a beauty on the outside, but mechanically if you buy one anything can go wrong. Sure my car had 91,000 miles on it and had Carfax Service records. So far after owning it for only 6 months, it's already has had to have a complete front end re-done, hoses replaced, they still can't figure out what's wrong with the steering that 'chatters' when you turn to the left that was $3,000 worth of work. But what has happened now is that I was noticing the anti-freeze disappearing but no leaking. The oil cap was milky which meant the antifreeze was leaking into the engine and you could watch it disappearing. I had the car towed to the Audi mechanic. The warranty I bought for $3,000 isn't worth the paper it's written on, they have loop holes in it so they don't have to fix it. Basically the engine needs to be replaced. According to the mechanic the engine is so difficult to disassemble and tons of man hours and dollars, it's easier to replace than taking it apart. So now I have no car to drive. I have over the years owned used cars from Mercedes to BMW's and have never had a problem with high miles. This car is a joke. My only resolve is to turn it back into the bank and then I will be stuck with the residual to pay for years. Anyone have any ideas? Or heard of this kind of car tragedy? Update: The dealership refuses to do anything about it. The credit union can't do anything about it. How can they in all consciousness sell you a car that is a lemon?

Love my Audi!

I have had my 2010 for a little over a year. I only had one problem with it and that was three weeks ago. The water pump went while I was driving. My husband came and had the suv towed on a flat bed to the dealer we bought it from. They told him they had no idea why the water pump went (not common on 3.2 engines). They told my husband to wait and fixed it right then and there. Now that is service. It is great on the road it hugs it. Great miles on the highway driving. I would buy another one in a heart beat. No regrets.

I used to drive a 2008 BMW X5 and didn't like the performance, comfort, quality, reliability, etc. The Audi Q5 is more than what I expected, especially the way it handles the road on an extreme condition, the way it accelerates when passing, driving uphill is like driving on a straight road. The only thing I didn't like about the Audi Q5 is the way it drives under 10 mph. Overall, the best SUV I've ever driven, better than the BMW X5

I bought my Q5Premium Plus this month after going back and forth with the car dealer trying to get a better deal with the 2011's out. I was finally able to get the vehicle at almost $4000 off the sticker. I have only driven 1200 miles, but so far I love the vehicle. On a weekend trip, I got between 26-27 MPG which I feel is excellent. I suggest that you wax the 19" wheels with a good wax. The brake dust will still show up, but it will wash off much easier. Overall I will rate this vehicle a 10. I will write again in about 6 months.

I wrote an earlier review and don't have much to add; I thoroughly enjoy the vehicle and am very happy with the choice. I do have some observations: my wife, who is 5' 2" drove my car one time and really disliked the oversize side mirrors as they obscured her view; I am 6'1" and haven't had that problem so maybe it's an issue only for smaller stature folks. If I could change one thing it still would be opting for all-season radials instead of the summer performance tires. Also, a minor beef: the rear view camera takes a few moments to initialize so I find I'm having to wait after hopping in and cranking the ignition before I can begin to back up. All in all a great car!

Purchased the 2010 Q5 about 5 weeks ago and this vehicle has exceeded all my expectations. It rides and handles beautifully. It feels very safe and stable and can stop on a dime. The interior is also quite impressive. It just looks and feels great. Really nice to drive after a long day at work. Averaging 26 mpg between 20% city and 80% highway driving. Overall, I would not hesitate to purchase another Q5 if anything ever happens to this one.

Just bought my Q5 a month ago and I love it. Very solidly built. I am really enjoying the "Smart Key" feature. I also am a fan of the MMI; though it's not really what I would call "intuitive", it hasn't been all that hard to adapt to. I love that I can make and take phone calls, navigate through the onscreen menu, adjust climate, etc, without having to "reach" for any controls. Complaints? It does seem to accelerate somewhat unevenly at very low speeds; room in the backseat is also tight--I'm 6 ft 1 in so when I drive, someone sitting behind me won't have much legroom---fortunately that rarely happens! GREAT looking car. I'll review again in 6 months.

I'm a sedan guy for a family ride, and when it came time for my wife to look for a new car I tried like heck to stay away from the SUV-Crossover segment. After driving the Q5 I have become a convert. The Q5 is a wonderful driving machine, precise in its handling (once you get used to the size) and surprisingly good in the twisties. Just got back from a road trip down to San Fran and I was very impressed. The overall feel of quality and competence in the way the Audi goes about its business is flat out impressive.

Hey you guys in the US, I had to wait 6 months to get my 3.0TDI to Australia, and I can tell you at last that it was well worth the wait. The diesel power is very different to the 3.2 version. It comes as more of of a surge, rather than the instant zippy power of a petrol motor, but when it surges, it just seems to keep producing more and more power! I chose this over the 3.2 because it is more economical and has even faster acceleration. (0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds. I won't add to the comments others have already made about the build quality and driving pleasure as I'm sure this has already been covered, just wanted you all to know that the diesel is a monster!

Awesome Audi!

This is my first German car and it's a great one - beautifully finished, good mix of power and economy, and reasonably fun handling. I sold a Mini Cooper to upsize to the Q5 and don't regret it a bit. The quality is first-rate and my wife feels safer in a larger vehicle with outstanding crash test results.

It was love at first sight! From the moment I saw the Q5 I knew that's what I wanted and had been waiting for. I had already made a deal on a BMW X3, but I was not 100% convinced that I liked the car, particular the stiff ride. I drive a lot. Every week-end I'm on the road and driving my Q5 is a dream come true! It is just pure pleasure! I love how the cockpit looks when it gets dark.

During snow or rain, when the rear hatch is opened, to gain access to the rear compartment, water, snow, dirt and salt build up in the drain channel and then run into the rear compartment. I've seen the mess run over the rubber seal. The dealer said they cannot do anything but maybe Audi will contact me and see if the problem can be solved. To date, no additional contact.

Replaced my 2009 Murano. This crossover rides so much better. More responsive steering. Handling around curves much better. Quieter on the highway. Less obstructed rearward view. Interior much finer albeit a tad bit smaller. The Audi doesn't quite match the cargo space of the Murano, but I don't miss it. I do wish the gas mileage was a little better, but this is after all a crossover not a car.

I have had my Q5 for one month (1300 miles). Moved up from 2005 Subaru Outback XT (turbo). The car feels bigger than it is (probably high hood), but the handling is superb. Nice turn radius, positive/stable in twisties, and smooth/fast acceleration. Steering feels 1:1 and no issue. Noted comment on hesitation from stop to start; haven't experienced this. Shifting smooth all the way up; sport mode is RESPONSIVE. Interior is beautiful. MMI and voice work, but there is a learning curve: reading instruction book helps! It is more expensive than the Suby (for the money, very good value). But if a luxury compact SUV is your thing, then the Q5 is an excellent choice; I highly recommend the Q5.

Beautiful car but has flaws... 1) The navigation system: does not allow searching for a restaurant type. for instance you cannot ask for Chinese, Mexican or Italian food - you just get a list of restaurants that includes everything from "taco bell" to "chez panesse". 2) The brake pads spew dark dust that spray the side of the car daily. There are no mud-flaps to prevent overspray from the front wheels so the side of my car is covered in break dust from the wheels daily. 3) Who uses dvd's? Get rid of the dvd player. 4) Who uses an ashtray? Get rid of the ashtray or at least make it larger so it can be used to hold a cell phone or business cards - its a useless space.

This vehicle is the pinnacle of luxury. It outperforms anything else I have driven. Its ride is unique, firm but smooth at the same time. It's a definite buy.

I am reporting review AUDI Q5 (year of 2010) because the front daylight headlight running sets problems, I purchased an AUDI Q5 in 9/23/2009, it happened 3 times of front headlight daylight running sets broken in 5 months, my car's current mileage is only 5700 mile, which is apparently not the LED headlight quality problem, which is highly possible on the electrical problems, now I am waiting for AUDI's response to see they will treat it as a lemon car case or not.

Great SUV

I had a Q5 Premium plus with S-line package, had this vehicle for almost 2 weeks now & I will say that this is the best car I ever had. Day time running LED lights makes a cool stylish appearance. Ride is great & quite, car keeps on lane with very little steering effort. Interior fit & finish is excellent. MMI nav is not really user friendly, but once used will be ok, would love if have touch screen.. The display on meter shows the songs list & tel numbers without interfering nav screen is great. I would definitely recommend any one looking to buy a compact SUV to drive this car.

Great Car!

This is by far the best SUV in this size and price range. We test drove the XC60, RX350, GLK350, X3, SRX and the RDX. The Q5 comes out on top quality wise.

Very nice with a few caveats...

Overall, the Q5 is a wonderful driving experience. I live up north and it handles extremely well in the snow. Very comfortable and pleasant to drive. However, there are issues. The nav system, although nice looking, gives unreliable directions. I use my $180 portable instead. And the key. How do you screw up an ignition key? The MMI (multi media) system is nice but forgets your settings. Stupid things like always having to tell it to "shuffle" the music - every time you use it it requires 4 clicks. It also forgets your seat heater settings. Also, with the MMI buttons on the middle console, its very easy to accidentally touch one. Why doesn't it have a touch screen???!!

Wow, really the best car!

WOW, what a terrific vehicle. I read a review before buying it that claimed it was the only SUV that truly drove like a car unlike others who claim the same, and I agree. It is very fun to drive, got hit with many snow storms this winter and I just drove right through everything with no problem, passing other struggling cars. Handles great, comfortable ride, technology is convenient. I have the Prestige package, fully loaded, and I don't regret spending the extra money. Its a beautiful car and I feel good about myself when being seen with it (as shallow as that sounds) I have the Luxury package with the Milano Leather and ventilated seats, which I cant wait to try in the summer! BEST CAR

The car runs well, but when we brought the car in for the first service we were told the water pump had a leak and they had to replace it, but it needed to be ordered. When they received the part we brought the car back to the dealer and they replaced the water pump but then told us there was a small leak in the transmission and they said Audi told them to replace the transmission. Went back when they received the transmission and they replaced it but then they said it was programmed for a diesel and had to order another one. Next one came and same problem. Now we are waiting for the 3rd transmission to arrive and the car has been there for 2 weeks. Still waiting for my car.

Buyer Beware

Audi Q5 is a great vehicle as long as you do not drive under 10 mph, I have a major transmission issue, 3rd replacement in 2 months, Audi corporate will not stand behind their products and work with you to satisfy yourself as a consumer, my vehicle has lurched and hesitated when coming to a stop causing 2 near accidents, I have never experienced such poor customer service form a corporate and a dealer standpoint, they act like it is my fault there is an issue, you have been warned!

I purchased the prestige S-line model, and love it. I was looking at the RX350, RDX, XC60,etc.. and this beats them out of the race. The car is awesome looking from the outside and has all the gadgets to keep you happy. It is more masculine so guys can drive this feeling good and I get alot of looks But best of all it does not feel like you are driving an SUV but more like a car. Space is just right, but if needing to hall more stuff in the hatch, then this may not be for you, but if your getting around town, taking kids and going to work this is perfect.

Premium plus, really nice

Nice car. Interior design and quality are substantial. Handles exceptionally well. Power is faultless. Gives a feeling of total control over driving experience. Stock stereo with satellite radio is outstanding. Love that everything is lit at night, no fumbling for any controls. Easy integration with cell phone and i pod, voice commands work, nav. controls are confusing at first, but get better over time. There is still lots to learn about how to get the most out of the electronics. Roof rack is exceptionally easy to put on. A long list of suggested improvements, but still a killer car.

Great pick if changing from coupe

I changed from a Honda Accord coupe into the 2010 Q5 Premium Plus model with the S-Line package. I love the smooth ride, the quiet of the engine and the ability to pick up speed quickly. As for changing over from a coupe to a crossover, it has been seamless. The car is nimble, parks in standard spaces yet feels a lot larger when on the road. It also offers great general visibility from all sides. I didn't get the optional side assist feature, but still feel great about the views I do get.

Awesome

I purchased this vehicle a week ago. The driving experience has far exceeded expectations. The AWD keeps it glued to the road and the acceleration is very good. Acceleration from 0 to 20 MPH is not fast, but after 40 MPH, acceleration is sports car like. This is my first SUV and I was concerned about driving fun. However, the high up seating position affords excellent visibility, the Q5 handles like a car and it is an overall fun ride. I compared this to the RDX, XC60, RX350 and am very satisfied. The Q5 is a luxury SUV/car, that is just the right size. The Audi cockpit and attention to detail can't be beat. Also, the Q5 has plenty of room for the wife and kids.

Excellent

The interior is outstanding and the handling has been a pleasant surprise. It has the right amount of firmness and handles hills and acceleration beautifully. I am thoroughly impressed. The only negative comment I have is about the iDrive feature or whatever they call it. I was pretty proficient in the BMW iDrive and came to like it. I hope that I will eventually learn to navigate my Audi's too, but so far it has not been intuitive. I think I will come to like it but it is going to take a few weeks to get used to it.

A Great Car!

I picked up a Black Prestige a few days ago. I own a Volvo XC90, but handling in the Q5 is far superior, as it drives as a sports car. We had a massive snowstorn last week, which has made roads slippery and icy in Wisconsin. I am very impressed with how the Q5 handles the road under these conditions. Regarding the purchase, I was between the Premium Plus with Nav and Prestige Packages. I went for the Prestige and paid the extra 3K, but I think the only accessory really worth the extra cost is the side-assist (only available for Prestige). I think the B&O Stereo is overrated. Overall, I am quite happy so far.

This car has it all over the RX

This car has it all over the RX. It has better electronic gadgetry, handling, design and is a blast to drive. The seamless bluetooth integration with my IPhone was totally painless and automatically took all my contacts without even prompting me. The voice recognition is excellent and I can call people without taking my eyes off the road as well as enter a destination. The quattro drive system is awesome and the LED daytime running lights are very cool. The seats are very comfortable and lumbar support is fabulous. Great job Audi.

2010 Audi Q5 is good vehicle but reliability is sub par. I bought my Q5 in August 09. I had jerks with upshift and downshift due to improperly installed transmission filter which apparently was a factory defect. The convenience key also quit working and they had to change the whole convenience module. They fixed it all under warranty. When I called Audi they offered me a mere 5000 miles extension on warranty or $250 cash (for a $53000 car!!). Looks like they do not trust their own product. I am just frustrated that I have been sold a defective product.

This Was A Good Decision

Just picked up my Q5. This is the first luxury SUV that I've owned. The last time I experienced quality like this was when I owned a Jaguar. The ride is terrific. It's solid, responsive and absolutely a ton of fun to drive. Audi has combined looks, performance and fun in their 2010 Q5! I've started reading the owner's manual to get up to speed. There is a lot to this car and it will take awhile to understand all the bells and whistles but it's worth it. I bought a Meteor Gray (great color) Premium Plus and added 19" wheels and the B&O stereo. I'm looking forward to driving this vehicle for a long time. Test drive one of these and you'll see that Audi has it all over Mercedes, BMW & Lexus.

I LOVE My Audi!!!!

My husband and I sold our 15 year old BMW 530 and bought this wonderful vehicle. I drive it most days and just love it. It's not too high, so I don't feel like I have to step up to get in to it. It's so fun to drive, I'm getting in to work early because I can't wait to drive it. I can't find anything about it I would change. The mileage is great! Where has this vehicle been all these years! I'm sold! I'm quite sure I'll never drive anything else.

Ordered our Q5 Prestige Pkg Audi on 27 Jul and on 3 Nov it arrived. The Q5 was worth the wait! Get the S-line pkg. The 20 inch chrome wheels put the finishing touch on this black beauty. This is a great looking SUV with the best handling, ride, and appearance of all the mid-size SUVs (BMW/Lexus etc). Try the Q5 if you're tired of seeing yourself at every traffic-light and/or parking space. My wife loves the way it handles and rides and the engine has enough power to satisfy her driving habits. I've owned other Audi's making us qualified for a $1K loyalty discount. It has a first class dynamic 505 watt sound system. The Q5's Quattro suspension system is like nothing you have ever driven.
