This happens to my 2009 Q7. Began a couple of months ago. When "key not recognized" is displayed, I lock the car with keys, then unlock, and then he keyless autostart works. But it almost always happens on first try now. Did you ever figure out what problem was? Any suggestions?

After just over a year my Q7 started leaking rain water into the passenger side. It appears to be going through the right fuse holder area where the power for the side assist is comming from. My side assist stopped working ( I found out when I almost crashed into another vehicle). The side assist fuse is not blown and the car gives no indication on side assist trouble. Additionally, the passenger side floods. I have read several posts of the same water leaks problems and electrical problems that seem to be related to this problem.
Seems like Audi will charge you for correcting what clearly is a poor engineering design from their part. Obviously a faulty side assist with no indication of malfunction is a safety concern that can lead to a serious accident. I wonder if Audi is going to wait for a class action lawsuit before accepting some responsibility for what is obviously a faulty design.

Just purchased a 2011 Q7 S-Line Prestige. It is replacing a 2008 Mazda CX-9 that comes off lease next month. So far so good--am loving the Q7. The 333HP V6 rocks!

I'm looking to buy the 2011 Q7 S-Line Prestige, but I was told I won't get one until March 2011. When is the release date for the 2012 Q7?

Hello, we own a 2009 Q7. Besides the squeaking breaks, we couldn't complain at all until two months ago. I noticed the steering wheel was stiffening sporadically so I brought it into the dealer to check the problem. Incidentally I also ordered the rook rack. They called me the next day to tell me that at barely 24,000 miles we needed new brake pads!....I picked the car up and noticed the steering wheel was now crooked meaning I had to steer slightly to the right to keep the car straight. No pull though just a crooked steering wheel that of course was driving me and specially my husband crazy!. We also noticed an uneven humming noise that would be most noticeable at 40mph. After almost six weeks back and forth to the dealer they tell me I need alignment and that the noise is caused by the roof rack. "We are loving it!"
