And I disagree with you. The Q5 is a wonderful CUV. Just because you had issues, doesn't mean everyone will have similar issues. You've taken many opportunities the blast the car but you're in the minority. Get on with your life and give people useful advise on software updates, break-in periods etc. It seems you live to blast Audi for the rest of your life....MOVE ON!!!

Has anyone else experienced a loud squeaking sound when finishing braking (from 5-0 MPH)? It happens everytime. Audi claims this is completely normal for the Q5, but it is super annoying and just doesn't seem right.
#110 of 128 Q5 2011, 3000 miles - total transmission failure
Nov 11, 2010 (3:49 pm)
I was doing 65 miles an hour on the interstate, straight on good road, and my 2011 Audi Q5 with 3000 miles on it experienced total transmission failure. The engine just revved with no power to the wheels. I was lucky to have pulled over.
I got a flatbed tow to the nearby Audi of Brookline in Boston. They said it will take a week, that the transmission computer is shot.
I had to leave to go to work. They offered me a loaner.
I'm so furious at Audi I could just spit. I called the dealership that I bought it from, and he told me to call Customer Relations. I was nice. I'm not going to be so nice anymore. I'm going to have HIM call customer relations and I'm seriously considering a buy-back. I've had the car less than two months.
Any advice out there?
#111 of 128 Chill Out!!!

Any automobile is prone to mechanical/electrical failures. Not only Audi. Talk to Mercedes, BMW owners etc. Go to Edmunds forums for them and take a look!!

If your brand new car almost killed you and your family with a major system malfunction, would YOU chill out?
Or maybe you're a shill for Audi.
#113 of 128 2011 Audi Q5 Dangerous Failed Transmission
Nov 13, 2010 (10:59 pm)
I got word from the Brooklyn, MA Audi dealership that my 2011 Q5 with the 8 speed transmission will actually need a completely new rear axle and differential. Seems like the car pretty well killed itself, and nearly killed me.
Audi customer service is saying "we'll make a determination once it's fixed." I told them, "your car almost killed me, I want my money back, and damages." They said they couldn't do that. They said the car had to be repaired first. I'm not interested in owning the car anymore. How can I trust it?
This was not small technical issue. This was the transmission. This was at highway speed. I could have easily died if the highway traffic wasn't very light because of the holiday.
Lawyer time? Anyone have the address of the executive management?

My 2010 Q5 was repurchased due to a faulty transmission, I had the same response from Audi customer service that you had, I do not care what anyone says, I had two Audi's and both were POS when it came to reliability, I never experienced this lack of reliabilty with Mercedes, BMW or Acura. To the person who said " chill out " you must be a ' troll " !!!

if your loaner is an Audi, the info it's on the glove compartment. first call customer relations n very nicely they'll guide you to send a letter to corporate, that's where you can make progress based on your allegations.
also start and arbitration with the bbb auto, that process it's fairly easy n it will help you cut to the chase, of course the security issue it's alarming n should be enough to proceed before achieving the 30 days required of the car in the shop, and more important it will tell Audi you are serious n will put pressure on them.
hope that works, and good luck!

i'm curious what q5 package do you have? is it the prestige or premium? do you have auto ignition starter? just curious as we've been having same issue... starting to wonder if it has to do with the auto ignition.
#117 of 128 2011 Audi Q5 2.0T making noise when turning..
Dec 26, 2010 (1:25 pm)
Took delivery on our 2011 Audi Q5 2.0T about two weeks ago and right away heard a noise. Happens when you turn the car to the left; most noticeable during turn acceleration and when turning the wheel back to center after turn complete. A sort of high-pitched rubbing/squeal noise. Took it back to the Audi dealer 3 to 4 days after we bought it and had 3 different techs tell me there is no noise. My husband hears it, thinks it could possibly be a wheel bearing? but we are not sure. We are in Spokane, WA. The (best) closest dealer to us would be in the Seattle, WA area, +300 miles away. Since the dealer can't hear it, their solution is to tear apart the steering column and lubricate everything, which doesn't seem much like a solution to me since they don't know if that's where the mysterious noise is coming from. Hubby thinks it is outside the car. Any ideas?
