The Q7 is Audi’s first ever SUV. The car was originally launched in 2006 and received glowing reviews from the industry pundits. The Q7 is a large car with an imposing stance and tons of space inside. Under the hood the Audi Q7′s feature petrol engines of a whopping 4.2 litre capacity to more recent 3.0 litre turbocharged diesels. All Q7 cars come with seven seats, FWD and automatic transmission as standard.
If you are considering buying a used Audi Q7 to satiate your need for a luxury SUV, there are several things you should be aware of about this car. So, let’s get started with the guide for buying a used Audi Q7.
Earlier models of the Audi Q7 had a modest feature set and features like cruse control, adjustable suspension, rear parking sensors and bluetooth connectivity were available only in the top-end trims. However, post the 2009 refresh, the car got an upgrade in the feature set, making comfort and connectivity features more common. So, choose wisely, when selecting a used Q7 model, keeping in view the modern driving requirements.
Larger petrol motors and even the more modest diesel variants take a milage hit due to bulky heft of the Q7. It is best to get an early check-up done if you are thinking of buying a pre-owned Audi Q7, as engine health and performance may hamper your experience if you buy a second hand luxury vehicle from a private seller. Parts and repairs are costly as well and the Q7 suffers from high-tyre wear, which is not uncommon for SUVs this size.

Best Used Audi Q7 Variant
Buying an older Q7 with a large petrol engine is definitely not recommended because of their high maintenance and running costs. Earlier diesels should also be avoided because of their lack of comfort and utility features. Go for one only if you are absolutely constrained on the budget.

Things to check before buying a used Audi Q7
- Check the vehicle’s under body for any damage caused by off road driving.
- Remote central locking in some models had seen problems arise in the past. Although it’s a simple repair, it’s better to keep an eye out for the issue when buying a second-hand Audi Q7.
- Check the interior heating and cooling on all settings, as some previous owners have reported an issue with the systems.
- Check the sunroof for leaks and breaks, which may later cause water drips.
- If you are buying an earlier model, 2004-07, then there was an issue with the electrically operate boot-lid that needed fixing, so check that out before making the payment.
- Cars made between 2011 and 2012 were recalled for a fuel leak issue, that was later fixed, so go through the service history of the vehicle if the year matches the model you are buying.
