Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

CarComplaints.com Notes: Consumer Reports said the 2012-14 Q5 ranks "very good" for reliability, and so far our numbers show it's hard to argue with that. Just know that you might have a tough time keeping the car straight on the highway.

2013 Audi Q5 Owner Comments

Notchiness, friction while rotating steering wheel within few degrees from 12'O clock position either side. Problem persisted despite the software update. Another issue was whistling sound from side mirror. At times particularly while driving at high speed, it get so pronounced as if a "fly" is buzzing next to the drivers ear. I complained to dealership and Audi on 09/14/2013. Since then I'm driving loaner. Dealership tried to return car on 09/17/13, none of the issues were fixed. I returned car to dealership again. I complained again to Audi of usa. Now, I am told that side mirrors are replaced and fixed. However, notchiness/friction in steering wheel still persist. There is nothing Audi can do to fix this. Dealership is insisting me to accept my car. However, I am reluctant to accept due to concern of potential safety issue. Please advise.
