The exhaust system accumulates water and when temperatures are below 32 degrees water will freeze and car will not operate. Two gallons of water was removed from the exhaust system in order for the car to run.

The vehicle has had the same problem of misfiring for over 2 years and has been pointed out to the repair shop on many occasions. The next problem is the truck taking very long to crank over when starting. The last problem is the vehicle has water ingress that is causing the electrical components to not function properly. The vehicle has been brought in to be repaired over 10 weeks and problem still is happening. The warranty even expired while they were fixing the vehicle. The vehicle has become a loss interms of resale value and cannot be traded.

I currently own a 2007 Audi Q7 3.6 and believe there is a safety issue with all 2007 3.6 vehicles. The vehicle is advertised to have the towing ability to tow up to 6600lbs. On three separate occasions while towing a 435lb aluminum trailer the check engine light came on along with the epc (electronic power control) light and the car goes into a safe mode which will not allow you to go over 3000rpms. This problem only occurs while towing for over an hour but when the safe mode is installed the car has no power and with a trailer still hooked up the car has trouble going over 45mph. This is a very dangerous situation especially on the highway when trucks are passing you doing 70mph. My Q7 was in the dealership three times for this problem and I'm still not satisfied that the problem has been corrected. They downloaded new software to my engine control module which changes the performance of my car but I believe anyone who owns this same vehicle and attempts to tow will find themselves in the same dangerous situation. Most people don't use this type of car to tow with even though they advertise this as a selling point. All 2007 Q7 3.6 vehicles should be tested and have the updated software installed in there car before someone gets hurt
