2017 Audi Q7 Owner Comments

problem #8

Oct 252018


  • 22,400 miles


Bought vehicle from dealer with 22K miles, as a previous two year lease vehicle. After owning it for four days, noticed loud screech in brakes when backing up and applying brakes first time in the day. Took to local shop, and they found brakes to be ok, and that there is a bulletin on this with no fix at this time. But what they did find is very uneven wear on my front tire, which we would not have noticed. They said there was a bulletin on this at the 14K mileage mark for tire replacement on the Goodyear Eagle. We were fortunate that the dealer we purchased from agreed to replace all four tires for us with continentals. No hassles at all. Could have missed the notice since it was a lease vehicle. But I wonder how long we would have gone without knowing this"?" if it wasn't for getting the brakes checked, we wouldn't have known. Waiting now for a fix on the brake noise. Kind of embarrassing when driving an expensive vehicle.

I purchased this vehicle brand new with only 8 miles. Ever since I took posession of the vehicle, the brakes have been making noise when applying the brakes, going forward or reverse no matter how fast or slow I go. Have been taking the vehicle to the dealer few times already for the same issue and all they are telling me is that Audi is aware of the issue and they will contact me as soon as they have a solution for it. Dealer refuses to replace the brake pads or the rotors. Its been a year since this issue nothing has been done.

Brakes make a very loud squeaking sound when used in reverse. Brakes have been checked by the dealer; dealer advised that brakes were fully operational, nor safety concerns and that Audi was 'trying to fix the problem' with the rotors and brake pads. Noise began after the Audi pre sense feature slammed on the brakes while in reverse, backing out of my driveway (because a rain drop landed on the camera lense) and continues to worsen.

When moving the car in reverse from overnight parking in my garage, the brakes squeal excessively. This sound does not occur when braking while moving in a forward direction. The car stops appropriately, but the sound it quite loud in reverse braking mode. The sunroof creeks and pops during city driving and highway driving. I just read an article on consumerreports.com about exploding sunroof problems and I'm concern that this could happen due to lack of reporting and manufacturers not taking ownership of the defect. Popping sounds coming from my sunroof have me concerned about my panoramic sunroof exploding during travel in the vehicle

8500 miles brake squeal. Audi says there working on a fix for this issue and its been 6 months and still no repair they are ignoring the issue. Slow speed stop and reverse brakes squeal loud. Audi stated they have had this issue and I should have been told when purchased. I have a case number with them and its being ignored. This is an issue that will result in a problem if its not investigated they need to stop telling people this is normal. I asked Audi for a letter stating my care was safe to drive and they could not provide one witch is very concerning.
