Well, the missus has now selected the Audi Q5 2.0T after test driving several SUV's. I was hopeful that the new redesigned 2103 Acura RDX would have hit all bases, but in the end, driving dynamics won out.
That being said, is there any issues, flaws, or big warnings about these cars? Didn't they get a new transmission recently, and did that eliminate the problems they had with their transmissions in earlier year Q5s?
What is this "carbon buildup" issue that many Audis are experiencing?
Consumer Reports gives it a reliability rating of "Worse than average" (black dot). However, the car had the highest ratings from their tests. I do love Consumer Reports, BTW.
Are they still in short supply at the dealers? Better room for negotiation now?
Any current owners experiences welcome. Any Audi technician responses definitely welcome.
