When do we get to see the new Q5 TDI in the US? This seems like a perfect blend of performance and mileage to me. Anyone have the info?
anyone having a problem with the size and location of the mirror causing a blind spot of oncoming traffic or lack of visibility on the left turn say if there is an island.
We nearly got wiped out because did not see car coming at us form the left.
I have heard others complain, Audi and Boardwalk Audi plano texas ignoring me.
I think this is dangerous.
I read about this on another forum ("dumbo" mirrors). One suggestion was to raise the seat (which seemed to help).
However after a few weeks I must have gotten use to it (my brain has adapted) and now I feel quite confident and no longer feel that it is an issue.
Other vehicles also have this issue (Toyota Landcruiser) -
Of course, you should all be aware that the US is getting the 3.0 V6 TDI in the third quarter of this year. Pricing was released a week ago, with the TDI about $2K more than the 3.0 gas. Premium Plus is the base equipment level, with a couple of things made standard on the PP level (gas and diesel).
My local dealer has told me they have already pre-sold a number of the early shipment. I'm not committing until I see the exact equipment and pricing for my desired level. Since it's now the end of June, shouldn't have to wait too much longer...
I drove a TDI today. What a slick vehicle. You barely have to put your foot into it to run right up on triple digits. And 31MPG highway at that?
This is on the list to replace the Rabbit when the S3 is paid for.
