Love this car - not too big, but a great family car that doesnt trip over into the wagon/minivan or mega SUV category. Drives very well for its size.

So Far So Good — Even routine maintenance can be pricey. Not many auto shops have tools and VAG COM to perform the necessary maintenance and repairs on the vehicle. Some fittings came loose and had to be fixed like front bumper on one side and a hose connection- Audi issued TSB's to correct it but it shouldn't happen on a "premium/luxury" car. Car runs great, feels great and even smells great. Overall I am happy with it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: style, performance, features, comfort

Cons: pricey maintenance (even routine), body build quality needs improvement as it is underpar

Awesome Car! — This car has it all! Fuel efficiency, cargo space, fun to drive, sporty and lux look! Everything you could want! The standard feautres are a lot and more than any other luxury cars in the same price range. The panorama sunroof is super nice and convenient and the different seat configurations for passengers and cargo is great!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Awesome fuel efficiency, great looks and handling!

Cons: The high maintenance cost :(

I Will Recommend The Q5 To Anybody! — A nice car to own. Very nice to use as Family transport and/or commuting to/from work. The Q7 has more space and luxuries but are much bigger for everyday use. The Q5 is fun to drive and very fuel efficient! A very safe and good-looking car!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: She is nippy and zippy and fuel efficient!

Cons: The sound system sucks!

Overall Great Small Suv. — Amazing little SUV. Was a little skeptical due to the size, we really wanted the Q7 but the price and gas mileage were definitely factors. This car is fun to drive. Quick out of the gate! The Premium package is loaded. Rear Camera assist is amazing, 3D color navigation is the best I've seen yet, DVD player for the front screen,et... The car looks great, I wish the cargo area was a bit bigger.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Style, Audi interior, quick...

Cons: cargo size, backseat small.

Overall Excellent Purchase — I really enjoyed this car for the two years I drove it. The S mode feels like a sports car and has great pickup speed. I've taken this car to the mountains on ski trips and can fit 4 pple comfortably with skiis and luggage. Great look and excellent control in automatic or steptronic.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Car handles very well for an SUV.  Looks sleek as well and drives more like a sporty car than SUV.

Cons: None, this is the hottest SUV on the road.

2011 Audi Q5 2.0T quattro Premium Plus AWD Review
says:
A surefooted stable all weather utilitarian vehicle that is sporty yet smooth as molten butter and as stylishly luxurious as value would allow. The panorama sun/moonroof lets the light in making the already spacious cabin look even more so and inviting for your guests. For the price point, it is a smooth cruiser but one can wake up the beast by shifting to S mode. I was crossshopping current year lexus NX, Mercedes GLC (and GLK), and BMW X6 at higher price points and they did not deliver the versatile appeal yo the driver senses as the Q5 could. Although I bought mine pre-owned at high highway miles, there is no doubt it still feels and runs like new. The interior fit and finish have held up well indicative of the attention of detail befitting a German luxury mobile. The cons are that because the standard suspension is fairly sporty and firm, rough roads may be felt more but its manageable. If you can, find a Q5 with adaptive dampers and audi drive select and youll have 3+ cars of feel in one! Also, this MY has piston and ring oil consumption issues as well as timing chain tensioner flaws. Luckily it was fixed in mine. Do your due diligence and find one that has these fixes done and car will be bulletproof. MY and minor facelift (2009-2012s look better in my opinion) 2013+ Q5s seem to have these fixes done so could save you a headache. Overall, amazing bargain for the price. Way more car for money than buying a new car with steep depreciation or an econobox that is more of an appliance. We spend so many hours in our residences, places of work AND in our car and we care/indulge majorly in the former 2 so why not treat yourself with world class commuting comfort, utility and technology. Caveat: as with most nice things, just pay a little more :]
