Probably best to purchase a certified one through Audi so you have some recourse in the event if an oil consumption issue.


no consumption issues on the Q5, you can buy the vehicle with a smile

From a current owner of a '13 CPMA engine with eight at 100k miles. Yes they still burn oil.. I believe I'm at around1L/1000k miles

Our 2014 Audi Q5 never consumed until 64,000 miles now it uses over half a quart per 1000 miles as measured by Audi dealer. AudiUSA states this is acceptable, but will not release specification to owner or dealer. Its beyond warranty so there is no recourse by Audi. There was a class action suit for 2011, so apparently they have not fixed the problem. If you check the maintenance program it does not mention this or mention replacing piston cylinders or rings.
