From the ceiling to the floor: buy Audi Q7
If you are not allergic to large crossovers or Volkswagen as a whole, then it is probably impossible to dislike Q7. It is clear that the taste and color of all markers are different, but in their class no competitor has such elegance. Large, comfortable, richly equipped, also traveling almost like a passenger … What can sadden the everyday life of a happy owner?
In the case of Q7 with mileage, the step from love to hate can be overcome in one visit to the service center. Damn expensive to maintain, even during the warranty, and even “killed” by the previous owners of the car will be the reason for the most fierce negative emotions quickly. And if he is also with the “unsuccessful motor” …
Choose Audi Q7 4L with mileage: body corrosion and electrical problems
On the origin and relatives When VW released its very successful Touareg, and Porsche – a platform Cayenne, Audi for some time remained without a large crossover. It is difficult to establish exact motives now, rather …
So what is a “bad motor”? First of all, it is 4.2 FSI (BAR). The set of potential problems here is much wider than in conventional modern VW engines: the tension of the timing chain, the low resource of fuel injection pumps and direct injection nozzles. In the electrical system of the motors, the ignition coils are brought in, and sometimes some sensors. Well, the cherry on the cake is the aluminum coating of the walls of the cylinders, the scuffs on which will force you to become familiar with the overhaul methods of modern aluminum motors and prices for second-hand units. In general, the motor is so-so.
But it so happens that the rest of the gasoline engines are not much better. If you are ready for any suffering, just to not be known as a “tractor driver”, then you will have to look for a car with 3.6 FSI (BHK). It will be slightly better than 4.2 FSI, but the replacement of timing chains and problems with fuel equipment on high runs are guaranteed the same way.
There is another series of petrol engines 3.0 TFSI (this is CJWE, CTWB, CJTC, CJWC, CJTB, CJWB, CNAA and CTWA). Cars with them will be fresher by the year of production (not older than 2011), but they also suffer from teasers. And then there is not a very good compressor in the pressurization, and most importantly – with them on the Q7 they put a not very good eight-speed automatic transmission ZF 8HP45. For a long time she usually does not drive, and the repair is expensive.
So what then to watch? Diesel engines! Yes, they will have problems with fuel equipment (common rail, you know) on large runs, but still the 3.0 TDI diesels (BUG, BUN, CASB, CASA, CJGA) are the best that can be found on Q7. By the way, the market price for the three-liter Q7 of 2009-2010, according to our valuation service (and we don’t have a reason not to believe), varies around 1.1-1.2 million rubles. Therefore, we will definitely look at these options.
In extreme cases, the 4.2-liter TDI (BTR, CCFC,
CCFA). Needless to say, the Q7 shoots with it is fun, but not for long: the AKP does not stand up. Although, I confess, with diesel engines is the best automatic transmission, which can be on the Q7 – Aisin TR60SN. There is also a “middling” ZF 6HP21, which usually stands with a gasoline 3.6 FSI. Not a phenomenally reliable box, but obviously “tenacious” than 8HP45.
Well, and finally, a few words about the six-liter W12 diesel that is striking in its capabilities. If you are not sleeping with Rockefeller’s daughter, then it is better not to get involved with him: on these machines it is definitely “burned out”, and the unreal torque causes the transmission to be knotted very quickly. Yes, and the suspension with a heavy engine falls hard. Even a little “ushatannaya” Q7 with this engine can ruin a small small business. However, there are almost no such cars on sale, so let’s look at the more common versions. I note that the choice turned out to be very poor: there wasn’t too much on the Q7 sale, and very few cars fit into our budget.
Today we will start the inspection with the most expensive car. The fact is that she had such a surprise, the potential existence of which in Q7 I did not even guess.
So, it looks very good car 2012 release. The price is slightly higher than planned – one million three hundred thousand, but the car is so good that you definitely need to look at it. Moreover, there is always a reason for bargaining. The motor is a three-liter diesel (as a result, all the cars were caught just with such a motor), the mileage is 140 thousand kilometers.

Salon also preserved perfectly. It is very likely that the mileage is honest here: all the buttons and twirls look new. Yes, and the skin is preserved perfectly, and only on the side of the driver’s seat, it is slightly deformed and worn. But this stuff.
