2011 Audi Q7 Owners Manual – Vanity, as it concerned our long haul 2011 Audi Q7, had a quite certain cost: $70,025. Under 75% of that total would have purchased the essential vehicle itself. The rest, well, the rest is on the grounds that we needed to look great. Damn great, as it turned out. Remembered for the last count was $12,000 for the top-spec Prestige trim, a prerequisite to arrange our definitive yearning: the $2000 S-line bundle.
Enormous—But Still Wieldy
Our 2011 Audi Q7 was a substantial, 5687-pound piece, yet the agreeable connection between its controlling wheel, quickening agent, and brake pedal—which had enough exactness and weight to encourage fine information sources—made the mass almost undetectable in day by day driving. That feeling of order remained constant when pulling trailers, as well; a few staff members utilized the Q7 to drag enormous burdens to places as distant California, and all enrolled high commendation for the Audi’s towing habits.

Notwithstanding $26 for oneself poured fumes treatment liquid and almost two thousand for the substitution Dunlops, we likewise burned through $67 to supplant wiper cutting edges lost in a vehicle wash and another $458 (!) to supplant a punctured tire. On the whole—barring the harm and obliteration—we spent around ten thousand to keep the Audi out and about, including diesel fuel. Not modest by any measure, yet in addition not news: Expensive vehicles regularly are costly to run. We’ve spent comparable figures in the ongoing past on a diesel Mercedes GL and an all-wheel-drive BMW 750Li.

Tire Noise Returns—however So Do the Gorgeous Wheels
The 2011 Audi Q7‘s winter Dunlops fell off around the 25K imprint, which implied an arrival to the mid year Dunlops—and the return of the humongous and attractive 21-inch edges. Lamentably, the trade back to the firmer compound gave street moles a portion of their chomp back, and the fat Sport Maxx tires are as uproarious as could be.
