One reviewer said ride is too stiff but that's a performance vehicle that transmits road feel and control to driver...that's ok. Cruise along at 80 on the Jersey Turnpike, feels like 50 mph. My set up warning indicators remind me to slow down. Dealer explained 4 wheel drive prevents initial getaway...I'm actually afraid I'll get rear-ended because in traffic the car doesn't accelerate from zero unless you really punch it (great afterwards). Interior controls require more reading of the manual than the Sunday NY Times. A few little quirks. Light switch protrudes enough to smash your knee..its a tight fit to enter driver side especially if other drivers are shorter..must move seat way back before entering.
Leased car for price of 2 Honda CRVs..is it really worth it?" Under the "you only live once" category why not? Come winter and Audi's stability features save our lives, I guess it is worth the extra cash. I rated Value low strictly from $$ paid to own (or lease) a car. ($540/mo, $2500 down). Bottom line..if price is a consideration look elsewhere but if you can either afford it or want to live it up once in your practical life ..then go for it. Need milk or bread, not to worry, the kids will take the car anytime they are allowed to use it, even to run errands for you. Lexus, Acura, etc, suvs are one step up from Soccer mom vehicles. The Audi Q5 is a top shelf "stylin" set of wheels. Open that enormous moon roof and enjoy the day. reliability...No comment, car is 2 months old but no problems at all yet.
