Default 2018 SQ5 order delayed

Does anyone know why the Prestige SQ5 production is being held up? My order has DAP, Sport package and Dynamic steering. I have had production complete dates (ETA) of 06/11, 07/14 and 07/27. I called my sales manager today and found that production is not complete and they did not bother to assign a new (ETA) production complete date. My order was placed 03/28/2017.

Having the same issue. SQ5 with DAP, sport and dynamic. Should have been complete but stuck in "factory".

My salesperson said they checked and it looks like all SQ5s with DAP are help up. They emailed Audi yesterday and are supposed to let me know what they hear.

Same issue here with my Prestige SQ5 with DAP, Sport and no dynamic steering. Original build week was supposed to be week 30. Checked with my BS and he called Audi production and they said to check back next week for an update, so not sure what the hold up is.

Hopefully the regular Q5 isn't in the same situation. A few with DAP are showing up on dealer sites as "in transit" with VINs

Other people with Q5s are reporting their vehicles shipping out. Seems to be an SQ5 problem only.

I checked Dealers websites and quickly found seven dealers that have SQ5s with DAP and two with dynamic steering.

Hopefully that means they'll get them moving along.

I just had a call from Audi USA informing me my SQ5 is being built and that my order will be updated. I'm hoping that they aren't just telling me what I wanted to hear.

and 0 that have them....on a website means just that. Does not mean a car that is in stock, or even available for sale

There are 0 SQ5's with DAP in the US

There are 34, nationwide, that are in transit from the factory

Things happen to delay production all the time - no matter what brand it is. Your dealer should be your first point of contact

Hoping I get the same news. I originally placed my order on March 3rd.
