They did our brakes last summer, and all was good for a while, but the squeal is coming back. Not as bad as before, but noticeable and frequent.
Our lease runs out in August. We start shopping for other SUVs soon...

Hi Ned, that's what I am doing now looking at options on SUV's. The brakes was the straw that did it for me, hate to say.....

This is frkn ridiculous. Went the Audi of America route, of no avail though. Took few months of ping pong only too tell me that "they're on national backorder". Lower than my previously reputed and trusted dealer service, currently hypocritically low.

Literally disgusted by their indifference and hypocrisy, especially that i only had good past experiences .

Cheers,

Bob

Bob, I know you're feeling. I started griping to my dealer 3K miles ago about the sqeeling noise backing out of garage. Was at my oil change I was telling them again when another advisor spoke up and said we been changing brake pads for awhile. I got pissed. Took 2 more weeks to get the pads in and back I go again. I am currently looking at other sun's. never had sop many problems and just 19K miles on it...

Yeap, just clocked 20k, use to call them Smiles(from the SQ5), the didn't do my complementary alignment because i missed the 10k/1year cutoff, because i waited FOR THEIR BRAKE PADS, and do it then. Now i know why they had 3 Yelp stars... I'd give AoA negative 3.

Cheers,

Bob

Bob, after so much griping and posting a online review to google they did it for free. When a vehicle pulls in for service there it drives over these plates that prints out the alignment. Mine was so red couldn't believe it. The mechanic came and cal;ked to me to tell how bad it was. Im guessing from Factory .. Also took some complaints from here and showed them about alignment and tire issues...

Default Brake pads Replaced TSB # 2050735/5

Just took my 2017 Q7 in with 25K miles. Complained about the brake squeal and the dealer found a new TSB # 2050735/5 related to the issue. Happy now that I can reverse out of the garage without waking the neighbors.

Hopefully that's a permanent fix.

My Q7 is a year old, and zero brake squeal to date.

What's really odd is my S5 had bad brake squeal first 2 years of ownership, mainly when cold. Not a single squeal for the last 6 months or so....

Good luck. I was also happy for almost 6K mikes after they applied the TSB, then the squeal came back gradually.

Well after 3 sets of pads and doing the service bulletin twice it still squeals I hate this car and I hate the Audi brand they lost me as a cust forever. The Suv is a huge issue I have had more small things go wrong in this car then any other car I have owned. The dealer is great thank god they help me with everything but as far as the brand they could care less about any of us.......enjoy the back and forth emails and the non call backs.
