Default New to Audi

Just purchased a 2017 CPO Q7 Premium Plus last weekend. I'm new to Audi, having only owned the usual Japanese brands and a Porsche. So far the Q7 seems to be a well built SUV. I did notice the squeak in my brakes when it was cold, but I read there was a TSB for that. What other things should I be mindful of in terms of common problems?. I've always been under the impression that catching problems before they get worse leads to least amount of headaches.. Also, is Audi Care Plus a worthwhile investment?

Congrats. Look on the label between the driver side doors to see when it was manufactured. Some of the early builds has moon roof sqeaking issues. This is my first Audi as well, and so far so good, but I own for 8+ years so we'll see,

Audi Care appears to be worth it. We've been putting on 7,500 miles a year, so I'm not sure if its worth it for me....I'm considering it

I think it worth unless you have trusted shop to do maintenance for you, otherwise it would cost you 1000 ish in every maintenance.

I believe my carfax says it was put in service in September 2016. When do the early builds stop having the problems?

Remember, the US 2017 Q7 started in the US in the Fall of 2015! Yes, 2015! So you are about a year out production-wise and should be good. Not saying that you are guaranteed issues if it wasn't, just that early ones had moon roof issues reported.

If there are no issues with your Q, dont create them. Have fun!
