Have you told the dealership you are posting this experience all over? you should and they might change their actions.
Once a company was trying to charge me by several hundred dollars extra beyond the contract and they wouldn't budge. I made several posts online that attracted a lot of attention and in fact the first search on google about their review would bring up my posts. Within a week I got a call from their head quarter office apologizing and telling me they would refund my money if I remove those posts. I got my money back but I didn't remove those posts so that people know how they treat their customers.

I thought OP was saying rear air bags as in rear passenger air bags. Inside the car.

Are they instead talking about the adaptive chassis and the hydraulics on that going out?

We had some brutal weather here in Chicago the past week and when the temps were well below zero, I noticed that the Q7, parked outside, had the rear end all the way down. When I opened the hatch to get something out of the trunk, it began to raise up. When I walked away, it seemed like it was now too high up. Basically, those buttons in the rear that raise and lower the rear, it was all the way down when getting to the car and then all the way up when leaving.

It drives fine and is level when driving but it was weird to see it so low when approaching the car and not even unlocking it. It's like it just happened over night.

No warning signals, though, so maybe it's by design or just a result of some of the air escaping due to the cold and the system fixing itself when it's time to drive.

I believe the OP was referring to the air bladders that do the lifting/lowering of the adaptive suspension. It's pneumatics, not hydraulics. That's why you hear the pump run sometimes. I have no direct experience, but wouldn't surprise me if the bladders are warm when you park in very low temps, that the air volume would shrink in the cold and thus the car would be lower.

A Google search brought me right back to this forum.

10 year old post, but it makes sense. Our Q7 is parked outside our garage and at an incline and it was on Allroad mode during that stormy 2 weeks we had here. I'm sure that had it sitting a bit higher than normal and the cold temps made it only worse.

I'll have to switch it back to Auto mode tomorrow. Otherwise, the car rides fine so it seems the system "figures it out" and levels itself accordingly as it warms up. No malfunction messages or anything. So certainly just physics of the cold weather, though it doesn't seem to happen in our S 550 with the air ride. It was garage parked, though, but out garage wasn't much warmer than it was outside during that time

I got my Q back today. It had a broken sensor. They think it cracked in the cold. All covered and the car is back as normal. Can't say enough good things about Continental Audi in Naperville, IL.
