Audi 2014 SQ5 just came off a lease with just under 20k. Have had it a few months and it's a great suv to drive. Way fun!

Sounds good. Most newish VAG products are nice to drive and have very nice interiors.
See how well that Audi is doing in four years or so.
Your experience may turn a little sour, although I hope not and wish you well.

Congrats!

Wife has had her Q5 for 3 years now. So far it's been great.

Sounds like a fun crossover. Enjoy the drive and don’t let the naysayers here get at you.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

Those are sharp, especially in silver with black interior. One of my favorite color combos!

Nice car. The Jetta in my sig is not in the same class as your SUV but a VAG product none the less and has been a pleasant car to own thus far minus a couple small issues.

Congrats. Audis can be very reliable cars if you take care of them; and there is absolutely no reason to not take care of an expensive car.

Is is just the Q5 or the sq5 as well that has a recall for their gas tanks?

It's a fuel pump flange recall, not really a gas tank issue. I don't believe SQ5 was included in that service action, but the OP can punch in his VIN at audiusa.com to see if his vehicle is affected.
