I have heard bad things about the auto gearbox from a higher mileage Q7 owner but that is nothing new or original with ZF boxes of a certain mileage. Happens in all cars that use the ZF particularly 6 gear but also to a lesser extent the 8 speed auto boxes. Although they are factory sealed for life if they have had an oil and filter change at 80k miles they will likely last a lot longer than if they don't. So the word is if you buy a car using a ZF auto transmission change the oil if it approaching or over 80k miles even if the previous owner says its been done. Only costs about £150 in oil, gasket and filter.

I upped my budget and thought i'd found potentially a Q7 thats ticking a lot of boxes.

But just been reading the reviews on autotrader and there's far to many in fact 20% that 

say stay away from the dealer 

Oh well lol

Is that for customer service or dodgy cars?
