Morning all

well, I’ve joined this community as my A6 Quattro was recently written off and I’m thinking of replacing it with an SQ5

2014 or 2015 model year with around 60-80k miles

wondered before buying where are the weaknesses in particular how long would I expect to get out of a turbo given there’s 2 of them

how are the Auto boxes

anything else to look for

Welcome to the forum. Not aware of any issues with the SQ5 turbos or triptronic, all very reliable and solid. I would suggest avoiding the versions that require adblue nonsense, I think they started appearing later half of 2015. My main issue is the EGR, and it gunking up the inlet manifold flap! You can get the EGR removed, but you will also need to have the DPF (its a must, car will not work properly otherwise) removed and an ECU retune, which will cost about £4K! Plus you will fail an MOT...
