    What to replace my 2010 Q5 with?

    Am thinking of replacing my Q5 which I love, but is starting to have more and more issues. I'd love something similar, and used, either a 2016 or a 2017 (maybe a 2015).


    Was thinking of a Mercedes GLC300, but it seems to get mixed reviews (some sites give it great reviews and reliability, others not so much...).


    Most important to me is reliability (I want to lessen the odds of being where I am right now, with issues cropping up in a few years), and second is performance (the car's gotta move...!).


    Any thoughts/suggestions?


    Thanks!

    Hard to argue “the love factor”.

    As such...Here’s something very similar:
    (2017) Audi Q5 3.0T
    272HP/295 TQ = gonna move!


    •Up until now:
    -your current Audi has been reliable
    -with proper upkeep: I see no reason for
    a 2017 not providing the same ~9 years
    of reliability.

    My wife had a 2015 Q5 3.0T. The car was built like a tank, she was a bumper magnet and was hit at least three times and the car repaired well and continued to drive well until she was ready for something else. I've had very bad luck with Mercedes and can't recommend them based on personal experience.

    Since you've had good luck with Audi I say stick with them. I have a S5 and it's a good car...had an S4 and it treated me well.

    Good luck, no matter what you choose.

    I brought up the CX-5 because for what a used "badge brand" costs you could probably get a CX-5 Signature w/turbo for the same price or close enough to it. A bonus is being able to option it in Soul Red IIWhat to replace my 2010 Q5 with? The interior has real wood and aluminum options and Napa leather, there's a nice bone white and brown available, atleast stop by and check it out, maybe a test driveWhat to replace my 2010 Q5 with?What to replace my 2010 Q5 with?What to replace my 2010 Q5 with?

    My wife has a 2016 Q5, it’s the 2.0 but it has had zero issues as of now (just under 50K miles), for whatever it’s worth. Love that car in the snow.
