Fuel Leakage: This is due to a fuel leakage from the left and right fuel rails in the 2nd gen Q7. You may notice this due to a smell of gasoline. There was a recall for this so bring your Q7 to an Audi repair mechanic.
Water Pump Failure: If your Q7 is leaking coolant, then it is probably because of a water pump failure. If this is the case, the engine can get hot and overheat, so you should have an experienced Audi technician take a look.
Brake Squealing: The 2nd Generation Q7 is known for having a high-pitched squealing coming from the brakes. This can be both annoying and embarrassing at times.
Sunroof Drains Clogging: Some owners have reported that the sunroof drains clogged up and caused a leak. Sometimes it’s as easy to clear out the drains to mitigate this issue.
