My dad has a Q5; loves it. Radiator exploded at like 13,xxx miles, but obviously got it replaced under warranty (got a A4 vert rental, so much fun to drive). Audi is going to get rid of the 3.2's soon, so get on that if you really want one.

The throttle response off the line is weird, but after you get past that, it's pretty torque-y and is definitely a performer after 40mph. Engine sits a little high, so the cabin feels a little weird. (Mom owns a GLK, so compared to that, it feels like you're sitting inside a tank.) Also, the rear-view mirror is kinda low and can block some of your view of the road, depending on seat position.

Nevertheless, a great car. Reviews put the new X3 > Q5, but I haven't been inside the new X3, so I unno. I do recommend the Q5.
