When a consumer wants a luxury SUV, there are a few top choices to consider, including the 2022 Audi Q5. After all, the automaker claims that the Q5 is “the SUV other SUVs wish they could be.” Do other SUVs hope to have ridiculous defects that irritate consumers? The Audi Q5 lineup meets these expectations with a defective electrical system and malfunctioning back up prevention.

Problems with the Electrical System

As a luxury model, there’s every reason to assume that the electronics are up to par in the Q5. However, customers are highly disappointed after getting inside the SUV.

A user on KBB states, “I have been trying to set the ‘Key User’ on the car in order to use the MYAudi Audi Connect it always fail, On hold for about 50 min with support only to be told Audi knows there is an issue with 20-22 models but may be fixed in 1st or 2nd quarter of 2022. Now I no longer get traffic information because the “License has Expired” after owing the car for only 7 days. Most of the pages on their WEB site go in circles. For a company that claims to lead in technology their systems don’t work and their WEB site is a mess.”

There’s already a recall because of the faulty electrical system. NHTSA Campaign Number 21V947000 states that nearly 300,000 vehicles have a defect that allows spilled liquids in the rear seat to penetrate a body seam into the gateway control module. If liquid reaches this vital part, engine power is greatly reduced, leading to a higher chance of an accident. This isn’t a new problem at all. In fact, the same issues have occurred on models since 2018, with no resolution yet. With class-action lawsuits pending against Audi, it won’t be long before 2022 customers join in. With this in mind, no other SUV wishes to be the Q5 right now.

Problems with the Rear View Camera

Of all the safety systems in place with today’s cars, the back over prevention camera is arguably one of the most important. Yet, in the 2022 Audi Q5, the system just doesn’t work.

An NHTSA complaint reads, “The rear view camera fails during use. Frozen Images and black screens.”

It should come as no surprise to see that there’s already a recall on the back up camera. NHTSA Campaign Number 21V825000 shows that the Q5 is dealing with a massive software error. Because of this fault, the rearview image doesn’t display correctly. With the reduction to the driver’s view, there’s another risk to accidents for Audi owners. Sadly, this problem seems to be occurring on the entire Audi lineup, showing that there’s nothing special about the Q5, good or bad.

    Black control buttons below the silver buttons for the control screen. The printed icons on the buttons cannot be read in the daylight. These buttons should be a different color. The buttons are for parking aid, ESC, hold the vehicle on an incline, drive select, and the stop/ start function. These buttons need to have some kind of a colored decal do the can be seen. Very poor design. Audi needs to make decals so the owners can attach them to the buttons
