The old 6 speed DQ250 was a 40k interval, don’t know what the new 7 speeder (DQ380??) is. Double check that with VW because the old DQ250 has to be done every 40k or else risk disaster.

I was a Volvo owner for a long time before changing to an Audi SQ5 after getting an even bigger caravan and our poor abused XC70 dying a bit of a death at 192k miles. It was a 2009 XC70 D5 185 SE...

My only concession is that it’s the pearl white so it does look nice in the sun I suppose. It does sound good with the Eberspacher active sound unit doing an uncanny job of hiding the diesel clatter....

My 2014 Audi SQ5 has paper thin mats, both fronts worn through in under 60k miles. Best ones were in my Volvo XC70 which had only minor foot dents after 210k miles.
