Audi's next salvo in its rapidly expanding softroader arsenal, the Q5, will be built in Ingolstadt, Germany. The announcement came this week, courtesy of Audi's Chariman of the Board, Dr. Martin Winterkorn. Production of the new model is expected to commence in 2008, involving about 1,700 workers. The decision is being touted by the automaker as an important demonstration of their commitment to their assembly operations in Germany. This is the second sign of the automaker's investment in its motherland, as Audi announced not long ago that its coming R8 supercar is to be build in Neckarsulm, a German city near Stuttgart.

      I bought a Audi A3 2.0T just from first of May 2006. It's extremely disappointed since just used a week and most of the time was under repairing including some big problem of saying that they need to replace the Gear Box. The distributor DCH Hong Kong refused my requestion of replacing a new car and I already reported to the Consumer Council Hong Kong for such a poor car performance and customer services provided by DCH.

      Cannot not find a way to complaint the manufactuer and the car distributor from any channel. What a AUDI SERVICE?!?
      WHAT A WORLD!

      Seeking help for any channels that can be available for COMPLAINTING SUCH A POOR CAR
      ------AUDI AND IT'S DISTRIBUTOR IN HONG KONG OR EUROPE HEADQUARTERS.

      If only other makers made cars in their homeland, there would be more pride and perhaps better quality.

      I like crossovers, since I loved full size station wagons. Nothing like the Pickup truck based Peugeot 504 wagon, or the last Buick Estate Wagon. Who needs an SUV or minivan, really? So, the cross-over is a lovely wagon shape revival in my mind. But this Audi is really lacking a distinct look, except for the damn pig snout. Actually, it looks like a pig-snouted, rebadged Pacifica...don't you think?
