2023 A7 Sportback Reliability

The 2023 Audi A7 hasn't been subject to any recalls at the time of writing, but 2022 models were recalled twice for a control module shutdown that can reduce engine power and an inoperative rearview camera display. Still, this is an improvement on the seven recalls listed for 2021 models, with the same issues from 2022 cropping up here, along with fuel gauge inaccuracies, a potentially misaligned rear axle, a seatbelt locking retractor malfunction, weak rear axle lock nuts, and passenger airbags that may deploy incorrectly.

If reliability is a concern, the A7 comes with a four-year or 50,000-mile basic warranty and a drivetrain warranty that is valid for the same period.
