    2016 Q5 3.0T - Emissions Scandal?

    Hey guys -

    Just traded in my 2010 A4 for a CPO 2016 Q5 3.0T in Daytona Gray with Black Optics, tech, etc.. Took me three months to find it locally - beyond stoked.

    Well aware of VW's Dieselgate, but I'm just learning it was extended to the 3.0T gas engines.

    Looks like the software update is available per other threads here. I'll be speaking with my salesperson about it tomorrow, however, I'm curious if there's anything I should do as a new owner? Obviously I'd love any payouts from Audi (haha!) but not expecting anything as a new owner this far out of the court filings.

    Just fishing for advice from recently acquired '14-'16 Q5 owners, or anyone with more info. Thanks!

    No. 24CO is an ECM software update to prevent the cats from prematurely burning out. The update was loaded if your Q5 was purchased at an Audi dealer.

    Enjoy the new car!
