Hi, I'm looking at purchasing a 2007 Q7 V6 with about 45,000 miles on it. I was wondering, does this vehicle have a timing belt or chain, and what is the recommended interval for changing it.

From Audi Maintenance schedule:

Timing Belt replace at 110K miles (175 km) on Audi TT 2.0T with front wheel drive and A3 2.0L TDI only. Check condition of timing belt tensioning system, dampening pulleys, and idle pulleys and replace if necessary

My Volvo XC90 T6 AWD recommended timing belt replacement at 105K miles. Sounded good so I did it, better safe than sorry, broken timing belt can cause alot of expensive engine damage.

there is a timing chain on 4.2 8 cyl and 3.2 6 cyl gasoline engines. But if the engine oil change have not been followed they need to be changed also.
