2001 Audi allroad quattro 2.7T from North America


Exciting to drive, Depressing for repairs


Tie rod ends.

Exhaust sensors (4).

Torque converter.

Secondary exhaust fan.

Wiper fluid reservoir cracked and leaking.

Driver information electronic display fading.

Auto-leveling headlamps... $6700 estimate to fix everything wrong.

Just took the car in to get new tie rods, and found all these other issues.

General Comments:

So much fun to drive. Very confident in the snow. Accelerates quickly up the mountains. Feels safe at high speeds and in crappy weather.

Very comfortable, even had heated rear seats! I am going to fix the car and drive it for many more years. I just wish it wasn't so troublesome.

1996 Audi allroad quattro A4 V6 from North America


Audi Quattro A4


Nothing major has gone wrong. I have been blessed with a good car so far.

General Comments:

I have been very blessed with my 96 Audi A4 Quattro.

It just now rolled 66,000, and no major issues yet.

I have had no major problem with my car except for Temp. sensor and seal on the heater unit, which didn't cost that much.

I love driving this car! It is really sporty car. I would recommend this car to my friends.

2001 Audi allroad quattro 2.7 from North America


Unreliable, costly, and time consuming


Purchased car in Sept 2004 with less than 30,000 miles.

- Passenger seat auto adjustment broken. Had to ride in reclined position until it was fixed.

- Brakes engaged while starting car and lock. Had brake cylinder replaced.

- Brake issue re-occurs.

- Car shakes at speeds over 50 mph. Occurred three times for no apparent reason.

- Probably bad luck - but had tire blow out hitting a pot hole. First - front driver side. Then following month, front passenger side.

General Comments:

Owned car less than 1 year, and has been in for service 8 times!

I have a 3 year old Audi allroad. Certainly fun to drive, but the lack of reliability detracts from the product.

Radio failed in year one.

The electronic controller of the suspension system failed.

3 of the 4 air bag suspension units failed (very expensive)

Flat spot in the acceleration took multiple visits to the dealer to fix.

Excessive tyre wear has had all tyres replaced.

There does seem to be a pattern developing here...

2000 Audi allroad quattro 2.7T from Hungary


High performance junk


1. Electronic control center of the air suspension system TWICE (1st year and 3rd year).

2. Front brake disks deformed TWICE (2nd year and 4th year).

3. 2 pieces of gas charged air suspension spring + suspension control arms.

4. Electronic radiator cooling fan defect (nearly burning down the engine).

5. Burnt leather seat, due to a short circuit in the seat heating (nearly burning down the vehicle).

6. Main mechanical radiator cooling fan, which broke during operation, damaging the cooling radiator and the visco clutch. Again, nearly burning down the engine, and also could have damaged the whole engine.

7. Stub axle wore out in 90000 kms

General Comments:

Fast and comfortable, but a very, very, very unreliable and costly car.

Front suspension tends to vibrate on dumpy roads, so anti blocking system is impeding proper braking performance. Very disturbing and sometimes dangerous!!!

After sales service also poor.

2003 Audi allroad quattro 2.7bi turbo from North America


Does everything right including performance, style, and fantastic versatility


One month after purchase the car spent 6 weeks at the dealer with a computer glitch. A loaner car was provided for the entire time. Three months in there was a transmission problem, and the car spent another two and a half weeks at the dealer again a loaner car was provided.

General Comments:

Those two problems aside, the car is wonderful to drive.

The 2.7l bi-turbo is fast, and responsive with handling like a sports car.

The look of the car makes it stand out without being offensive, and the interior is extremely tasteful.

I love that it can be purchased with a six speed manual transmission, a rare thing in luxury cars of this caliber.
