2000 Audi allroad quattro A6 2.7T from North America
High performance, but poor reliability with many bugs yet to be fixed
Both driver and passenger side windows needed the guides replaced.
The instrument panel become hard to read as the letters appeared to streak and darken at the edges.
The GPS stopped working after the dealer replaced the instrument package.
The sunroof guides broke.
The rear window shade started to bind and was replaced after the second complaint.
The fuel gage started acting intermittent and it was replaced.
The front bumper was destroyed while making a right turn onto a street with an average size dip.
The windshield wiper washer fluid hose came off and drained all the fluid from the tank.
My AM band on the radio went dead.
My windshield wipers sometimes won't start unless I put switch to full speed.
The check engine light has come on numerous times and each time I am given some nondescript reason which always includes the phrase "and we reset a bunch of codes".
Need to replace Oxygen sensors just after 3 years.
The climate control fan (s) have developed an intermittent chirp sound at some combination of rotation speed and temperature.
The transmission occasionally appears to slip and then engage with a hard thump.
The car is fun to drive when it's not at the Audi dealer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Can't get a diesel Allroad in North America, or a Diesel Audi for that matter.
The only new models that are offered in diesel are the VW Rabbit, and Jetta, the only other diesel options are 3/4 and 1 ton American Pick up Trucks. Soon Ford will be releasing a Land Rover inspired Diesel engine in the F150 (1/2 ton) and diesel is no cheaper than gasoline here, and in most cases is more expensive, but it does still yield better fuel economy.
Sorry you had such bad luck with your allroad. Question though; you're say it is allroad 2000 model year, but they did not start selling allroads in the USA till 2001.
If it breaks or doesn't function properly, on a regular basis, it is a VW or Audi, German Engineered product. They have been working on the same issues for 20 + years and still haven't managed to fix them.
