What was the best year for the Audi Allroad in terms of reliability, please? I am considering the purchase of a '03 manual 6spd with 55K miles. One owner and complete history of repairs looks good and trouble free (VIN: WA1YD64B63N017473).
Am I in for inevitable electrical and air suspention problems no matter what, OR is 5 years plenty to reveal any kinks?
Thanks for the help.
As a general rule, Audis seem to hold up very well. Sure there are problem with the leveling system, eventually on all of them that have it, but it's usually something like a line leaking where it goes into the strut...simple things like that usually, but if left un attended to they could turn into costly repairs.
As far as known problems on your car, the best thing I know to do in this situation is give you the list of recalls and TSB's on the car.
Just need to know if your engine is the 2.7 or 4.2? If you not sure about the engine size...Does it have turbo?

Reply to ase_master327's Post: It's the 2.7T 6spd manual. If the suspension comes out of aligned height across the 4 tires, is there something that will alert me to that specifically or is it just a general "maintenance" warning light? THanks.
you will get a warning light, if there is a problem in the system.
Anyways, here is the list I said I would give you. If you decide to get the car, keep it handy for future problems that might come up, then you can reference a number to the technician, that might help make things easier.
Also, if you know how many miles are on it, I can give you the next scheduled maintenance required for the car.
Reply to ase_master327's Post: 55.7K on the car to date. Thanks for that list. Next scheduled maintenance would be great and we can call it a night. (and I'll pay up!)
It's ALL good, I'm here to help.
Anyways, here you go!
Pretty good to go, at 60,000 it needs a good look over, a cabin air filter, and an oil change.
