I am an A4 2.8 owner, now in need of a wagon vs. sedan. When I first learned of the allroad model I was intrigued. However, after learning a little more about the airsuspension issues, among other problems - it seems I would be an idiot to buy an allroad. So my question is, if you have the following criteria is there any good argument to consider a used allroad:
* I need a wagon, want reliability and value that over 'performance' (i.e. i'll never do any 'tuning'), have heavy winters here so quattro / AWD is great, but I do have a large 4x4 truck, so don't think I'd really need or use the allroad's extra clearance capabilities *
Why should someone with this criteria consider an Allroad over an Avant ?
I would stay clear of a used Allroad unless you are real good with a wrench or have deep pockets to have it repaired when it breaks.
Put it this way , i have a repair shop & love to see these cars come in. They are job security.
You would be better off with a Q5.
BTW our 93 100 wagon pulls through the snow better than our F3504x4.
Edit was done to correct bad spelling. Sorry better at fixing cars then spelling & grammar!
