I have a 2001 allroad MT6 that is a fine vehicle.   At the time of purchase,
no other vehicle (IMHO) could provide the same package: AWD, 2.7TT engine,
Avant, six speed manual transmission,good lines, towing capablity,etc.

The big issue with allroads is the adjustable air suspension. It can be very
expensive to troubleshoot and/or replace; however, now there are options
like swapping to coilovers.

Has anyone owned an Audi allroad?  Of specific interest are 2004 and
2005 models.  I've had my '91 200 v since new and now that it looks
like we'll finally be escaping Manhattan for Vermont, I'm keeping it
and I'll finally be able to use it as a daily driver.  However my wife
will need a car (no standard shift for her) and I was thinking of
another Audi.  I'm probably out of my mind for considering another
Audi since I'm no wrencher and my 200 has had its share of problems,
but they've all be resolved and EVERYTHING (with the exception of the
rear seat cigarette lighter plug) works.  In 2005 a dealer gave me an
allroad as a loaner (they weren't that generous when considering what
I ended up paying in repairs for the 200) and I really enjoyed the
allroad.  I was thinking that it would be a great car for the wife.  I
know a Honda or Subaru would be incredibly less expensive to maintain,
but I'm tempted to go with another Audi.  I won't start a collection
of Audis like some of you, my 200 I've had nearly 19 years and it's
the only Audi I've had.  So, if any of you have some comments/
experience to pass along about the allroads, send me a PM.  Thanks.
