2001 Audi allroad quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
I purchased the Certified Allroad to replace my wifeís 1999 Lexus RX300 that had zero problems in 90000 miles (65000 when bought). My wife passed away from cancer and it was emotionally difficult for me to drive her car. I thought the Audi would serve a dual purpose of SUV for camping and nice transportation for travel to my children who live several hours away in snowy regions. I underestimated the enormous unreliability. In 18000 miles, itís had problems with the suspension system (very pricey), the cooling system (shop for 10 days after very frightening breakdown), windshield wipers, transmission, electric windows, airbag system, trim falling off or breaking. Audi has been no help.
Engine has performed well.
Audi has horrible reliability/quality problems - for a premium luxury brand, they have a lot of work to do to catch up to Lexus. Car needs to actually get the gas mileage which is quoted.
