2003 Audi allroad quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
This car is now 7 years old, approaching 100K miles, and still looks and drives like new! I like this car so much I'm willing to tolerate its high maintenance; I recently needed a new clutch and brakes; tires last for one year; the 105K maintenance is due soon ($$$). I have owned a BMW X5 and a Subaru Outback with similar functional images, but there's really no comparison to this Audi. It's a silly car in a way: the manual trans's first gear is so tall that this car is a clutch-burner off-road and on boat ramps. I use this car to pull a boat trailer, haul bikes, kayaks, camping and skiing equipment, and drive fast, especially in the snow. My adult kids like to borrow it when they're in town
6 speed manual; lots of power; attractive appearance; amazing durability of fit and finish; AWD; trailer towing capability; tough finish on roof; 4 heated seats
Start making them again! Please! Otherwise I'll need to keep this one running until the wheels fall off.
