2001 Audi allroad quattro Wagon AWD 4dr Wagon (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

The allroad has been flawless. Great
handling. Most impressive AWD system.
Gets me from the coast to the coldest
and snowiest places faster than any
other vehicle - for the third year in
a row. After 40k miles, it's proven
itself. Gas mileage has been 21.5mpg
average for all my driving - and I
love to accelerate!


Best Features

The greatest AWD system handles any condition confidently, Spectacular Engine, Solid feel, smooth ride, fantastic handling, luxurious but rugged interior, excellent gas mileage, Great looking wagon!


Worst Features

Audi should have a standard square tow hitch.

Review

I reviewed my car at 46k, now a follow-
up at 73k. The headaches are fewer, but
the car didn't shape up until after 50k
and MANY dealer visits. Audi put on
same tires as A8 and balanced them
right. Vibration gone. The brake rotors
warped after 23K more miles - Audi
refuses to help. 3 visits to fix leaky
w/washer system. It never ends. I love
this car, but never again.


Best Features

quattro is faultless in snow; interior is handsome; great for hauling gear; still turns heads; good handling, power.


Worst Features

Fewer coffee breaks at the factory; better training for dealer mechanics. Audi needs to get moving on quality and reliability.

Review

bought certified pre-owned. Owned car
for 6 months now. Very reliable-no
mechanical problems. Only issue was
getting use to transmission lag-I find
there is no turbo lag-the transmission
doesn't shift down fast enough (to
improve fuel economy) causing
lag/hesitation. This issue goes away
when you use the tiptronic shifter. I
also find the lag gets minimized if you
go easy on the gas pedal initially and
then lay into it. This also creates a
more linear power curve. Been driving
it around in NE winter storms. The all
wheel drive is capable, but not as sure
footed as my Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo
in the snow--the Jeep has a slight
edge.


Best Features

Great exterior look--does not look like a station wagon. Great interior layout. Great handling on wet/dry. Ability to adjust suspenstion height. Safety features such as side curtain airbags. Roomy interior.


Worst Features

Darker tint on rear windows for privacy. Ability to manually adjust suspension height to higher settings at higher speeds. Eliminate driver adapting automatic transmission--allow for manual setting of sport or regular modes on the automatic transmission.

Review

I love this car more than any others I
have ever owned. But the quality leaves
a little to be desired. At 5k miles,
the power steering pump blew up. At 10k
miles the waterpump cracked. Battery
kicked out at 12k miles. At 30k miles
the air suspension developed a leak -
one the dealer kept insisting they
could not replicate. All items were
eventually taken care of professionally
by Audi. But you have to wonder about a
car that listed at close to $50k new.


Best Features

Engine is great - plenty of power. The solar sunroof that circulate cabin air should be mandatory in the hot climates. Exterior and styling and wheels are still getting complements.


Worst Features

Doesn't handle that well in the corners. Tiptronic tranny is kind of useless and doesn't function that well in tiptronic mode - But it is great in full auto. There is an annoying "Boiing!" sound that comes from the front suspension sometimes when you hit bumps.

Review

This has been a great family car!!!!! My
husband is European and likes a car that he
can really "drive". This works for us, and yes,
we text drove everything out there. He drives
it with the tiptronic and it gets a bit better gas
milage. It is comfortable for long drives, has
been steady when driving on flooded and
windy roads; and still turns heads in the
preschool parking lot. An unexpected benifit
of raising the car has been less bending
needed when taking the children out of the
car!


Best Features

Being able to raise the car! Love the leg room in the back seat!


Worst Features

When I bought the car I was told that I could put in a third seat. Now I find I can't. I really need to be able to fit more children in the car. I'd also like a bit longer front seat.
