  • There are worse vehicles, the Audi all road probably has one of the best rides I’ve ever experienced in a car but the 2.7 T is the engine to be avoided, the 2.5 TDI is an excellent engine, most vehicles with air suspension are money pits Most pumps and air ride systems are supplied by Wabco, continental, Arnott etc, when they go wrong, it’s often at least £500 a corner after parts and labour, valve body’s corrode and leak

  • I owned a B5 S4 6spd with full exhaust, downpipes and Tial 605 turbos. 550 hp and I LOVED the exhaust tone on the 2.7T. That car was great and even with all the mods, could still manage 30mpg with AWD on road trips! Nogaro blue. Miss it so much! Sold to pay for home repairs! Dang life ruining fun!

  • HA - HA - HA !!! 😁 Well.... I got my Audi All Road 2.5 TDI V6 2001 model since almost 6 yrs... The car was used, one owner... The mileage was 119 000 ... Now is 189 000 and no problems whatsoever apart from the regular ones that are due during the years... Recently change the air compressor, front and one of the rear calipers...One of the air suspension is still the original one /Air spring only, not sure about the pneumatic inside/ All the joints original as well ....Now is already due to change them all...😁/ well is like 19 yrs of NON reliability as well...😁/ Never top up engine oil, never top up coolant.... I'm service the car myself every 10 000 miles, filters, engine oil etc.... /30min altogether no rush, using the Jack that car is supplied/ ...Fuel filter changed only once, the moment a bought the car during my first service, now after 5 yrs will be the second time ...Never change transmission's oil.../Exactly what Audi recommend ...The moment you do it, the moment the problems starts... / Cambelt kit once every 4 yrs or 50 k miles... /Did it twice already, the moment I bought the car and after 50 k/ ...by the way that's the only time you need to "take off everything at the front" /Well... I heard THAT guy complaint and appear to be a huge issue 😁/ Now... If someone can show me similar car that's "NOT" reliable like that one... First of all, I'll call him a brother and...Second of all, I'll buy him a pint or two instantly haha... 🍺🍺🍺 Even the best car ever existed WITHOUT good maintenance will be " NON RELIABLE"... Or buying NON original replacement stuff like the "problematic air suspensions" the guy mention.../and we're talking about Arnott here, NOT Continetal...the price is total different as well....well reliable or non reliable is what is important here...😁/ I'm pretty sure will be so funny watching that Clown guy shooting his arguments in front of the whole crew of Audi Allroad engineers....Isn't it ?!? 😁

Personally, I like it, but it is a little overkill. I have had one turbo fail and it was a bit of a pain to replace, but I love the thing so much I can look past it. Never had the air suspension fail, and I love it to pieces.

  • My dad had an all road in like 2012 bought it as a winter beater, and other than it having a small oil leak it wasn’t that bad of a car. It was alright on gas, quick and great to drive. In the snow the thing was an absolute unit, hugged the ground well and the awd system worked great. Only problem was the heated seat was faulty and you’d end up burning your ass every time you used it.

  • Oh I forgot. I had to replace the alternator and in order to do that you need to remove the front clip. Disconnect inter coolers, entire front of car is on a rail system so the front clip slides out when everything is disconnected. It is still a 6-8hr job.only reason I got rid of it at about 90k was the sunroof drain got clogged and leaked water inside twice so after a while the headliner started to drop from the humidity. Can’t deal with a droopy headliner. Otherwise I loved that car. Was a great off-road rally estate.

  • I’ve had three Audi allroads..... my 2002 had 189,000 miles never had a problem except an oil leak..... my first one was a 2001 Audi allroad the cuts rusted off however I wanted a new exhaust on it anyways because these cars sound amazing it has 150,000 Miles and I’ve never had an issue I had to change the timing belt however I didn’t take the whole from of the car off actually you pop a few clips and the front bumper and radiator slides down for a “service mode” and it’s as easy as that these cars are not unreliable. You have to maintain them. That’s the common misconception..... these cars are great and a blast to drive. The Quattro is unmatched I could drive up my very steep drive way on bald tires and still make it up.

  • Not to be a triggered fanboi, but throwing an Audi into "service position" (removing the front end) isn't that difficult. It's meant to be done, and is just a few bolts, Then you can swing everything off to the side and have good access to most items in the front. It's a 20 minute process after you figure out how it works. I found it to be incredibly helpful over the years on my multiple projects. Love the 2.7T, but it is a nightmare. I'll give him that.

  • This reporting is so biased I wonder what is the objective here. Personally I owned a Allroad 2.7 T from 2001 to 2013. Drove it in 4 different countries on terrible roads. Never had any issue. Then gave it away to a friend who still drives the car today. So one could do a similar review and say exactly the contrary to everything that was said in this video. I think the problem is upkeep rather than generic vehicle quality. Toyota is a reliable brand in general. Still I know drivers that will run them to the grave in a few years. So please do not make blanket statements and body language that clearly shows you don’t like the Audi brand. That is fine with all of us Audi lovers.

Only meant to be driven in the rain on the way to the office or pick up their brats at private school, not off road. Whoever owned this one beat it to shit.

Two weeks later he msgs her for about $500 less, have her ask why and he says trans is acting funny. Thought we dodged a bullet, and bought a very nice, fully optioned, 2006 Eddie Bauer Explorer, with a v6 and 250k miles...not knowing about the timing chain issue and having to pull the engine to change the rear chain. Wasn't about to drop $1.5-$2k on something that cost $3k. It grenaded a year later.

  • German cars are downright awful in every way. I think in the mid-90's they were almost pretty good for a few years.. maybe. Terrible. Just terrible. Never buy a car that has a "doggie divider" (meaning the owners thought it'd be a neat idea to carry their dog with them all over the place). Stinky. Nope. No thanks. Never.

  • These Allroad’s are super popular amongst a younger set of driver’s here in the PNW. They are really nice driving cars. The guys buying them typically spend the money on performance suspension and tuning parts. They’ve accepted that the nose comes off for about 50% of the service work. At between $3-5k, they are well built cars that are quiet and generally don’t rattle-they just have reliability challenges that can be eradicated. These guys relish in removing all the problems and then enjoy these things. I think they’ve depreciated so heavily, they’ve found a following, so many are being saved and enjoyed. This one is pretty rough by PNW standards.

  • I think you are being a little hard on the allroad... They have their issues for sure but are far from "the worst car ever". One major complaint was the ZF 5HP19 transmission - used in all sorts of cars from all sorts of manufactures, is actually a good transmission - but there is a design flaw where a drum can crack, causing oil pressure loss, leaving you on the side of the road. The sad thing is the part is cheap, the replacement cost is not. It is DIY repairable though - I did mine in my garage and I am most def not a mechanic. I was able to pull the motor/trans with a cherry picker. Not a big deal. I just bought the rebuild kit and a new revised drum for the transmission and its better than new. Since I did a full overhaul of the trans, the cost in parts was about $1000. All of the frictions and steels were still within spec but I changed them just because I was there. This on a car that went 200K miles before it failed. The motor and turbos are still fine and I didn't touch them. Car is now at 210K miles and going strong. As for normal maintenance like timing belts - it is actually quite easy. You are wrong about the design - the C5 is designed so the front radiator support is easily removable. It takes about 30 minutes to get into "service position", and from there, timing belt replacement requires only 1 special tool and is easy to do. You are well advised to change valve cover gaskets at the same time, and replace the thermostat housing with a metal one if yours is plastic. With that, these motors (both 2.8L and 2.7L turbo) are bullet proof and do not leak. The fact that the whole front of the car is removable makes removing the motor/trans possible with a cherry picker. On the air suspension, the rubber air springs wear out over time. They are not that hard or expensive to replace. On the bright side, the strut/shocks never wear out. The big fail item is the Wabco suspension pump. Again, this same pump is used by many different manufactures and it is a pretty robust item, but it needs periodic service. A chinese rebuild kit is $20. Just do it every 2 years or so. Its also easy. Bottom line is if you can DIY (and all of the big issues on this car are DIY solvable) this is a stylish, fun, reliable, and capable car. I am pulling a 3500 pound trailer with mine and it works great. It pulls far better than my V8 powered Explorer. And - as you noted, the worst car is being built now. Cars are so complex and technology changes so fast that there will be no 20 year old cars worth owning - no matter how nice they were new. cheers, and audi on

It got you where you wanted to go even if it was overheating, but man I was waiting for the day it wouldn't get me somewhere. Luckily I sold it before that happened. I had replaced basically the whole coolant system on my A4 and it still had coolant issues leaking or overheating. The coolant system was designed horribly and was not made to last. The pipe on the back of the engine was plastic and would crack every 6months and if it didnt crack, it would break the seal and develop a leak. Just a headache and a half.. Loved every minute in this car but would never get one again haha!

  • I couldn't disagree more with the reputation of the car. I purchased mine new in 2005 and now have 147,000 miles on it. I purchased the extended service contract so for the first seven years, I paid $100 for a set of new front air struts and they had to fix a recurrent airbag light problem which ultimately meant disassembling a connector under the seat and hard-wiring it. post-warranty I did the timing belt myself at 75,000 miles per the maintenance manual and I do regular oil changes. If owners are waiting to 100K miles as the host mentions, to replace timing belts, there is a problem there. I will admit that there are cooling system issues with plastic parts and all the heat in the engine bay. Just shy of 100,000 miles, the water pump started leaking a bit and I paid my shop to do it, the timing belt, and everything else in there because you don't open up the front end and not do everything, regardless of mileage. I had a leak develop in the underside of the bellows where the Y-Pipe joins ($75 part, .5 repair) and nothing else until 130,000, when I developed a shimmy and replaced the front end bushings, control arms, etc. I also replaced the passenger side CV axle and the rear air struts. My interior is in far better condition than the car in the video; my LCDs are perfect unless it's really hot outside. I have replaced a few switches due to wear. I never had a door ding on the car until I moved to TX and I have had to do the headlights a couple of times. Recently, the plastic thermostat housing has developed a leak and the cooling fan (for the A/C) is going out ($50 part new). I have a box with new Timing Belt, Water Pump, Thermostat, Housing, etc as well... all in for all the parts is around $400.This car has never been on the back of a tow-truck and is absolutely epic in the snow where other vehicles with higher price tags and "pedigree" have been immobilized. I have NEVER had a Turbo issue, either leak or failure and the transmission is only now showing signs that it needs another service (parts are in the aforementioned box and included in the total). I also have had an APR 91 octane Chip since it came off warranty and it is pushing 307hp and averages 20 mpg (1.4 mpg better than before the chip). These cars aren't unreliable; they require MAINTENANCE. Most people drive-to-destruct or ignore recommended maintenance intervals (And if you've ever taken an American car to its dealer for service, it's obvious... they are charlatans... they come up with all kinds of "recommendations" that aren't even in the manual. Maintain your German Car and though it costs some dough, it costs a heck of a lot less than repairs. By doing the work myself, I have saved thousands in shop labor costs. Most of the work is incredibly uncomplicated... if you know "lefty-loosie"... you can do it. Thanks for showing that this car is better than its reputation.

  • I still have my '03 A4 that I bought new, still my daily driver. It has been as reliable as my SR5 Toy was that I got 300k out of. Even If it dies tomorrow I figure I got my $$$ worth. The interiors were a decade ahead of their time at the price point, and for the first 2 yrs of its life ppl would come up and compliment the looks of the car. haha, not anymore. I always loved the look of the Allroad but was above my budget at the time. Glad I avoided it. Air suspensions... never.
