What would you recommend?
I currently drive a Volvo V50 T-5 AWD. It is my all purpose vehicle for commuting and
carrying a variety of things. Though it is a bit small-ish on the inside, it offers nice
acceleration and handling, as well as decent fuel efficiency.
I live in CO and am considering a change to a first generation Audi Allroad. Given all that
has been written about the 2001-2005 Audi Allroad, particularly the problems with the air
suspension (and other costly repairs) and poor fuel efficiency, would your recommend
against looking for a used model in good condition with low mileage?
I would recommend against it, for the reasons you already mentioned. Audi's can quickly turn into moneypits when there's a problem with them, the allroads in particular are known for their costly repairs.
You AUDI know better
I have had 3 Audi's and now have a Q5 (2009, Original owner) and have had no problems with it/them at all. Yea of course if something goes wrong and you have to pay for repairs it gets costly, but what car repair doesn't?
