Audi Allroad Quattro Problems
Erratic turn signal operation can be a result of a failing turn signal flasher relay which will require replacement.
The digital display portion of the instrument cluster may fail. Our technicians tell us the entire instrument cluster will need to be replaced to correct this concern.
Clogged drains can allow rainwater to accumulate in the plenum tray (at the base of the windshield). The water may leak into the vehicle's interior, brake booster, or electrical components, which can lead to major problems. Our technicians recommend keeping the tray clear of leaves, pine needles, and other debris.
A problem with the torque converter can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate.

The ABS light flashes while making right hand curves at higher speeds inhibiting driving, but is fine on left hand curves; feels as if the braking system is trying to slow down the car.

I JUST FIXED MY AIR SUSPENSION LEAK For 12$.... Originally

to Allroad fans,
"I had a leak in the front left air suspension, just put some Slime tire sealant (just unscrew the red wire(air hose)squeeze half a bottle of Slime) it fixed my air leak and the suspension works great! The dealer was asking 1700$ for it, I did it for 12$..."
- i found the above awesome post in Audiworld and many thanks- to the original person who shared this info... it really works!(i want to add that some would suggest removing the suspension rod to shake and spread the seal after squeezing in the Slime - - instead, i drove my allroad on the freeway and drove over several over several small lane-divider bumps-does the same thing- no more leaks!) ... i saved that 1700$ i would have spent.. it is now in my emergency/vacation fund. (...i really like this allroad!- i have two 2005 2.7Turbo ~ 1 black and 1 silver....they are extremely fast-like lightning passing-fast on the freeways.
-drive safely my fellow allroad fans.
great car. stylish, durable and fast. would buy another in a heartbeat.
Always keep the car on level one suspension height around town, and it should last a very long time. Only raise it up when on dirt, snow, or other natural disaster conditions.
Where else can you get Porsche passing power on the freeway and rural mountains in complete luxury? This car is capable of some very incredible things, for your money spent. In snowy areas - the allroad tracks with confidence and aplomb without chains, while everybody else's 2WD is slipping and sliding everywhere. Try driving up a 25% rocky, rutted hill without spinning out. The allroad does it with the ease of a Dune Buggy.
Every thrill has its cost. The Audi allroad puts a wide grin on my face that's simply priceless. Life is too short to be driving uninspiring and boring vehicles...you only live ONCE - make it count!!!
The 4.2 V8 is a very durable engine, and with the bulletproof drivetrain, this car should last anyone a good long time. That is, as long as you can keep up with all the wear-and-tear parts as they inevitably give out. Hoses and suspension components will crack and leak, especially in cold weather (but that's the trade off here for a car that's virtually unstoppable in deep snow). Parts are expensive because of the car's uniqueness, doubly so on cars with the V8 (it uses parts not found on any other Audi) instead of a V6. Can't argue with that V8 exhaust note and low-end torque, though!
The interior is standard Audi brilliance, and aside from a few scuffs, my example is in excellent condition after five years and 85,000 miles.
