2004 Audi Allroad Quattro Problems
Erratic turn signal operation can be a result of a failing turn signal flasher relay which will require replacement.
Vacuum leaks, oxygen sensor failure, and catalytic converter efficiency faults can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate.
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.
Engine oil leaks are common from the valve cover gaskets and camshaft chain tensioner gasket.

2004 Audi Allroad Quattro Reviews
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.
