My wife has always liked the original Allroad and still comments whenever we see a nice one.
I'm terrified of a potential money pit.
I brought up the idea of buying one and going through all the mechanical systems in a previous thread. The idea was to fix any potential issues hoping to have a reliable car for a few years. That was shot down.
Yet I still look..
This popped up locally today for $1500 obo:
2002 Audi Allroad Quattro
137k mi well maintained mechanically with receipts:
Recent new brakes, rotors, sensors, valve gaskets, tbelt, front end tie rods, idler arms,etc
$500 ecu upgrade
Michelin 90k rated tires with 70% left
Has minor front end damage from recent deer impact (see pic) no engine damage and car was running perfectly.
Doesn't look to bad. Hood, fender, head light. Maybe a little repair to the core support.
Nice maintenance history. Seems like it could be a deal.
Am I way off base on what the body repairs entail?
Are any of the parts ridiculously expensive?
Should I run far away?
