If you want an Audi equivalent of your Forester then I suggest you buy an
Allroad and not an A6 Avant. The Allroad is basically and A6 Avant on stilts
and can probably be fitted with underbody protection if it doesn't already
True, but most owners of Allroads (including myself) take good care of them.
Lots of people on this group have other Audis 15-20 years old and are still
In Canada, only about 300-400 were sold every year it was sold, making it
somewhat uncommon and currently in demand as a used vehicle. When it was
originally on the market, it was the best crossover vehicle out there (not
only in appearance, but certainly in performance).
No idea, sorry. I'm in the UK where we get the new Allroad. Ugly beast to be

Have you asked AoA if they plan to re-introduce the Allroad at some point?
The current A6 will probably be in production until 2010 so quite a but of
life left in the model.
You quickly get used to larger ground clearance. For example, last weekend I
went to a beach...all parking slots on pavement were occupied, so I parked
my Subaru on a dirt road with small rocks - no problem...had it been a
regular car I would have scratched its bottom for sure.
But I'm tired of Subarus because their automatic transmissions suck - and
I'm too lazy to drive stick.

hard to get a rugged Audi (except for their SUV, of course).
