Audi’s C5 allroad wasn’t the first tall all-wheel drive wagon to hit the market; AMC claimed that crown with the Eagle well before Audi’s Quattro even hit the market. But it somehow defined the luxury do-anything segment and was unique in the German marques; Audi brought massive amounts of computational power, height-adjustable air suspension, a wide-body flare kit, twin-turbocharged power and even a manual gearbox. It was awesome. It was popular. But, it broke so much that even MacGyver was left stranded.
Still, find a nice one and these offer a lot for relatively short money. They’re quick, comfortable, and capable. As long as you’re willing to do some wrenching and order lifetime warranty parts from FCP Euro, they can be made reasonably reliable. And there is still a pretty avid community of supporters, though truth told nice examples are dwindling in number.

This Alpaca Beige Metallic with two-tone Ecru and Cricket leather upholstery example sure looks nice. It’s got the optional two-piece-look wheels, which were a $1,000 option, heated front and rear seats (another $550), Bose sound, rear parking sensors (part of the Premium Package), and a few more top-tier options. Zoom in and there’s expected wear on a 20-year-old suburban warrior wagon, but it still looks quite presentable. There’s no word on what service has been performed; the timing belt and air suspension are the expensive items, as are turbocharger replacements. The asking price to me seems probably a little high given the lack of information on these expensive items to fix, but if they were all taken care of it wouldn’t be a bad price all in all – manual examples are trading for even more than the asking price here. I think the appreciation for this model will continue into the future.
