Thinking of buying an Allroad, anyone seen this one?
« on: December 19, 2013, 08:35:22 am »
Hi all,

I'm thinking about buying this All road and wonder if anyone here has looked at it by chance?

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=673230660

Or are any members close by to stop past and take it for a drive and let me know your thoughts?. Auction ends tonight, I'm trying to fond someone to do an inspection but might be hard at this late stage.

The cam belt was replaced in August, invoice for $1300. Seems odd to be repo'ed so soon after that!

Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Quin

Ditto.

Better off with an Outback.

Thanks,

I've had an outback, I need a 7 seater and don't want a people mover van again. I also want side and curtain airbags which you don't get in a Jap car at the same price.

I recently sold our XC70 Volvo so in a similar vein to the all road. Looking for a goodie with much of its servicing done etc.

If the air suspension plays up you can fit the spring kits and them its just as reliable as a A6 but look cooler.
