Review: Audi A6 Allroad (2000 – 2006)


Classy styling, useful height-adjustable suspension and surprisingly capable both on road and off it.

The air suspension bladders can give up the ghost and cause considerable pain to your bank balance.

Audi A6 Allroad (2000 – 2006): At A Glance

In year 2000, Audi launched its first A6 Allroad model.

This was essentially an Audi A6 Avant based 4x4 with either 180 bhp 2.5 litre TDI V6 or 250 bhp twin-turbo 2.7 litre petrol V6. Choice of 6-speed manual or 5-speed Tiptronic, with low-ratio box available as a factory fit extra on the 6-speed.

It had height-adjustable suspension that lowers for the motorway or raises for the rough, giving as much ground clearance as a Range Rover for serious off-roading.

Automatic gearbox issues with Audi A6 allroad

My Audi A6 Allroad (2000 model) has a couple of issues. The first problem is with the gear selector indication light. Occasionally it lights up orange and looks as if all the gears are selected. The second issue is with the drive. Sometimes the car loses all power, but if I put it into neutral and it switch off, then on, the drive comes back again. Any ideas?
That's a 5-speed traditional torque converter auto, not a multitronic or an s-tronic and it's old. I think it's probably no more than electrical contacts in the selector quadrant, but the box could probably do with a change of fluid anyway so I'd get it to a member of http://www,
