As some of you may know, we have a 2011 VW Jetta Sportwagen TDI that will very soon have to be returned to the dealer due to the Dieselgate scandal. Because of this, we needed to find a car that would replace it and hopefully be an upgrade. We test drove quite a few cars, one was a 2014 Audi Allroad, which my mom said she absolutely loved. However, it came with a price tag of $38,000 US, which is way more than we will be receiving in compensation for our VW. Because my mom liked it so much, I started looking around for other Allroads that were cheaper, and came across a 2013 that appeared to be in pristine condition, had lots of nice options, and only costed $26,000. I showed it to my parents, who decided it was worth a look, and we ended up buying it!

Sorry for these amateur pictures, my dad took it to work today and got back at around 5 pm, which because of Daylight Savings is pitch black outside :lol:

Nice! Welcome to the Audi club! We have a 2012 A4. They seem very similar on the inside. I like the Allroad better, but my parents don't like wagons for some reason. Congrats on the car?

We have a 2016 Audi A6 Allroad. I LOVE IT

My dad prefers the wagons as he can store things in the car easier than a sedan.

I think there are lots of Americans who do not favor wagons. The mindset tends to be that if you want a car with lots of cargo space, you get an SUV. As we had previously owned a diesel car, we are rather environmentally cautious, so we would like the best fuel economy possible while still having decent cargo room. However since gasoline is so cheap here, most people just buy giant trucks and SUVs because you get off-road capability, cargo room, and (at least the feeling of) safety.

Well, my dad finds it easier to load and unload from a lower height.

He has to deliver lots of boxes to a depot for shipment often.
