Default Is buying an old Audi Allroad Quattro a good idea?

I'm looking at buying an older & used Audi Allroad Quattro, either a 2.7T, SW, etc., under 9,000 dollars (probably about year 2001). All the cars i'm looking at look legit, and if the mechanic gives it the OK, does that mean it's worth the buy? I've heard many differences in opinion as to if the repairs are expensive or not, if they're reliable or not, etc. I've had an outback already and just looking around at different cars because I think the Audi looks great. Any insight would be great. Thanks.
Approx how much more are we looking at in parts, compared to subaru?

The AWD AUDI gets rather poor fuel mileage for a car of its size. Most repair parts have to be imported from Germany and tend to be expensive. Other than that, if the mechanic says it's good, then it's your money and your choice.

expensive cars are made with expensive parts.. that's why they are expensive. and when you need to replace those expensive parts.. guess what... it's expensive.

If your looking at an old audi because you really like the old ones.. and for whatever reason that's your thing.. great.. but if your looking at an old one because that's all you can afford. I would say, if this is going to be transportation you need to rely on, buy something more within your means. too many people buy cheap luxury cars because they want to have the appearance of money. or want the luxury but don't have the money, and then they get HUGE repair bills they can't afford because they dumped all their money into a car that wasn't all that good. For the same 9,000 you can get an EXCELLENT Honda civic or something that will have much more reliable life left in it.

but it's your money.

P.s.. though i'm sure your mechanic is good, do keep in mind that for a 50 dollar inspection, he's only going to check the most troubling spots... it doesn't mean a more serious and less common problem doesn't exist. they don't see everything.

If the old Audi condition is good there is no harm in buying. you can go head with it.

Audi's are very reliable, and yes the maintenance can get expensive and fuel expenses is also very high but its all parts specially engine is very comfortable but if you make sure its taken care of properly otherwise its very difficult to you for its care...
