Read up on the site: http://allroadfaq.com/main/

The major things are:
oil leaks (2.7 valve covers)
suspension compressor takes a long time (rebuild)
front control arms
timing belt (2.7)
torque converter (TIP trans)
leaking air bags

thanks for the reply,

so i picked it up while i was test driving it i heard clunking when going over bumps..correct me if I'm wrong (most of the time i am) but it sounded like control arm/ball joint. east fix? i picked the car up for a steal from an old couple so that didn't bother me much as i can replace them myself

thanks again

Yeah, it is most likely one or more of the eight front control arms. I had the same issue with mine when I bought it. It's not a terribly difficult job but a little time consuming if the original OEM arms are still on the car.

A couple tips if you plan on doing them yourself.

A day or two before you are going to do the work spray the pinch bolt (upper control arm bolt) with a bunch of PB Blaster or the like. Do this every day before you start taking things apart and it will save you a big headache.

Be sure to buy quality control arms for an allroad. The lower control arms are specific to the allroad so be sure that's what you're getting before you buy. I went with this kit and, while it is expensive, they are all OEM or OEM equivalent so they should last a good long time. I've read some of the aftermarket parts can fail much sooner.
