Default What's the best year allroad?

My mom's thinking about picking up a certified used allroad, in tiptronic (no, I can't talk her into a 6-speed). Is there a better year to look for? Any important model year changes I should check for? Do these cars suffer the same turbo-death problems as the B5 S4s? Anything to watch out for with the adjustable suspension? She'll likely keep this car for the next 5 years, at least, so I don't want to have her buy something that'll give her lots of problems down the road. Thanks!

Default Early 2002 for the 2.7t

'02 had things like the cd-changer cable pre wired and HP2 calipers. 02 also had heated steering wheel. Turbo's can be an issue but better than the s4.

Were all '01s fitted for 3rd row? I thought only if ordered as such. How to tell?

...nothing special about the 2001 in that regard. It was an option on the Allroad from 01 to 03. Fairly rare in general, even more rare in a 6-speed manual.

Ah, that's what I thought. I guess I read mjposner's post wrong.
