2000 Audi TT Turbo 2dr Coupe


Review

I had always wanted a TT. It's a beautiful, timeless, distinctive design. Have had many problems with this car so far. Replaced the clutch @ 44k and the water outlet (common problem), $2,500. Then we had window lift mechanism issues, ($1,000). The gas door switch broke ($125), headlight washer -- (the front bumper has to be removed $400). Problems with the back-up lights, etc. Have read other forums that the timing belt can break unexpectedly. Buy a used one if you know how to work on cars. Edmunds repair estimates need to be adjusted upwards. However, the TT handles great and gets good MPG -- important in LA. Presents itself well anywhere. Easy to get in and out of.


Best Features

Very supportive seats. Good quality leather. Great styling. Wonderful interior space, good driver's position. Plenty of headroom. Decent handling, adequate power and frugal fuel economy. Hatch unusually roomy. Beautiful instrumentation and night lighting. Great AC system, decent stereo, etc.


Worst Features

Cheap plastic pieces. Blind spots. Needs better build quality. Transmission needs improvement. Seats need power adjust. Headlight assembly expensive. Back seat unuseable. Expensive maintenence on minor items. Need better reliability.

2000 Audi TT quattro Turbo 2dr Coupe AWD


Review

When I first took this car out, I was a little disappointed by its lack of pep. Supposedly this car has the same engine that they put into the VW GTI that year, the same GTI that my friend has. My friend's GTI definitely had more go-power, especially in 3rd gear. This car lacked that "mean" mentality even after dropping down from 4th to 3rd to get that extra rev boost. After coming off of a Honda Prelude, shifting seemed a bit sticky and lacked smooth transitions from 1st to 2nd especially. The car's handling was phenomenal even on wet roads and felt glued to the ground the entire way. I love this car because of its head-turning design, handling and ability to amuse!


Best Features

By far, the exterior design which received many awards for 2k including best design. It's one of the rare cars that kept, for the most part, its original amazing concept design. Often times we are blown away by concept designs but the company completely re-hauls the design prior to its release.


Worst Features

You don't really feel its boost until you reach higher RPMs or speeds. Which is surprising for an Audi/VW in that they usually have a broader range turbo than any other car out there. However there are plenty of aftermarket upgrades for those, like me, who want something a bit more sporty.

Review

Very nice car, interior and exterior. RARE car so gets good attention. 180 hp is not that strong but you're driving for style not for racing.


Best Features

Bose, interior/exterior especially exterior.


Worst Features

Better hp. Hardtop convo would make a big difference.

I wouldn't mind a few more HPs.

Review

I loved the design aspect of the TT. I've been through a few frustrating repairs, but overall I have greatly enjoyed this car and will be purchasing a new TT when the next generation makes it to showrooms. I would easily recommend the TT to anyone, with a side note of expensive repair bills, but it's German... all German cars are expensive to repair.


Best Features

Handling, seat heaters, auto leveling headlights.


Worst Features

A better sound system, fewer rattles, thicker hides for the seat bolsters.
