2000 Audi TT quattro Turbo 2dr Coupe AWD


Review

II've owned my TT for 8+ years and 115,000 miles. It's had it's share of problems and is not cheap to fix: dead water pump, broken steering rack, two broken ABS sensors, broken wheel bearing, dead ECU, misfiring cylinder, two broken instrument clusters, blown Bose speaker, etc. I still feel its one of the best looking cars on the road and it STILL turns heards today eight years later but it's dying at only 115,000 miles and I need to sell it and something at least a little bit reliable. There is nothing like this car out there anymore though. The new TTs just aren't the same.


Best Features

A TT with quattro is an absolute joy to drive and simlply amazing in the rain and snow. Eight years after I bought it, it still turns heads and I get comments on the street. Large trunk with fold-down seats makes it practical too.


Worst Features

Better quality all around on Audi parts. Sensors fail all the time, the plastic inside breaks. The shocks are junk as where the original tires. The quality of the leather on the seats is sub-par.

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.

This is a hot car... it turns heads everywhere I go. Also, on the functional side it is very reliable, no problems at all with it.

The looks and the quality of the materials... everything is very solid.

I wouldn't mind a few more HPs.
