2001 Audi TT Coupe 225hp Quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I've been driving an Audi TT 225 Quattro Coupe for almost three years now. I have had nothing but pleasure from it! Not a single problem other than those I caused myself by driving too fast! It corners like it is on rails! Everyone loves it. I get 28 mpg, driving like a fool most of the time.


Favorite Features

The looks, handling, and performance are unbeatable, but the way it handles the snow and ice surprised even me. It is like a snow plow!


Suggested Improvements

None required!

2001 Audi TT Coupe 180hp Quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I bought the car new to be a winter vehicle in addition to my Porsche(hense the Quattro and coupe choices) 911.I feel that this car is actually close to the air cooled 911s more so than the new water cooled Porsches.The TT makes u feel special each time you drive it.Just like the 911. No other car makes u feel so fantastic!!!!!!


Favorite Features

I love the short windows, where u peer out at the world,perfect lines both Interior and exterior,and High quality materials!!


Suggested Improvements

Better electrical suppliers to Audi!!!! (lots of gremlins)The car is great, and support is great from Audi of America. (dealership level needs a lot of improvment from follow up, customer care, and fault finding diagnostics ..are u listenting Audi USA??????

2001 Audi TT Coupe 180hp Fwd 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

It's a great car to drive, just make sure you don't bump any wheel stops in Mall parking lots. My little bump is going to cost $1,500 to fix. I had a Z3 and didn't have this problem.


Favorite Features

The whole car except the front nose.


Suggested Improvements

Make the nose of the car stronger so a 1 mph bump with a wheel stop doesn't cost $1,500.

2001 Audi TT Coupe 225hp Quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I was so excited when I bought my TT! Great looks, 225hp and all wheel drive what more could I ask for? How about a car that can run more than a few weeks without something going wrong with it. I have had nothing but problems with my TT!! Some of the problems include: chronic noise/rattles, front-end problems so severe that after four visits they finally replaced everything to remedy the original problem, anti- lock brake problems, turbo problems, oil leaks and even the CD changer broke. All of this and only 26000 miles. The best $40,000.00 I ever spent (sarcasm)I should have bought four Hyundai's! Don't make the same mistake I made....... avoid Audi!!


Favorite Features

Great appearance, all wheel drive and peppy!!


Suggested Improvements

Quality quality quality and reliabilty!!

2001 Audi TT Coupe 180hp Quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

The TT is not the most extreme performer in its class, but it does more things well at once than any competitor. It can keep up with 99% of sports cars on the tight twisties, but it is also a pleasure to drive for hundreds of miles and many hours on end. It is also the only car in its class that is likely to end up in an art museum for its design alone. Put this all together and no other car comes close.


Favorite Features

Handling!!

2001 Audi TT Coupe 180hp Quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I loved, absolutely loved my Audi TT. Great ride, handled beautifully, absolutely WONDERFUL performance with the 225 HP 1.8T - I never had a moment where I wished the car had MORE power. Grip was wonderful in the snow, the interior design was absolutely classic. However, I eventually had to sell it due to just too many recurring rattles that made it feel like you were driving a vehicle much cheaper than you were.


Favorite Features

The interior design is amazing, from the cupholders to the Playskool-like seat heater knobs to the golf ball shifter to the rotating trim rings around the heater vents.


Suggested Improvements

Please, Audi, take a TT out and LISTEN. You'll hear rattles from the radio door when it's up, the glove compartment door & the shelf under it, the light above the storage tray, the privacy shelf and most of all various creaks and pops from the plastic trim on the rear hatch.

Review

This car was and continues to be a real head turner. Extremely fun to drive. A very sure-footed ride that hugs the curves.


Favorite Features

Gorgeous exterior design. Surprisingly good head room.


Suggested Improvements

Would have preferred an automatic with tiptronic (which is now available). More interior convenience options like electronic seat adjustments with memory, heated seats, auto dimming rear view mirror.

2001 Audi TT Coupe 180hp Quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

The turbo and the quattro the key to the performance. It leaps between 2nd, 3rd and 4th. Cruises effortlessly at 90- 95 in 5th. And takes long mountain curves at 90+ like its nailed to the road. Was going to buy the classic silver, if I got it new, but then saw the new colors; this one is denim blue, or as I prefer VOODOO BLOO. Plan to rechip it to take HP from 225 to 265, add a diverter valve to get rid of turbo lag, and may redo the air intake and exhaust. Am actually trying to find a way to race this thing. Any ideas out there????


Favorite Features

Raw power, classic good looks, safe handling. FFUUUNNNNNNN! Took gas mileage from 12-16 to 26-30 range. Cheaper even if high test v regular.


Suggested Improvements

Worst cup holder in modern history, may as well be on the trunk lid. CD changer equally accessible. GPS system is incomprehensible, should be replaced by a Garmin StreetIII DLX, which I plan to buy. Current system is about as user friendly as a 1989 version of Unix.
