2001 Audi TT 225hp Quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I've owned this TT since February of 2002, and I would estimate that I've already had to take it into the dealer to be repaired at least 30 times - and this is not an exaggeration. It's a fun car with good styling but if I had to do it all over again, I'd buy a different car. Inflated european repair costs aside, it's a royal pain to have to bring this car to the dealership over & over again. There weren't many comparable options when I bought my TT...but now that there are, I'm planning to sell mine and buy a japanese sports car instead so that I can spend more time driving it and less time leaving it at a repair shop.
Great styling, good handling, VERY comfortable seats, good-sounding Bose audio system.
Buy a different car. This car badly needs reliability. Because Audi was trying to be so artistic with this car, it's also a pain to do even the smallest thing, such as putting on the spare tire.
