2002 Audi TT Convertible 180hp Fwd 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Fun to drive, love the 180 for around town drives because of the early & flat torque curve. It's as quick as the 225 for normal use for this reason (full torque @ 1950 rpm) & this is the last year for the true manual shift- which is a preferred feature for us- wanting a true old school style sports car. Burns Premium only. The trunk is roomy, AC is great. Had some minor issues- dip stick crumbled, cheap cd storage latch broke twice. We plan to keep this baby many years & are aware of timing belt issues that bear watching. It's a great sports car in the old tradition, but without the leaks & rattles of the old Brits.


Favorite Features

Great engine torque that comes on strong at just 2k,water & air tight for a rag top, last yr. for the true stick shift, EZ top up & down, roomy trunk, superb handling. Poor man's Porsche.


Suggested Improvements

Notorious timing best failures destroy engines- watch out for that monster issue. Premium fuel is expensive.

2002 Audi TT Convertible 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I purchased this car on 12/16/2009. In February 2010 I had to replace the front brakes for $600, timing belt and water pump for $1,000. Now in March, The temp gauge sensor is not working ($115), fuel gauge sensor is not working ($650), the center display on dash is starting to go out ($1,800), throw out bearing is starting to go out ($2,000), brake lights keep getting stuck on, and last but not least it eats oil.


Favorite Features

Quick, sporty, and I love the drop top.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the issues with the gauge cluster and move the cup holders.

2002 Audi TT Convertible 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This is not the first sports car that I have owned but, it could be the best. The turbo charged 4 cylinder is a great engine and really pushes the car around. The convertible adds that extra touch that makes the car a real pleasure to drive. I love the handling of the car through the turns of a winding road.


Favorite Features

The convertible top is the best. Just a switch to push and it drops in seconds. The interior is just comfortable enough without over doing it. I'm 6foot 3inches tall and I fit into the car without a problem. Once in the car there is more than enough room available to me.


Suggested Improvements

None so far.

2002 Audi TT Convertible 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Purchased used in Jan 07 in NY (I live FL), certified and only 19800 miles on car. No problems at all, runs great and I replaced the ugly rims with something that finishes the car much better than stock wheels. Averaged 28 miles to the gallon on trip back from NY... this car will be a classic one day.


Favorite Features

Everything.


Suggested Improvements

Power driver seat.
