2002 Audi TT 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I bought my dream car used 2 years ago. Since then it has had one problem after another. The timing belt breaks prematurely with these cars and Audi USA knows this and does nothing about it. Instrument cluster fails, fuel cell broken 3x, automatic window motor goes out. If you get a flat tire you have to buy a whole set of new tires because they have to have the same tread wear as it is AWD. And even the most minor thing to fix is very expensive I had a blast driving it when it wasnt broken, but it seems to be breaking more and more and the car is only 6 yrs old. Don't buy this car no matter how "pretty" it is.
When the car actually worked, and wasnt in the shop, it was awesome to drive. Handling, speed, the turbo, all awesome.
Have someone redo the entire electrical system. Get a after market timing belt. And if you do buy this car, get an extended warranty because this car will break on you.
