2003 Audi TT Convertible 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Purchased as 2nd owner from dealer. 35K on the clock in 7 years. Since it is almost new, I expect NO problems and haven't been disappointed [yet]. Powerful, fun to drive, great handling, eye-catching and real economy - 30 mpg, suburb stereo. This car has all the bells and whistles I'll ever need. Plan on keeping this car a long time only driven in summers. Will do maintenance as recommended by factory - my best attempt at forestalling potential problems.


Favorite Features

Size, style, performance, economy and high "fun quotient".


Suggested Improvements

Install armrest instead of cup holders and provide electrochromatic rear view mirror.

2003 Audi TT Convertible 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Purchased a one-owner roadster in almost showroom condition and I'm sure NOT sorry about that move [further down the road, I may change my mind]. Plan on continuing with the factory maintenance schedule to prevent any problems. This car is very fun to drive and very temping to get into the turbo boost - gotta be careful because it is easy to speed before you know it. Has all the creature comforts my Sebring convertible lacked. Feels very solid, tight and a high level of build quality is evident.


Favorite Features

Engine and 6 speed combo. Concert hall stereo system with 6 disc changer. Looks great and gets a lot of looks too. Don't see many of these on the road.


Suggested Improvements

Too soon to suggest anything at this point.

2003 Audi TT Convertible 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Although the first few months of ownership were filled with computer related and dealer repair problems (almost 1 month to get is all working). It is tough to find a replacement vehicle, at this price, that offers the style and design features of the TT Roadster. The Baseball Optic leather seats with dark blue and blue canvas roof and brushed metal hardware are striking and hold up to wear well. They speak to the high standards of Audi's designers and engineers. The power train and exhaust have been reliable. There is more than enough hp/torque for an everyday vehicle and the all-wheel drive has served when needed. "Keyless" entry occasionally needs reprogramming it eats batteries.


Favorite Features

The manual 6 transmission, steering and breaking systems give the driver great control. The motorized convertible roof and motorized rear windscreen are well designed. Fuel consumption was an average of 27.5 mpg after 5 years 10 months of use. Interior fit and finish is outstanding.


Suggested Improvements

Better suspension, beefier roll bars and better quality struts!! Computer operated electric window needs to be a bit more reliable. The window, after its entry position, fails to return to closed position and "one-press" to open sometimes stops in mid-position.

2003 Audi TT Convertible 180hp Fwd 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I bought mine used with 63xxx and in impeccable shape. With or without the top down, you get noticed in this car, a lot. The car handles extremely well, especially at higher speeds. The engine purrs, but does not have a strong kick at the starting gate. The ride is harsh and noisy. Lots of metal rattles underneath and in the rear, none of which the dealer can figure out! Heating/cooling and stereo are outstanding. Bottom line: the good far outweighs the negative.


Favorite Features

Interior and exterior design. Road hugging handling. Bose sound system. Heating/AC and defrost


Suggested Improvements

Change cupholder position, improve seat adjustments, automatic boot for convertible

Review

Car has ben in shop 3 times since purchase for minor maintenance. More of a nuisance than anything else.


Favorite Features

Fun to drive, power top and glass rear windowe is a great plus, and comfortable to boot! Car is super sturdy compared to other rattle traps owned before. Plenty of power for a grocery getter from the 180 HP 4 cylinder.


Suggested Improvements

Reliability factor needs to be considered.
