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


Review

Had it for 6 years and had nothing but problems- had to replace the battery 3 times. Had problems with both windows (replaced motors), Glove box broken (kept it shut not able to use $700 to replace) , had to replace the dashboard controls as the gas guage was giving false readings. Also, had to replace fron front rotors at 40K miles.Keyless entry had to be replaced as I think it ate up the battery.Replace various hoses etc at 60K miles.


Best Features

When it ran.. a fun to drive car.


Worst Features

Get an extended warranty as you'll need it.

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


Review

As an Audi Collector I believe this one will be an Audi Classic in due time. I've owned this one for 6 yrs and the only probs have been the electronics (windows, etc.). It is still as tight as the day bought and the 1.8 engine is a miniature work-horse. It's a solid machine that will be kept for ages.


Best Features

Design - In & Out.


Worst Features

Another gear

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


Review

I am 2 years into my used TT. It is picture perfect and fun to drive. 33 MPG on the HW 29 in town and I have a heavy foot. Best snow car I have ever owned (lived in CO for 29 years). Would get an extended protection plan as repairs are pricey. I love my car and always get asked about it.


Best Features

Exterior styling and handling.


Worst Features

Cup holders are horrible. But I guess in Germany people drive without coffee.

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


Review

Got it used and had it for a year. It turned out to be what it was advertised to be - fun and great to drive. Very good acceleration, handling, fantastic in the snow with snow tires.


Best Features

Handling, looks, sound system, acceleration (although there is a little turbo lag - you just need to know the right RPM).


Worst Features

Better tires (Pirellis are terribly noisy), electrical (problem with one of the windows - appears to be generic).

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


Review

Driving before the turbo kicks in is painful. The paint is EXTREMELY susceptible to scraches, dents, and road damage. The Tiptronic chip had to be replaced along with the battery at 8000 miles. The instrument cluster had a problem at 28000 miles. The glove compartment handle broke during normal operation at 5000 miles. It tookthe dealer two CD changers (CDC) and several complaints to get the CDC working right. The brakes would "scarily push back at your foot when depressed harshly"; the dealer never found anything wrong. Just like the exterior, all the nice brushed aluminum accents are extremely susceptible to damage/scratches.


Best Features

Design, color (Oceal Blue), interior design, features and comfort, instrument panel color (red), audio system, lumbar support of the seats, blue leather interior, exhaust note.


Worst Features

More power. Better trained/more efficient service. Improve reliability. Relocate the cup holders. The paint must be improved upon; itís ridiculous the damage it suffers from normal wear and tear and the deleterious effect of paint jobs on the overall look of the car.
