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.


Favorite Features

When it ran.. a fun to drive car.


Suggested Improvements

Get an extended warranty as you'll need it.

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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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.

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


Review

I purchased my TT on 06/03. A month later, I added a 6-CD changer for $350. It took over a month for the changer to arrive at the dealer, and it was incorrectly installed (lid kept popping). The tiptronic tranmission chip had to be replaced at about 10000 miles, the handle of the glove compartment broke when pulled with average strength, the battery died at 12000 miles and had to be replaced, an indicator cover (on the side front of the car) was loose and had to be replaced, the lamps on the trunk, etc...


Favorite Features

Exterior design, handling, interior design, materials used and craftmanship


Suggested Improvements

Cup holder needs to be repositioned, more horsepower for the price, standard V6 engine, standard 18" wheels, BETTER PARTS AVAILABILITY, longer warranty (only covers 4 yrs/50000 miles)

Review

The grocery getter has been retired! From a Volvo XC to an Audi TT, I'll never look back. My TT never sees the garage as I'm too busy enjoying the drives around the winding country and city roads of Northern California!


Favorite Features

The coccoon like envelopment of the interior. The sound of the engine when accelerating. The envious looks from other sports car drivers.


Suggested Improvements

The ability to change the dash light color from red.

Review

I love my TT. Plain and simple. I've ridden in and driven corvettes, porsches, bmw M3s M5s, lancer evo, wrk sti, etc. Mostly while shopping for my girl recently. None just felt as right as my TT. After each drive I hop back in the audi and suddenly I'm reminded of why I work 50 hours a week to drive this car. Oh and for the love of god please don't buy a roadster. Please.


Favorite Features

Xenon headlamps. Tiptronic trans. Coupe. Heated seats. Amazing styling. Bose sound 6-disc changer.


Suggested Improvements

Hmmm good question.... Can't come up with anything.
