2004 Audi TT 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I must have just gotten the odd lemon based on the other reviews. After 75,000 miles in 3 years, I have spent over $10,000 in repairs and maintenance. This includes $5400 for a timing belt at just over 50,000 miles. The car is got a lot of pick up after the brief hesitation waiting for the turbo to kick in. It corners well and the stereo system is great, but that's about it. I have no desire to own another Audi. I have spent more repairs on this car than on my last 3 Toyotas combined and this car was far less reliable than my last two Volvos.
This is a good looking car.
IPod ready would be a nice feature. A better warranty. For the 40k price tag, the car maker should stand by it's product.
Your not alone my friend ----I've put over 10k in repairs into my TT ......from dealership blunders no less!! First the blades from the water pump disintegrated causing the engine to over heat, 5K to fix that little problem.....Oh and the fact that the Carlsbad, CA dealership told us that replacing the air-flow meter and sensor is what was needed at first.....about $1400.00. Then the instrument cluster.....now I have this very hard shift from 3 down to 2nd that scares the hell out of me.....but Im more afraid of the dealerships around me......ARGUHHHHHHHHH
