2006 Audi TT 225hp quattro 2dr Hatchback AWD (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
My 1989 Audi 100 Quattro served me well for 17 years, so when I finally decided to get a new car, Audi was the car to beat. I checked out the competition, but nothing came close. Although the TT is much different than a 4-door sedan, it still has the quality feel and classic style I loved in my old car. Soon after I purchased the vehicle, I set out on a 3-week, 3000-mi roadtrip to see if anything needed fine-tuning by the dealer. Everything worked and performed perfectly. Now the new car feels like a part of me when I drive, just like my old one did.
Better mileage than I expected... 32.5 on the open hwy. The Quattro AWD feature makes me feel in total control, even in a driving rainstorm. Clean industrial interior styling is appealing to me. Hatchback creates enough usable space to make this sportscar practical.
There is no elegant option to integrate iPod into sound system. Date/Clock is a pain to set... thankfully it only needs changing twice a year for Daylight Savings Time.
