2001 GLX "Sport" limited edition bought
in 9/2002. In contrast to 90% of the
reviews here, I have never had anything
go wrong with this car. Not one
thing. Three years of perfect
servitude. My dealer could suck; I
wouldn't know. Beefed up the turbo
with a performance chip - this thing is
an Audi TT with more headroom (6'2")
but with a mushier suspension for those
hard turns. Bought this as a winter
car to complement my C5 Corvette, and
it's held its own. Checked out this
place to see whether to buy as it's
going off-lease- all these other
reviews made me think that I got lucky
(maybe that's the 'limited edition'
This car is a sports car - especially
with reprogramming. Outstanding car
from getting from point "A" (home) to
point "B" (work). Way too much power
to apply to the wheels. Don't ask me
my top speed in this outstanding car.
Monsoon stereo rocks. Leather bucket
seats rock. Me gusta.
Four-wheel drive as an Audi-esque
feature, please! Bought as winter car -
this light car stinks in heavy Chicago
snow. Cupholders are gawdawful. Did
anyone test them with real cups? Test-
drove automatic tranny - way too
wimpy. Gas mileage 21ish - I get 19 in
my 8-cylinder Vette.
