Wow...truley an impressive car! World-class styling (inside and out), great performance, a real head turner! I use this car for my every day vehicle and loathe the days when I can't drive it! It's a shame that I'll be getting rid of it soon, as I am unable to afford the monthly (sometimes bi-monthly) maintenance on it. Relatively simple repairs to unnecessary luxury features (i.e., headlight washers) should not cost $500!! I have only had repair work on these little nuisances...never anything major. The Certified Pre-Owned "warranty" offered by Audi is a load of garbage. The TT really is an awesome (initially affordable) toy to have...as long as you have deep pockets for repair!
Cockpit design and insturmentation layout; performance and handling; still a "rare" car so it gets people's attention; above average fuel economy; spacious cargo area for a sport coupe.
The 1.8L, 180hp turbo feels a bit weak when accelerating from a stop. Could also use a 6th gear. Back "seat" should just be called a "storage bench". Less paneling under the hood for easier "do it yourself" maintenance.
Driver seat is comfortable, interior circle theme is interesting and catches everyone's eye. This car has a reputation for being fast and upscale. Despite a 4 cylinder, this car quickly accelerates, the AWD feature must give it an extra jump. Smooth ride at high speeds. AWD does indeed help in the snow. The rumbling sound gives it a race car feel. Small enough to fit in the tiniest of parking spaces. Leather is first rate. BOSE sound system is awsome. Large trunk when seats are folded down. Red interior lights are cool. Downsides: 0 legroom in back, this car is made for 2 and a couple of dogs. Expensive oil changes.
Unique body style (round nose), red lights inside, round themed interior, leather is soft, BOSE.
Could use more leg room in the back. Center console plastic sliding mechanism is cheaply made.
