2001 Audi TT Convertible 225hp Quattro AWD 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Great car, however before buying make sure that the electronics for the odometer, fuel tank, speedometer have been replaced. Original uses an Italian chip that costs almost $1800 for a dealer replacement. Also, the glass wind screen on the convertible has a binding problem on the track that means the entire unit must be replaced at a cost of more than a thousand dollars! Oh yes, and if the glass is broken there is no replacement, you gotta buy the whole unit. Aside from the above, it is a great car, great performance, holds the road equally well in rain or snow due to the AWD. I would buy another one for sure. Get the 225hp, not the 180hp. The extra horses make a big difference.

2001 Audi TT Convertible 180hp Fwd 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Like other owners I have had some repairs but not as serious: lights and winshield wiper fluid reservoir. The major item was the instrument cluster which Audi finally settled the lawsuit. Upgraded shocks, exhaust and intake manifold make the car more fun to drive than ever.


Best Features

Its design and safety features plus the mileage/trip computer; great brakes.


Worst Features

Reliability, reliability.

Review

I love this car! It handles well, drives well, looks awesome, easy to use, plenty of space for big guys (im 6'3" 300lbs) I would absolutely recommend this car to anyone. The car isn't too bad on maintanance and up keep.


Best Features

Everything


Worst Features

Perhaps a turboed 6 cylinder or bigger 4, but not unhappy with what it's got.

2001 Audi TT Convertible 225hp Quattro AWD 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Fun to drive, handles nicely. But problems problem problems. Too cost conscious in engineering - will never buy Audi again. Stuff that should not happen at below 35,000 miles, and don't happen to my Benz with 120,000 miles! Too many problems to list - bearings, turbo, brake disks, joint boots, instrument panel, rain leaks frying electronics, O2 sensor, all at less than 35k miles! And I'm told by one of my mechanics it's one of the less troublesome recent Audis!


Best Features

Design and handling. 15 second convertible top.


Worst Features

Besides making it cute, make it last! Right now, at this price point, I feel like I have been ripped off in build quality!

2001 Audi TT Convertible 225hp Quattro AWD 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Purchased used just over 2 years ago, had 40K miles. I added 26K miles and only had a mass air flow sensor fail. This Quattro is great fun stock but if you have the money I highly recommend 18" rims with 235/40ZR 18 tires, cross drilled & vented rotors all around with ceramic brake pads. Also recommend perf chip and machined piston diverter valve. Now it's an absolute blast to drive. Even if you don't do any of the above invest in the diverter valve, the stock part is a poor design and inefficient causing turbo lag while shifting. And for heavens sake change the timimg belt every 60K miles and at the same time change over to a water pump w/metal impeller and v-belt tensioner w/metal roller.


Best Features

A gocart that doubles as a commuter car with great gas mileage unless I choose othewise. High tech inside and out, excellent fit and finish. Plenty of after market performance parts.


Worst Features

Fit at least one set of golf clubs in the trunk.
