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


Review

This car is fun to drive with a "turbo" boost. It looks like a new one and drives like one also. New snow tires make this all wheel drive one that goes in the winter unlike some sports cars you need to park for 6 months. Total original miles is 23,400. Garage kept makes it a Beauty!


Best Features

The Ragtop and Turbo charged engine, along with many of the regular amenities that go along with all Audi vehicles, create a desire to own this sports car. It's Fun to drive especially in the summer. Low mileage makes this one of a kind. The silver color with the black top keeps makes heads turn.


Worst Features

If I keep this car, a set of summer tires will need to be purchased.

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


Review

This is a great car. My first convertible. The power roof is easy and quick, I can drop it down or put it up easily at a stop light. I have also had an issue with the squeak/clunky noise that a couple other reviewers noticed but it hasn't caused any major issues. I have had a couple expensive repairs with the water pump and oil gaskets and such. but it's been basically very reliable. and it's a beautiful car! My favorite is the baseball leather interior, makes the car stand out from all the other black leather-clad interiors of comparable cars.


Worst Features

stop the squeaky noise, supercharger instead of turbo to reduce the lag.

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


Review

Problems too numerous to list but Audi 1.8T motors have well known timing belt failure issues that cause major engine damage. Failure typically occurs well before 90,000 service interval. research A4 class action lawsuit. Expensive to buy, insure, maintain and, most of all, repair. Too many computer chips and sensors that fail regularly. I have been left stranded on the roadside twice in 6 months by serious mechanical failures that were expensive to repair. Don't buy one as a primary vehicle. Definitely don't buy one used. Better yet, don't buy one at all. I have owned mine for two years and it has had 5 or 6 significant repairs that required me to drive a loaner or rental car for a few days


Best Features

Stylish looks while stranded on side of road. Heated seats. Responsive handling. Bright, rugged hazard blinkers which is good because they will see a lot of use.

Review

I've loved this car since the day I bought it. Cruising through winding mountain roads with the top down can be a thrill or a pleasure depending on the weight of my foot. And to get great gas mileage (30 mpg) is the icing on the cake. Fun, fun, fun.


Best Features

exterior and interior style, quality of engineering and construction, ride, gas mileage

Review

I went from a 1992 BMW 318I convertable to the Audi TT. My wife and I were in the market for a sport convertable and we fell in love with the ride, performance and just plain fun of driving this car. The car has been very reliable and trouble free. I will definitely buy another one when it's time to replace this car.


Best Features

Convertible, stereo system and power.


Worst Features

Put the cup holders in a more convienent location.
