2002 Audi TT 180hp Fwd 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Fun to drive, love the 180 for around town drives because of the early & flat torque curve. It's as quick as the 225 for normal use for this reason (full torque @ 1950 rpm) & this is the last year for the true manual shift- which is a preferred feature for us- wanting a true old school style sports car. Burns Premium only. The trunk is roomy, AC is great. Had some minor issues- dip stick crumbled, cheap cd storage latch broke twice. We plan to keep this baby many years & are aware of timing belt issues that bear watching. It's a great sports car in the old tradition, but without the leaks & rattles of the old Brits.

Best Features

Great engine torque that comes on strong at just 2k,water & air tight for a rag top, last yr. for the true stick shift, EZ top up & down, roomy trunk, superb handling. Poor man's Porsche.

Worst Features

Notorious timing best failures destroy engines- watch out for that monster issue. Premium fuel is expensive.
