2003 Audi TT 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Got it used and had it for a year. It turned out to be what it was advertised to be - fun and great to drive. Very good acceleration, handling, fantastic in the snow with snow tires.


Best Features

Handling, looks, sound system, acceleration (although there is a little turbo lag - you just need to know the right RPM).


Worst Features

Better tires (Pirellis are terribly noisy), electrical (problem with one of the windows - appears to be generic).

2003 Audi TT 180hp Fwd 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Driving before the turbo kicks in is painful. The paint is EXTREMELY susceptible to scraches, dents, and road damage. The Tiptronic chip had to be replaced along with the battery at 8000 miles. The instrument cluster had a problem at 28000 miles. The glove compartment handle broke during normal operation at 5000 miles. It tookthe dealer two CD changers (CDC) and several complaints to get the CDC working right. The brakes would "scarily push back at your foot when depressed harshly"; the dealer never found anything wrong. Just like the exterior, all the nice brushed aluminum accents are extremely susceptible to damage/scratches.


Best Features

Design, color (Oceal Blue), interior design, features and comfort, instrument panel color (red), audio system, lumbar support of the seats, blue leather interior, exhaust note.


Worst Features

More power. Better trained/more efficient service. Improve reliability. Relocate the cup holders. The paint must be improved upon; it’s ridiculous the damage it suffers from normal wear and tear and the deleterious effect of paint jobs on the overall look of the car.

2003 Audi TT 180hp Fwd 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Car has ben in shop 3 times since purchase for minor maintenance. More of a nuisance than anything else.


Best Features

Fun to drive, power top and glass rear windowe is a great plus, and comfortable to boot! Car is super sturdy compared to other rattle traps owned before. Plenty of power for a grocery getter from the 180 HP 4 cylinder.


Worst Features

Reliability factor needs to be considered.

2003 Audi TT 225hp quattro AWD 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Have the TT for over three years. Love the way it rides. Fun, handles great, though alittle heavy. Inside a little claustrophobic with many blind spots. Most disappointing is reliability. The car has 6400 miles. So far the electrical system, air cond. system, dash cluster fuel gauge, glove box have been repaired. Need I say more? Would think twice about the 2003 TT.


Best Features

Fun to drive, handles great, Quattro


Worst Features

Better visibility, short throw shifter, much better reliability

2003 Audi TT 180hp Fwd 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I purchased a certified, brilliant red roadster 180 FWD automatic just for fun. What a great little vehicle. Love to cruise around as I don't see many other TT's in South Dakota ! People ask about it all the time ... red color really helps.


Best Features

Exterior looks/appearence, ride, most features


Worst Features

cupholder re-positioning, change red instrument lighting panel color, 'maybe' different tires.
