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


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.
