2000 Audi TT Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Audi’s sports car debuted in the spring of 1999 as a front-drive, four-seat coupe. In the spring of 2001, a two-seat roadster, a more potent engine and all-wheel drive join the coupe. Audi is the luxury division of Volkswagen, and the TT is based on the design used for the New Beetle, Jetta, Golf and the Audi A4, though it sports unique rounded styling.

Most Audi dealers have waiting lists for the TT, especially the new roadster and all-wheel-drive versions, which are 2001 models.

Exterior
The attention-grabbing round shape of the TT carries the basic styling themes of Audi’s sedans to an extreme, with the only straight lines found along the sides between the front and rear wheels.

A manual soft-top that stows behind the seats and has a glass rear window with defogger is standard on the roadster, and a power top is optional on the front-drive version. A power glass windbreak shaped like the roll bars behind the seats raises when the top is down to reduce turbulence in the interior.

Interior
Substantial body English is required to negotiate the sloping roof pillars of the coupe and drop into the low-mounted seats. The rear seat is a token gesture — not a serious attempt to accommodate passengers — and the interior has a cramped, claustrophobic feel.

The dashboard is dominated by circular shapes and is a blend of contemporary and art-deco design elements. Leather upholstery is standard on all models. Optional on the roadster is red amber leather upholstery with un...

Interior
Substantial body English is required to negotiate the sloping roof pillars of the coupe and drop into the low-mounted seats. The rear seat is a token gesture — not a serious attempt to accommodate passengers — and the interior has a cramped, claustrophobic feel.

The dashboard is dominated by circular shapes and is a blend of contemporary and art-deco design elements. Leather upholstery is standard on all models. Optional on the roadster is red amber leather upholstery with unusual “baseball glove” stitching along the seams.

Under the Hood
The front-drive roadster and the coupe come with a standard 180-horsepower 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which also is used in the Audi A4 and several VW models. A fortified version of that engine that belts out 225 hp is standard on roadsters with Quattro all-wheel drive and is optional on the Quattro coupe.

With either engine, you have to shift for yourself in the TT. The 180-hp engine comes with a five-speed manual, while the 225 hp engine teams with a six-speed manual. An automatic transmission will not be available until 2001 or 2002. Audi recalled all TTs in late 1999 following complaints in Germany of high-speed instability, and the company installed anti-roll bars and a rear spoiler.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
