2001 Audi TT Quattro
Despite the fact that it is bankrupting me, I honestly love it more than any car I've ever owned
Timing belt slipped at 83,000 miles; engine destroyed according to dealer service department resulting in a $9,200 new engine repair bill.
Cracked brake fluid reservoir and cooling fan assembly relpaced at 83,000 miles.
Rear Brake light relay failed at 79,000 miles and was replaced.
Pollen filter, ball joints (?) headlight assembly on driver's side all replaced at 78,000 miles.
This car drives like a dream.
Smooth transmission changes.
Feels very stable in the corners.
Instrumentation looks great and is well placed.
The trunk has much greater capacity than you might expect.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

A new engine at 83,000 miles?! My Ford has 183,000 miles and is still going strong with the original motor... Just saying.

The timing belt slipped. It's not an engine failure. Its improper servicing. The timing belts on all 1.8T engines need to be changed every 50 000 km to avoid slipping and snapping.
