2001 Audi TT Coupe 4 cylinder from North America
Sleek with quaility issues
Engine coil recall--it was a big pain before the recall became official. They would only replace one coil at a time so you had to "wait" for the other coils to fail. Today they will replace them all.
Headlight malfunctioned (took 2 service visits to resolve.
Button popped off emergency brake and needed service visit to reattach.
Several electronic indicators had to be be repaired.
Window has occasionally refused to go up all the way. Seems to be self correcting after time passes.
Very enjoyable car to drive, but some really annoying defects. I had an Acura and didn't need to go in for a repair in 100,00 miles. With this car it seems every 1000 miles something breaks. Its all warranty, but I am worried about when the warranty expires...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I hope Audi is logging onto carsurvey.org and listening to the reviews of all these Audi's. Their vehicles look great (the TT is a good example) and they are comfortable and satisfying to drive. But there's no point producing a car (even in the luxury and prestige market) if it keeps breaking down and costs a fortune to repair. That's why most people in the know would rather buy a Lexus, BMW or Benz, even though the Audi's initially appear to be great value. Perhaps that's why Audi bought Lamborghini - they are too concerned with performance, when people really only want reliability.
