Summary:

Super fun and very reliable!!!

Faults:

I had to replace the valve cover gasket 105,589 and the pads and rotors102,921. Other than that this car has been PERFECT I don't even see those things as problems with the car its just called MAINTENCE!!!

General Comments:

Great little car. Great MPG Avg 35!!! And it's an automatic ships firm and quick and is a blast to strap the surfboards to the roof and jet to the BEACH. These cars were made to goto the beach in. I would reccomend that you get the automatic it is easier to drive in town in and the wife doesn't get mad when you clunk the gears around.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

General Comments:

The TT feels like an extremely solid car. The DSG gearbox suits it very well and feels much more the upmarket GT than the 225s I have driven before. The extra torque of the 3.2 engine is always apparent and while performance can be seriously quick it is equally happy cruising.

No, it doesn't handle as well as a Boxster (or my Mk1 MR2) but grip is very high and it feels extremely safe. As a day in, day out, all year round performance car it does the job better than anything else I have looked at.

1 year and 20,000 miles further on: reliability has been 100 % but it has taken a while to get the most out of the car. The DSG box is great going up through the gears, but coming down it is sometimes more jerky than I expected. The engine has fully loosened up and provides all the performance I could ever need. Economy is good on the motorway - 30-32 mpg. First service cost £330 - a bit of a liberty for an oil change, although at 19000 mile intervals you can't really complain. It takes familiarisation to get used to how much grip there is - wet or dry. Ride is very firm, even on the motorway.

Still makes for a great GT car.
