2000 brought the debut of the TT, Audi's striking sports coupe. Unlike many sports cars, the TT has a small rear seat. Initially, it came only with front-wheel drive; the Quattro all-wheel-drive option is now available, and a convertible model that comes with a 225-hp engine. A gutsy 1.8-liter turbocharged Four producing 180 hp connects to a five-speed manual transmission.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
