The redesigned TT greatly improves on the previous model. While still not as agile or sporty as the Mazda RX-8 or Porsche Boxster, it is enjoyable to drive. The TT displays responsive but not overtly sporty handling. The ride isn't as punishing as before. The coupe has two small rear seats while the convertible seats just two. Front-wheel-drive models come standard with the punchy 2.0-liter four-cylinder also used in the A3.

    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.

    THE ABRUPT SHIFT TO NEUTRAL COULD LEAD TO A CRASH WITHOUT WARNING.
    Summary:
    VOLKSWAGEN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2009 AND 2010 PASSENGER CARS MANUFACTURED BETWEEN SEPTEMBER 2008 AND AUGUST 2009.

IF THIS HAPPENS, THE SELECTOR LEVER POSITION INDICATOR WITHIN THE INSTRUMENT PANEL WILL FLASH. IN ADDITION, THE "DEPRESS BRAKE PEDAL" INDICATOR LIGHT WILL BE ILLUMINATED, ALERTING THE DRIVER TO APPLY THE BRAKES.
