Audi TT Roadster (2007–2015)

What's good

Audi TT 2008: 2nd highest first time MoT pass rate (89%) for models numbering more than 2000. Audi TT 2007: 4th highest first time MoT pass rate (88%) for models numbering more than 2000.

Very few reported problems over seven years.

What to watch out for

Strongly advise against optional 19-inch wheels as without 'magnetic' suspension they make the ride very stiff.

With DSGs and S-matics, protective software can delay the message from brake switch to ECU that brakes have been released, allowing car to enter a junction or roundabout on the fuel in the combustion chambers, then momentarily shut off mid-junction.

Be aware of the difficulty of matching Audi exclusive paint colours after an accident and also their effect on residuals.

£500 optional Nappa leather seats seem to suffer premature wear and sagging.

6-7-2013: Clutch life of a 270PS TTS can be as short as 20k miles.

19-11-2016: Report of dashboard ESP warning light coming on intermittently on an 18k mile 2008 Audi TT Mk II 3.2VR6 s-tronic roadster. Wheel realignment made no difference. Replacing ESP wheel sensor made no difference. Strange occasional 'bang' from under the car when brakes applied. Otherwise running fine. Eventually turned out to be a faulty brake pedal switch/sensor, cured by replacing the switch ast a cost of £20.
