The Parkers Used Car Verdict

You really can’t go wrong with an Audi TT Mk2. It’s refined, lovely to look at, great fun to drive and beautifully screwed together. Moreover, it’s a huge improvement over the original TT in virtually every respect and there’s little in the way of mechanical issues to worry prospective buyers. Obviously, the safest buys will be the cars with an accompanying service history either from Audi itself or a known independent Audi specialist.

If you don’t do a high mileage, the lusty V6 will be tempting, otherwise the 2.0 TFSI will more than suffice. The noise of the five-cylinder RS engine is lovely, but the car has a slightly nose-heavy feel and there’s a price to pay at the pumps. The turbodiesel also has plenty going for it, especially for buyers using it as a daily driver. While the manual transmissions are bulletproof, we would still opt for the excellent DSG, as long as no obvious issues were revealed on a test-drive.

The only real TT negative is ride quality. Arguably, it’s not the most comfortable car in its class, although the more run-of-the-mill models will offer a less choppy ride than the lower-sprung sporty models with bigger-diameter wheels.
