Warranty

Audi offers a four-year/50,000-mile limited warranty.

One thing the TT has going for it is a growing reputation for reliability. "Audi claims its resale values are now among the highest in the industry (higher even than Lexus) and that their warranty claims are down a shocking sixty-four percent in the last four model years," says Automobile Magazine.
