I have noticed a trend that people are selling their Audi TT mostly under or around 100000 miles. Is there a specific reason anybody know, why is this a trend that after certain miles, is it that the driver gets bored??? or some mechanical issue starts coming up? Please advise anyone....

At 100K you generally have fairly major services due. Also at that mileage there will be front end parts needing to be replaced. Ball joints, tie rods, bushings, etc. Call the Audi dealer to find out what maintenance is needed at 100k and pay an amount for the car knowing these services are not cheap. Timing belt, oil leaks, etc. Audi's are relatively expensive to repair and going over the 100k mark you will have some repairs.

It's not just Audi TT's it's most other vehicles. The 100K mile myth that today's vehicle are worthless and replace them still runs rampant. But today's cars last much longer, but like the guys above posted , it takes some money to replace parts to keep it going and owners don;t want to be bothered with repair work or reliabilty. You can get into a nice car nowadays new vs used if you don't mind taking care of it. Try to find one with the timing belt replaced and other items so you won;t have to worry about it.

"Try to find one with the timing belt replaced and other items so you won;t have to worry about it" or find out how much it is going to cost and lower your counter offer to cover it.
