AUDI TTS: The 2009 Audi TTS is the new top of the TT model line. Under its hood lies a 2.0-liter TFSI high-performance engine delivering a mighty 265 horsepower. This intense power propels the TTS Coupe to 62 miles per hour from standstill in just 5.2 seconds. Fuel economy is rated at 21 miles per gallon (city) and 29 mpg (highway). The Audi TTS is available as a two-plus-two-seater coupe and as a roadster. The 18-inch aluminum wheels are a highlight of the exterior design. Price starts at $45,500. (Source: Audi)

AUTO CARE: William asks: What causes tire rot? How often should tires be rotated? Answer: Tire dry rot is a breakdown in the rubber and additives that go into the tire. Heat and the sun’s rays also contribute to tire rot. A severely rotted tire is a safety hazard and should be replaced. Tire rotation time will vary by each individual application. A good step with new tires is to do the first rotation at 6,000 miles, then every 9,000 to 10,000 thereafter. (Source: Ask the Auto Doctor, Motor Matters)
