2000-2006 Audi TT Reliability - Consumer Guide Automotive

2000-2006 Audi TT Reliability - Consumer Guide Automotive: "Trouble Spots
Consumer Guide's® Auto Editors have scoured repair bulletins and questioned mechanics to search for commonly occurring problems for a particular vehicle. In some cases we also give possible manufacturer-suggested solutions. In many instances these trouble spots are Technical Service Bulletins posted by the manufacturer, however, we have our own expert looking at additional vehicle problems.
Audio system: If the CD player and rear defogger are operated at the same time, a whining noise may come from the audio speakers. This requires a filter on the wiring harness. (2000)
Coolant leak: Coolant leaks from the thermostat housing on the VR6 engine due to bad O-ring or cracked housing. (2002-06)
Engine noise: Engine may groan or howl due to a problem with the charge pressure valve for the turbo system. A revised valve is available. (2000)
Paint/body: Hoists or floor jacks may damage early production models' sill panels. Later models are built with hoist lift pads that can be retrofitted. (2000)
Rough idle: Dirty throttle body bore and throttle control module commonly cause rough or low idle. (2000-01)
Rough idle: Backfires dislodge the idle control damper from the rear of the engine causing rough, or no idle due to faulty plugs or wires on vehicles equipped with the VR6 engine. (1992-04)
Suspension problems: To improve handling and reduce the risk of vehicle skid, front stabilizers (FWD) or front and rear stabilizers (Quattro) are being replaced. (2000)"

No comments:

'Vorsprung Dirch Technik' [ Advantage Through Technology" - Audi's German Tagline. Audi will import 5000 roadsters into North America for an on-sale date of April 2000. Half of these will be equipped as Quattros, and only 1250 are expected to be the 225-horsepower version. So what the heck does TT stand for anyway? That would be "Tourist Trophy" as in Great Britain's historic racing series of the Isle of Man. TT Now Stands for Terrifically Topless.
