Audi’s TT, named for the British Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) Motorcycle Race, has been one of the most distinct representations of the two-door sports car ever since its unveiling as a concept car at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1995. The Second Generation Audi TT, introduced in 2006 and produced until 2014, marked a significant evolution of the iconic sports car. With its striking design, the 2nd-gen TT retained the original's distinctive profile while adopting a more aggressive and modern look. Problems do arise from time to time, so below is a list of a few common complaints shared among TT owners.
Haldex All-Wheel Drive: The Haldex all-wheel-drive system used in some TT models could experience issues with the rear differential or Haldex pump. Regular maintenance and fluid changes by an experienced Audi repair technician are important for keeping this system in good working order.
Convertible Top Mechanism: Owners of the TT Roadster reported occasional problems with the convertible top mechanism, such as issues with the roof not fully opening or closing.
Hesitant Cold Start: Some Audi TT owners have reported issues with their cars not starting up as quickly as they should. A coughing or sputtering noise precedes the engine engaging which could be a sign of bigger engine trouble and should be investigated by a professional Audi repair shop.
Window Regulator Problems: Audi TT owners have experienced issues with faulty window regulators. At times they have experienced a slowness in the operation of the window regulator and at other times the window will not completely roll up or down but gets stuck halfway. This can certainly be vexing.
If you are experiencing any one of the problems outlined above, never fear. Simply schedule and appointment with an independent VW repair garage and have this issue fixed.
