    Common problems with the TT?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    My brother is looking into getting a TT, and I'm trying to do some research for him.

    What are the differences in the different years? Is one year particularly bad/problematic? Does some major problem get fixed by a certain year?

    What are the common problems? From what I gather, 1) timing belt at 80K (or 60 to be sure); 2) control arms; 3) MAFs.

    Anything else? Any recalls?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Well, you have the timing belt in the earlier TT's, the black top coolant temp sensor, diverter valve and that's about all I know...

    My parents... totally stock and well cared for TT... has had just a few things actually go wrong but they are mostly wear and tear items.

    MAF failed at around 50K
    N75 failed at around 52K

    On my car... a bit modded and abused... I've broken some stuff a few times. Here are the things unrelated to the mods.

    Turn signal flasher switch... on lucky #3
    Door lock module just kinda died

    Other than that, its been a great car. I don't want to knock it for anything that breaks as a result of mods or actions taken to "test" the afore mentioned mods.

    There was a recall on early TTs that included new suspension and installation of esp and the rear spoiler.

    There was a recall on coilpacks due to a very high failure rate.

    There are also some service bulletins out on things like the radio, coolant temp sensor, MAF, Throttle body, etc.... nothing crazy though.

    I have intermittent brake ABS warning light coming on (ABS controller going out) and at 49K rebuilt front suspension with new ball joints,CV joint,tie rods,etc.,,,,,,,nothing that doesn't brake on VW's as well.The TT is a SOLID car,much better build quality than VW models for sure.I LOVE MY TT!!!! I will keep it for atleast 10-15 years.I have a 400hp Corrado16Vturbo,and have owned that for 13 years! The only car that came close/excelled to a Corrado is the TT!! I love my 2 door coupes.

    TTs and Corrados are both cars that their owners fall in love with.

    They'll get my TT when the pry my cold dead arse out of the seat.

    Is that so you can find your car in the Walmart parking lot?
