#39 of 145 everything is wrong with my TT
Apr 27, 2005 (8:51 pm)
ok, I've been reading the forums, and I'd like some thoughts on my problems:
2001 TT convertible, base ball inside, black outside... big engine, the whole bit.
The fuel guage has NEVER worked. If it wasn't for the digital count down, I wouldn't know when to put in gas...
51k miles: NEW engine. Now, I'm happy they gave me a new engine for $50, since it was under warranty, but they had the car for 4 months to do it... why in the heck would I need a new engine? Audi service says "we don't know".
56k miles: Blowing smoke and back fireing like crazy. Audi service says "can't find anything wrong".
57k miles: Oil light (looks like a genie lamp) comes on, flashes. Audi servce says "needs oil". Needs oil? How could a brand new engine need oil in 6k miles?
57.5k miles: Temp light on and blinking. Audi service says "bone dry. no coolent at all, no leaks , no cracks... no idea where the coolent went, but it's bone dry".
58k miles: Oil light flashing again. Audi service says "no oil" this time. Where's the oil? Audi says: "don't know. bone dry, just like the damned coolent. No leaks, no puddles under the car... just all the oil is missing".
First nice day in northing east, I put the top down, hit the button for my glass wind screen to come up, nothing happens. Audi service says "it's broke, needs a $1500 part, not covered under warranty". So, I bought a big time expensive option, and it's not covered when it brakes. I ask Audi, well, how did it break, it's been down all winter? Standard Audi answer "I don't know".
Don't even get me started about the tires...

so, last night I get home and reach over to open my glove box to get out my digital camera to take it in the house, and the entire lock assembly falls off in my hand!
Now I can't get my glove box open.
Marcib: to answer your question re; burning oil. I smell it and see it too. These cars suck.
#43 of 145 stalling

I HAVE AN 03 ROADSTER WITH THE 6SPD AUTO. UNDER CERTAIN CONDTIONS THE CAR HANGS UP. FOR EXAMPLE: WHEN PULING SLOWLY OUT OF A DRIVEWAY AND YOU NEED TO STEP DOWN ON IT TO GET INTO TRAFFIC. IT LITERALY FEELS LIKE IT HAS STALLED! IF I LET UP IT CATCHES MEANTIME YOU ARE SITTING IN FRONT OF ON COMING TRAFFIC. SOME FORUMS SUGEST THIS IS A MAF PROBLEM. BUT OF COURSE THE DEALER SAYS NOTHING SHOWS UP WHEN THEY READ THE CAR. ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS PROBLEM OR HAS SOLVED IT?

Hello, I'm thrilled to find this site. I would like to tell you all the history of my car (since so many are asking if others have had the same experiences) and ask about a new problem.
purchased new 2002 180 hp coupe June 02
first week fuel leaked out. In shop 20 some days replaced cracked fuel tank, and fuel lines
engine coils cracked first winter (before the coils were recalled so more time in shop)
electric problems began within first year. Hard to start, battery replaced twice. Service engine light came on and dealer just turned it off. Final electric repair was over a year ago (after a third letter to the manufacturer to repurchase my car) and it has been running since. I do not believe the instrument cluster was replaced in the last repair but I need to check my paperwork tonight since there is so much info in this forum about that. Currently it takes 3-4 times and a lot of revving to turn the car over when starting and the window movement is erratic. This AM I took it in to repair a tire and I'm told by my rear brakes are completely worn and would not pass inspection. I have less than 20,000 miles on the car and have never had problems with brakes (so I know it's not my driving habbits).
I've only seen one post about brakes from Aceduce57. Did your brakes wear down? What was the outcome? Anyone else out there with brakes that wore out fast? It's all so unbelievable for a car so pricey. But I think this forum has been extremely helpful and I'm going to persist in getting the car repurchased. What a painful procedure!
Thanks for any input, Debbie
