#15 of 44 03' 225HP 6 speed problem
Dec 12, 2006 (5:29 pm)
My tranny problems happened in 4th gear. I had to shift or do a 3rd > 5th upshift. When you have a 4 cylinder turbo motor, it could be kind of a drag missing that 4th gear.
I brought it in for service and Audi gave me a cheapo A4 to tool around in. I waited for the parts to come from Germany for almost a week.
Cost to me - 0 dollars.
However! It was a leased car and I made my last payment in March. I just leased a 2006 Metallic Silver BMW Z4 3.0si.
No turbo lag
No tranny problems
No latch to pull down to close the ragtop
6 speed shifts like a hot knife in butter
255HP is really fast
The car sounds like a F1 race car!
No baseball interior
I'm really happy with my Z4
No TT for 2006?!
#16 of 44 audi tt 2002 transmission problems
Mar 15, 2007 (5:13 pm)
Have owned the TT for 3 years with flawless performance. A month ago I had an incident in which, after downshifting from 5th, the car would not go into gear -- any gear. After coasting to roadside, turned off engine & called roadside assistance. Few minutes later restarted; gears were fine and went on my way. Exact same thing happend 2 weeks ago. Happend again last week, only this time could not engage any gears except after stopping, killing engine and restarting -- then only could use first and 2nd. TT in shop for a week now; they claim nothing wrong although tow truck driver AND service guy could not get out of first when car picked up. Am fearful of being on interstate and getting run over by tractor trailer as I attempt to force car into gear...suggestions????

Do you own or lease? Especially if you own, keep the service records.
You may want to get the car checked by another Audi dealer.
#18 of 44 2001 TT 5 Speed 180hp Transmission Grinding

On my third trip to the dealer 30K, 50K and 58K for the same problem. Tranny grinds when shifting from 2nd to 3rd while rpm's are between 3000~4000. Only occurs after car has been driven for 30~45 minutes on streets or freeway. Does any know why? The dealer now says it's me.

Are you guys STILL on this TT tranny gig? Guys, I am so glad that I didn't buy the TT after the lease was completed.
I drove my 2006 BMW Z4 si 3.0, 6 speed silver bullet to Tampa Florida and back. This car held up really nicely! To date, I've spent 0.0 dollars on repairs.
This car has NEVER seen the BMW shop except to change the oil and NY inspection.
The new TT? It looks like a frog next to the Z4 AND they raised the price.

Well... this is the Audi TT Transmission topic, so...
On the other hand, this isn't the Z4 topic, which may be why you're not getting any responses. You might get a better reception here:

I have the same problem with my Audi 2002 TT. Did you figure out a way to fix this? I really do not want to replace the clutch and then have the same problem.
Many thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.

I have an 03 TT with 57000 miles. Everything was fine, it ran great, pulled into my garage, turned it off, the next time I got in. . .no 1st or 2nd gear. Unbelievable, the mechanic says it needs a new transmission? Is there anyone out there that knows of an out of work Audi mechanic (in the Dallas area) that needs a little extra money?
