........... 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.

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.

Nov 14, 2008 (11:53 am)
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?

Today, my 2001 Audi TT Quatro would not shift into 1st or 2nd gear. I was able to get reverse and back into a safe plane since I was near home.
So the deal, they will save me $4000 by not putting a new transmission in. The rebuilt transmission and a new clutch (expected at 80,000 miles) will cost $5660. My 80,000 mile service last year cost $2200. I can no longer afford this fun car and will sell it before the next shoe falls. Should have done sooner when warrantee ended.

having the exact same problem with our TT. Has the rebuilt transmission worked? Was that the problem? They have told me that they need to take it out to determine what is wrong, there is a chance that it is something that might be fixed without putting in a new transmission.
