#2 of 34 Problems with my 2002 TT
Dec 26, 2002 (10:45 am)
I purchased an 180-hp TT earlier this year and in general I have been pretty happy with it. My three biggest problems with the car are:
- about 1 out of every 5 times the car door is closed, the window does not go back up all of the way.
- both of the sideview mirrors rattle like crazy
- the Bose Stereo upgrade sounds pathetic!
My Audi dealer claims that there is nothing wrong with my side view mirrors, even though everyone that rides in my car notices a problem.
Audi's service is another problem. I take my car to Jim Ellis Audi in Atlanta. For some reason it takes me 3-4 weeks to get an appointment to take my car in.

Is your TT a coupe or roadster? If it is a roadster, you might want to try pushing up on the handle that releases the top. It sometimes doesn't seat properly and this will prevent the window from going all the way up. If this problem persists, the dealer should adjust the top so that it aligns correctly with the headliner.
I had the same problem with my 01 Roadster. After several complaints, they finally realigned the top and I haven't had the problem in 6 months. Good luck.

I have similar problems. Have checked to see if your gas and trunk button are working along with the central locking button in the center console? Let me know. Steve

There is a simple fix to your automatic up-down window problem. I found this out when I had my instrument cluster replaced, and they forgot to re-program the windows. Just call your dealer's service department, and they will tell you the sequence of raising and lowering your window to reset the automatic up down feature. It worked for me.

Anyone know if there is a fuse or reply for the passenger window not to operate.

#9 of 34 TT 225 a real pain
Aug 15, 2005 (3:18 pm)
After carefully scrutinizing which would be the sportiest and unique car to buy for 25grand, I purchased a '02 225hp quattro TT coupe. The vehicle is Cert-pre-owned with a 3 year extended warranty (6 months still remain on the orig. fact warranty) I absolutely went crazy for the car's looks, performance, and quality of the materials and interior design. It is the coolest car I've ever owned. Shortly thereafter it became an incredible source of frustration for me. Before taking delivery of the car, I made sure Rusnak Audi of Pasadena, CA replaced the tires with name brand tires of the proper size. The tires were slightly too thin and too tall. The turn-signal and interior light switch were repaired as well. After driving the car for a couple days it felt totally unstable. Turns out, after 3 trips to the dealer that the rear suspension bushings had been working their way out of their housings causing extreme neg. camber at the rear. It was fixed under warranty after 4 days at the dealer with a terrible rental car. The windows started to get a mind of their own and would roll down 1 second after I hit the fancy "1-touch" up switch. The other window simply wouldn't roll all the way up. Until finally, it randomly decided to. The dealer couldn't duplicate the problem. The car, then began to overheat. Oh yeah, did I tell you that it only had 30,000 miles on it? Took it to the dealer again, got a PT cruiser rental car and they replaced the temp sensor and electric fan. They told me the windows were dirty from the smog in the air which caused their erratic behavior. I didn't accept this answer, but couldn't duplicate the problem in front of them. Two days later, the windows are still wacky and the temp guage started climbing again while gently driving in 68 degree weather. Lots of squeaks and rattles, there's a loose screw rolling around inside of the plastic E-brake housing. Both parking lamp bulbs have been replaced and one of the lamp sockets appearently melted. I swear the clutch is starting to feel like it takes up differently from time to time. I'm getting rid of it after 5 months. It still looks really cool and breaks my heart that the design is so appealing but I can't have that without the headaches of crazy problems. I'm getting a lexus IS300. It's really boring looking but has a reputation for reliability.

The windows in my TT roll down (by themselves) occasionally after the car is stopped and locked. It's maddening and my dealer says he has never heard of this happening. (Luckily I have witnesses!) I live in Palm Desert, I really think it has something to do with the extraordinary heat here.
