problem #2

Feb 152010

TT 4-cyl

  • 62,456 miles
Audi Tt, 2001, roadster. The glove box lock failed without reason. This failure does not allow the passenger side air bag to be disconnected for children as required by law. My car is not the only one with this defect. It is a design failure creating a safety hazard to small passengers. This failure is common to Audi Tt 2000 thru 2005. Needs to be corrected via a recall, an improved glove box lock system. Repairing with the same system only leads to recurrent failures.
