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.

problem #1

Apr 202003

TT 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 23,400 miles
My 2001 Audi Tt roadsters airbag did not deploy during a direct frontal collision. The collision force was enough to shear the aluminum bumper reinforcement in the middle as well as wrap the radiator around the front of the engine. The vehicle is still in for repairs which now total over $13,000. In early 2003 I took my car to the dealer to investigate the airbag warning light. On the third (3rd) visit they replaced the airbag control module. I am concerned the airbag did not deploy because of a system failure?
