About Audi TT Quattro
As a model in the Audi TT lineup, Audi TT Quattro has been built by the German automobile manufacturer Audi AG, part of the Volkswagen Group since 2000 as a sport compact vehicle. Originally introduced as Audi's smallest two-door car, TT Quattro is a very sporty vehicle second only to the flagship Audi R8 sport coupe. Competing against the BMW M240, Chevrolet Corvette, and Porsche 718 Boxster, TT Quattro also does well in motorsport. Now, TT Quattro is in its third generation.
The second-generation Audi TT Quattro was produced between April 2006 and March 2014 based on the Volkswagen Group A5 (PQ35) as a four-wheel drive model. It was offered in two body styles, 2-door coupe and 2-door roadster and came in 2.0 TFSI Quattro and 2.0 TDI Quattro. During this generation, Audi TT Quattro was powered by 2.0 L I4 rated at 168-268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque and 3.2 L V6 producing 247 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque and engines sent power through 6-speed manual and 6-speed S tronic automatic transmissions to four wheels. Current TT Quattro was introduced at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show for the 2015 model year. Using the new Volkswagen Group MQB platform, TT Quattro now gets power from 2.0 L TFSI rated at 230 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque and 2.0 L TDI producing 184 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque and power is sent through 6-speed manual or 6-speed S tronic automatic transmission to four wheels.
Audi TT Quattro Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
Enjoying the well-functioning and famous Audi Quattro system, Audi TT Quattro is definitely better than the perfect Audi TT. But just as Audi TT, TT Quattro has also some similar issues after its mileage reaches a certain number:
First, Audi TT Quattro suffers from engine failure and cooling system failure and the latter only deteriorates the former. Many TT Quattro drivers may realize the seriousness of engine failure, but they ignore the cooling system failure though the coolant is leaking and the engine keeps overheating or stays at a high operation temperature. Next, the engine will experience roughly running, misfiring, stalling and even hard starting and inability to start. Gradually, you will notice the vehicle losing power while acceleration and consuming excessive oil; and both Check Engine Light and Low Coolant Light come on. If you could inspect the TT Quattro spark plug, oil filter, air filter, engine control module, intake manifold, water pump, coolant reservoir, fuel pump and valve cover gasket in time when seeing leaking coolant and hearing strange noises from the engine, all will be saved.
Second, for Audi TT Quattro drivers, suspension failure is another tricky problem to deal with. The difficulty lies on most TT Quattro drivers have not enough knowledge about working principle of automobiles, therefore, they have no ability to diagnose and even solve it in time to prevent the worse situation. To help more owners without automobile knowledge background, these typical symptoms of suspension failure could be helpful. If there are clunking or grinding noises from underneath the vehicle; if you feel intense car vibration, find uneven and excessive tire wear and the vehicle tends to tilt to one side; next, you will find yourself difficult in handling the vehicle due to unintentional steering and loose steering wheel. And all these symptoms could be solved by replacing the TT Quattro shock absorber, wheel bearing, sway bar bushing, control arm bushing, coil springs, and coil spring insulator in the suspension system.
A perfect ride on your Audi TT Quattro needs to rely on the proper play of every auto part on it. But some parts on it are bound to be vulnerable and could not last as long as the vehicle could due to fragile materials and harsh working conditions. And that is why you should put the TT Quattro seat belt, windshield wiper, wiper blade, fog light, headlight, antenna and cabin air filter on your routine maintenance list.
