Apart from the usual accident damage, and general neglect some
owners seem to display - one of the important issues are a
compete service history. The other is to ensure that ONLY the
correct specification of VW approved fully synthetic oil has been

Yeah, that's really the only way to tell. If there is a sticky residue
on the underside of the cap, or if the inside of the engine that you
can see looks 'gummy' (versus relatively clean) then 'run away'....
But I don't recall that the TT had this issue, it was primarily with
the longitudinal engine mountings like the A4 - the TT is transverse,

Ignore what Gerky Gatzoz has to say. He is a spammer that has haunted
this newsgroup for awhile. Ignore him.
I've been driving Audis for more than 20 years and everyone I have
owned has served me wonderfully. There are several TTs in the club I
belong to and all are happy with their cars.
Dealer told me slow months were July and Aug.
Also worth a thought on your timing within the month you buy - i.e. has the
sales exec hit his required target?

Actually my '03 has given me a few minor problems:
2) Ignition coils. Apparently there was no recall like on A4s and GTI/Jettas
of similar years. Luckily it was still under warranty.
4) A recent problem was that my car would just die while on the freeway (at
80mph) and while braking. All the gauges would just quickly drop to zero,
all lights would shut off, etc. Just as quickly the engine would start up
and continue like nothing happened. It happened a few times over about a 2
week period. No fault codes appeared.
5) Did I mention rattles?
I guess 4 isn't really minor, but it stopped happening.
