2005 Audi TT Owner Comments

I have a 2005 Audi Tt quattro roadster, purchased new in 2005. Have had dashboard instrument cluster failure - twice - in 2 years! fuel gauge fluctuations, coolant sensor malfunction (had to replace coolant sensor to the tune of over $400! just two months ago), radio turns itself on after I've exited the vehicle, etc. First time instrument cluster replaced under warranty. Car now has 50,000 miles and out of warranty. Additionally, intermittent headlight failure. Idiot light comes on, left front headlight out. Turn off lights, 5 - 10 seconds, turn back on, everything is fine. This also happened about 2 years ago, but on the passenger side. Both times, shop replaced headlight. Now new wrinkle - when shifting gears (2nd, 3rd, 4th, and occasionally 5th) up, RPM's rev, engine revs and it seems to whir before catching gears. Only when shifting up, never down. What's up" is all this an inherent electrical issue"

The contact owns a 2005 Audi Tt. After starting the vehicle it would idle roughly. The vehicle was taken to a dealership and a technician stated that it was a common failure for her model type. She emailed the manufacturer but did not receive a response. The current mileage was approximately 23,000. The failure mileage was approximately 20,000.
