There is the regular warranty that comes with the 2002 TT and there's the extended warranty that one can buy. Will these cover the full cost of a T-belt failure? Or just cover the cost of the belt? BIG difference.
Extended warranties will depending on who is offering the coverage and the actual mileage compared with the manufacturer's suggested interval. Audi's certified "extended" warranty will cover everything, as I've been told. Read the fine print on other coverages.
As stated above:
Audi's certified "extended" warranty (CPO) will cover everything, as I've been told.
This did have the ending: "as I've been told". In reality, you really won't know until it breaks as to if they will actually cover it. And I wouldn't be surprised if you had conflicting answers from people who have had failures.
Personally, back when I was under CPO, I choose to change the belt rather then letting the dealer have that much of a say in my finances.
I read in the Boston Globe that there was a class action lawsuit against Audi for timing belt failure and that they will now cover it to 105,000 miles. When I called Audi they said only on the A4. Does anyone know details on this? I have a 01 TT with 59,000 and am being told to invest the money to have it done.
If you have any specific info on the class action share it with us. Many people have had timing belt failures on the TT with zero support from Audi. A phone number, a web site, anything would be helpful.
Timing belt on my 2000 TT broke on Wednesday - less than 80,000 miles on the car. On Friday, received letter from Audi of America with revised replacement instructions for timing belt at 105,000 miles. Obviously - there's a problem. Appreciate if you'd share info that you've received. Thanks.
