Build Date: September 1998 to December 1999

Defect: The TT proves to have a relatively narrow handling limit zone if extreme manoeuvres are undertaken at high speed which could lead, in the worst case, to a precise steering response to retain directional control. Instability and loss of directional control could occur. These characteristics have led to some customers objecting to the cars road behaviour. In an attempt to improve customer satisfaction, the cars physical reactions are to be modified so the vehicles behaviour becomes more predictable at the handling limits.
Action: Likely to be affected vehicles will be recalled for modifications to the suspension settings and the addition of a rear spoiler.
Launch Date: 17 April 2000
