Hi everyone, I’m looking at a 2012 TT 2.0 diesel quattro with quite low mileage and would be extremely grateful of anything I should be looking out for with this particular car regarding engine and mechanical issues. Is there anything I should worry about ie timing chain or any recalls or c known problems with the diesel version? Thanks in advance 🙏

.Hi, Welcome to the TTF.
My standard reply for would be MK2 owners
I can't help with a diesel but
Common Mk2 probs, saggy leather seats, noisy/failing window regulators, knocking steering racks, bonnet opening lever snaps & poor connections to rear lights, making them dim or loss of lights.

DSG, Get it nice & hot, check there is no delay on pulling away & no juddering when traveling very slowly, reversing up an incline or pulling into parking spot etc. Expensive to repair, but probably no more than a manuals clutch.

Check thoroughly for any damp as drains block easily & any damp can cause future electrical prob.
There are many common places where water can get in & leaking windscreen seals are being reported recently.
Check the MK2 KB for water leak info.
Recent reports of rear chassis/floor corrosion, saw one at MOT recently & it was quite bad, passed but needed attention.
