Nov 02, 2002
Location:
Bethel, CT

my horn has failed once per year for the 6+ years i have owned it. audi (manufacturer) has replaced horn under warranty each time, and reimbursed me for the replacement one time (out of warranty). i just discovered that there was a recall for some vins for my car (1996 audi a4 quattro) for the exact problem i have been having. recall is 96v088000. but manufacturer claims that the recall doesn't cover my car. obviously is should, since i am suffering (have been suffering) from the exact same problem for 6 years. something needs to be done to expand this recall to cars through, at least, my vin, as the recall isn't wide enough. ts

i own a 1996 audi a4. the horn has intermittently worked since i've owned the vehicle - since 1999. i've tried on numerous occasions to have various dealers fix the problem since there is an outstanding recall notice for the horn assembly (campaign: 96v088000) but i'm now finally told that my vin does not fall into the appropriate range. however, the description of the 1996 audi a4 problem matches my problem exactly. i was told by a dealer years ago that to fix the problem, i would need to replace the leather steering wheel, which would cost approximately $1,000. my vin should be included in this recall notice. please advise. *jb
