there were no crashes and no injuries related to this incident. i purchased a 1996 audi a4 quattro, vin [xxx], used on february 7, 2004. on the incident date the ingition switch failed causing damage to the starter motor. the vehicle was taken to our service dealer, midwestern auto group, dublin, ohio where the problem was diagnosed as a failure of the ingition switch housing. this is the exact same failure that initiated a recall campaign, nhtsa campaign id# 00v317000 (audi campaign code le). the dealer researched the audi database and discovered that the recall campaign was completed on this vehicle in 2001. subsequently, the audi manufacturers representative, to the displeasure of the dealer, has denied any claim on this incident pertaining to the recall. the representative stated that it is audi's policy that once a recall has been completed on a vehicle, it will not honor any further claims even if the problem is exactly the same. a call to the audi consumer advocate department confirmed this policy, incident # [xxx]. two issues surface because of this incident. the first issue is the adequacy of the solution to the initial recall. the second issue is audi's response and policy concerning identical failures of components addressed in a previous recall campaign.the parts are being replaced at my cost and will be retained along with the service invoice. updated 07/24/2012 *js information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6)
