Location:
San Francisco, CA

i own a 2000 audi tt and the audi dealer service confirms that the tt's instrument panel has an internal problem which requires replacement of the instrument cluster at a cost estimate of $1193.13. the tt has a known instrument cluster failure problem and audi has provided relief to owners regarding the instrument failure in both the uk and the us. the car has less than 75,000 mile on it and instrument failure at this low mileage is unacceptable. audi says the car is out of warranty and they would do nothing, which seems like a ridiculous response as the problems affects the speedometer and safety warning lights. the instrument panel can only be replaced by the dealer to preserve auto settings. this type of safety defect should be the responsibility of the manufacturer. *tr
