I just found out that my instrument cluster needs replacement. I have a 2001 TT Roadster conv purchased new when they first came out baseball leather and the show care color of that year. Garaged kept never driben in winter only highway driving. Just turned 40,000 miles as of 9/30/11. 4 years ago glove box lock $900.00 + 2years ago sensor $1200.00 2 years ago computer $2000.00. Now instrument cluster $$$$$$$ ???? I can just imagine. I am at my wits end.

I have same year, leather etc...but have not had any trouble (with half of your miles) except the cluster _ _ _ _! However you are out of time for the class action... which should miff you even more since Audi obviously has a faulty part - and you shouldn't have to have pay when your cluster dies outside of their time frame. Especially at 40k miles.
I suggest you read post #40 and follow its advice....(mine starts at #58)
If anyone has a suggestion for a group communication to Audi - I'm all ears...
Also has anyone found an extended warranty program that is satisfactory?
I still can't believe I qualified for the cluster rebate (but was sent a voucher for repair)
I reminded them I sent in the repair bill with the class action lawsuit and they never sent the reimbursement. How lame is that for what was a 3 Audi family? ---

I called Audi USA the day I posted this and they said Sorry No Joy!!
I called again last week and they got back to me yesterday. I am to take my TT to the dealer Pay $125.00 to have it checked out. If it is the Instrument Cluster they agreed to pay $1300.00 If it's anything else it's on me. I think that is the proper thing to do even though the car is over eleven years old.
Let's wait and see but my opinion of Audi USA is about to change. Thanks for all the input.

I absolutely agree that its the right thing for them to do. In fact I'm wondering why I couldn't get the same consideration when I called them directly as well - a couple of years ago.
In fact you have inspired me. I'll wait to hear how it turns out for you before I call again.

Looking into buying a 2001 TT that had its instrument cluster replaced about 1.5 yrs ago. Any idea if the instrument cluster will go bad again, because it is just a faulty product, or should I be ok, or 50/50 shot? Thanks for the help.

I wish I could help you but I have no idea if Audi updated the instrument cluster, if not I would think that eventually you will have a problem. Sorry I couldn't help

No problem. I appreciate the response. I spoke an audi tech, and he informed me that there is an updated instrument cluster, and based on the part #, he could tell. Therefore, I am waiting back to here if the replaced instrument cluster was the updated one.

Audi America came thru. I have a replacement instrument cluster and new battery compliments of Audi. Remember I purchased this new in 2000 for big $
and only have 40,000 miles. Good Luck I can give you 1 piece of advice. I had to call several times and talked to several reps before I found a good conclusion. Good Luck
