#3 - Instrument Panel problem of the 2007 Volkswagen Jetta
The car involved is a 2007 Volkswagen Jetta. Speedometer reads incorrectly. When speedometer reads 70 mph, actual travel speed is 65. This is based on my gps in the car. Called vw (ref#70260633) and both the dealership and the customer care number said that a 5 mph differential was within sae specifications. Not knowing how fast a car is traveling is a accident precursor. Driving too slow on the interstate can lead to accidents from the rear, and trying to guess how fast you are going to compensate can lead to excessive speeds. This instrument panel problem happened on Tue., May. 1, 2007.

#4 - Instrument Panel problem of the 2007 Volkswagen Jetta
The vehicle having this issue was a 2007 Volkswagen Jetta. Speedometer reading at least 10% faster than actual speed. Brought car back to the dealer explaining the inaccuracy, was told verbally speedometers are gauges not meters and can only be designed to guess the actual speed, they cannot report actual speeds. Written explanation was a 5 mph difference is a normal variation of speedometers by all auto manufacturers and the car was performing as accurately as all other vehicles. Technician, who also drives a Jetta, test drove the car and noted speed readings were the same as his Jetta at similar rpms. His car is also apparently reporting speed 10% faster than his actual speed. At freeway speeds the 10% variance in speed accuracy is greater than the 5 mph difference to be expected in accordance with their explanation. This issue happened on Saturday, September 25, 2010.

#12 - Instrument Panel problem of the 2002 Volkswagen Jetta
The vehicle involved was a 2002 Volkswagen Jetta. The VIN of this Jetta is 3VWTG69MX2_. I have had several problems with my mil light since my 5 yr/50,000 mile warranty expired-in fact, I have lost count as to how many times I've had to take my car in (the number of failures listed below is just an estimate). The first time this light came on, the car had 52 or 54 miles on it. It was only a few days old. Apparently something had cracked. In March of this year, three of the cables broke, then not two weeks later the other three broke. The problems just kept adding up. I have tried to be patient with this dealership, but simply cannot understand why on average, I end up back at the dealership, getting my car serviced on average, two weeks after the car's initial appointment. The last time I went in, I spoke with the manager. First, he disparagingly asked me if I was making sure to fill the gas tank with premium gas, as is written on the gas flap. He then proceeded to ask if I was tightening the gas cap. He reassured me that I should not have further problems with this specific part, because all the parts pertaining to this specific light have been replaced. Lo and behold, two days ago, my mil light went on. On average, each time I visit this particular dealership service department, I end up paying $350-600 dollars. Somehow, that does not seem right. I have been following the service department's instructions, and to my dismay, this long-standing, extremely expensive problem has not been resolved. This instrument panel problem happened on Sep. 6, 2006.

The speedometer in any occasions does not mark the speed but if it marks the miles that are covered and it doesâ´t turn on the light of check engine to be able to know that it is trumping the speedometer, sometimes meanwhile the car lighting and in movement it stops working it is not the first car that I see that the same problem has this I meet more than 7 persons who have the same problem and who when we take it to the agency say to us that it does not have any shortcoming or perhaps it is some sensor that does not work but the car does not light the light of check engine to warn that a sensor has to be replaced I suppose myself that it is already a shortcoming of the speedometer.
