2001 Audi Tt convertible: The horn just stopped working one day, the instrument cluster display started to not display clearly then the car seem to lack power when starts up, car then would not start in the mornings, then the car would not start after being left for more than 20 minutes, and the car would often totally shut off while stopped at a red light then automatically turn back on again all by itself. The brake lights also stayed on at all times even when the car was completely shut off. Ignition coils also caught on fire after check engine light was on for only a few hours. The convertible top warning light is flashing on the instrument cluster, and there is a rattling noise coming from the convertible top latch area while driving. Consequences: Dangerous life threatening situations, fear, stress, financial burden/hardship, time consuming, and extreme inconvenience. Repairs: Horn was repaired, instrument cluster was replaced, convertible top rattle and warning light not repaired, brake system was replaced, and coils all replaced.

The brakes failed on the 2001 Audi Tt sportscar. The first time the car crashed. The Audi dealer said there was nothing wrong with the brakes. A few months later the brakes failed again, and fortunately the car did not crash. Again, Audi insists the brakes are fine, but obviously, something is seriously wrong. I am afraid to drive the car.
