The contact owns a 2003 Volkswagen Passat. The contact noticed that the radio was malfunctioning. He took the vehicle to the dealer and a technician stated that the stereo failed due to unknown causes, and the entire system needed to be replaced. The contact has not had the vehicle repaired because it exceeded its warranty. The manufacturer did not provide any assistance. The failure mileage was 95,000 and current mileage was 109,000.
