problem #1

Aug 032017


  • 5,000 miles
The car purchased in Dec 2016. When driving the vehicle when it was raining outside; drivers visibity reduced greatly, making the car unsafe to drive. Audi replaced the wipers but denied there was any problem! though, avoiding driving in the rain, I complianed to Audi several times. It was in August of 2017, when Audi finally admitted to me, they have a problem with the windshield. Their solution was to put some "film" on the windsheild" in my view, there should be a major recall on all 2017 Audi A3 for windsheild replacement. Does anyone know, how many accidents were caused in this vehicle due to poor visibilty" please investigate this matter. I truly beleive this is a serious problem. Also, if a "film" is applied will that compromise the integrity of the windsheild in the future" whta if the film wears off, etc. My windshield cracked, the dealer says road debris caused it.
