TACHOMETER AND SPEEDOMETER NEEDLES RANDOMLY FELL OFF. I WAS JUST DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD, AND THE TACHOMETER NEEDLE FELL OFF, AND ABOUT A WEEK LATER, THE SPEEDOMETER NEEDLE DID THE SAME. I TOOK OFF THE BEZEL AND IT SEEMS THAT THE PLASTIC SHAFT THAT HOLDS THE NEEDLE IN PLACE WAS CRACKED IN SEVERAL PLACES, THAT NEGATIVELY AFFECTED ITS ABILITY TO HOLD ON TO THE METAL SHAFT IN THE CLUSTER. THIS IS NOTHING THAT WAS DONE TO THE CAR, THIS IS A MANUFACTURER'S DEFECT. THIS SHOULD BE COVERED UNDER RECALL, SINCE I CAN'T DRIVE THE CAR AND KNOW EXACTLY HOW FAST I'M GOING.

9/17/2015 - FOREST PARK, IL
WHILE DRIVING ON THE INTERSTATE THE SPEEDOMETER NEEDLE, AND THE TACHOMETER NEEDLE FELL OFF OF THEIR GAUGES. IN ADDITION THE GAS GAUGE NOW NO LONGER PROPERLY REGISTERS THE AMOUNT OF FUEL IN THE TANK SO I AM LEFT TO ESTIMATE. ALL THREE POSE A SAFETY RISK TO ME AS A DRIVER INCREASING THE POSSIBILITY OF MY SPEEDING INADVERTENTLY, RUNNING OUT OF GAS IN ISOLATED LOCATIONS, OR DRIVING THE CAR AT HIGH RPM. ALL 3 ITEMS OCCURRED WITH NO OTHER UNUSUAL INCIDENT IN THE CAR, NO BUMP, NO ACCIDENT OR ANY OTHER EVENT THAT ONE WOULD EXPECT IS REQUIRED TO DISLODGE A NEEDLE FROM ITS GAUGE.
