Inaccurate fuel gage

The complaint has been made that the above vehicles have an inaccurate fuel quantity indicator (deviation from the actual quantity in the tank on the instrument cluster display).

The cause for the above-mentioned issue is a software error in the control unit (instrument cluster).


A software update is performed for the control unit (instrument cluster) in the contract garage. This adjusts the fuel quantity display.


The measure will be documented in the service book.
