    lines through display and faded parts. Why isn't this a recall issue?

    My gas gauge has been reading funky and recently the digital displace went out. I currently only have notifications showing if the car is in park, reverse etc. the rest above is completely out.

    Lines through the digital display and low contrast on the characters. Apparently not designed reliably to last. Low tech analog gauges would have been better as they would not be expected to fail as regularly as these do..

    Digital display on instrument panel has lines through it. Also I notice that on hot days I can barely read anything on the display like it fades in heat. In winter the display seems to work fairly well (when the inside of the car is cool).

    Digital Display panel would fade out after about 1 hour. It became a shorter of period of time over the years and now it is faded to the point that you can't read it right from the start.
