Is your vehicle part of the alternator recall, and if so has it been done?

Re: Charging system light came on and systems started to go down

I don't remember getting anything on the alternator. There was a recall on an issue which was making the car just die all together while driving it. That has allegedly been fixed but I wonder now if it's part of the issue. Had the car looked at though and mechanic said water pump is leaking coolant badly and he thinks it leaked on belt and cause it to slip and light came on due to that. May not even be an issue with the alternator
