So glad your dealer is more efficient than mine. I had three recalls taken care of at once- brake booster shield, TIPM relay & sun visor and my Jeep was in the shop all day. No damage to the sun viser/headliner so I guess it was worth being without my Jeep for the day. But as some others have stated I would rather get the recalls taken care of and be put out a little or in my case the day, than have a possible bigger issue down the road.

Yup, is fast and doesn't require massive disassembly. Only issue I had on mine is that the inner roof wasn't properly snapped back up into place all along the length, which took me about 30 seconds to fix.
However, I did mention it on the service satisfaction survey and my next oil change and air filter change is on the house--and even logged onto my online service record by the service manager.

Pretty much any service can become a nightmare, particularly if the dealer sucks in the first place.

Worrying about service becoming a nightmare is a bigger nightmare, In My Non-Humble Opinion, than the service itself.

You should be able to tell your dealer you decline the recall--if they don't agree, see how far away the next dealer is. It just stays on your VIN for anyone to pull via CarFax, etc. and you probably don't care a bit.

The original instructions for the recalls were a bit overdone and time consuming compared to what a couple good techs can really do--and do well.

They can all be done in less than half a day if the dealer uses multiple techs instead of having a single tech do everything.

Fingerprints come off with a bit of dilute Woolite. Sometimes you need a Mr Clean Magic Eraser, but even on the light frost they are trivial to get rid of...

Not that I don't take pictures to harass the service manager with...

It is a liability, but it is your vehicle. A dealer might ask you to initial the area of the work order indicating "declined" but they cannot force you to repair it. They may urge you, but you don't have to give them the vehicle or the key.

Your insurance company might decline to pay you anything if the recall is at all related to a future claim. Someone else's insurance company might go after you if you are involved in an accident with an outstanding brake booster recall that parts are available for, and your insurance company may forget your phone number since that is contributory negligence...

But, it is your vehicle... unless you are making payments or leasing, in which case the bank might have some expensive surprises for you as well.

Oh wow...that nice lumber got scorched, too. Eeek!

SERIOUSLY, that's nasty. Where did the fire originate?

Exactly.

To put it in perspective, the recall notice says, "The sun visor vanity lamp wiring on your vehicle may experience a high resistance short after a service repair to the sun visor, headliner or while gaining access above the headliner. This may result in an inoperative vanity lamp and increase risk of fire."

That condition does not apply to my vehicle. I'll have this recall service performed if it ever does apply (if that area needs to be accessed for whatever reason). From what I understand, in the original design it was possible to inadvertently drive a screw through the wiring while reassembling the headliner, thus causing a short that could lead to a fire.

In general I definitely prefer to have recall work performed, hence the title of the thread.

Hot spot seemed to be on the roof above the seat from the paint pealing and cracking.
