NHTSA 14v-391

Anyone else receive a recall notice for WK2s "manufactured January 5, 2010, through December 11, 2013" about faulty wiring relating to a sun visor ?

I recall seeing a video about a year ago about a fire that seemed to be in the headliner but the notice implies that it applies only "after a service repair is performed. "

YWTK.

Re: NHTSA 14v-391

Yes, I received the recall notice...it was in the news not long ago, so was not unexpected. Since I recently had a pano repair, I'm glad this is going to get checked out.

Gory details

It appears they want to check/fix all of them, whether or not they've had prior repair, in what could be an excess of caution due to election years and congresscritters wanting to be on prime time. You'd think they'd do the upgrade on any future repair to save some money and owner aggravation.

Re: NHTSA 14v-391

I guess the potential for fire is what it is!

Re: NHTSA 14v-391

Shows what the search is good for (looked for 14v-391 & nada). Thought the video was about a year ago. Oh well dealer hasn't gotten the recall kit for my brake booster in yet, will have them check when in.

Re: NHTSA 14v-391

I got mine yesterday and it said to contact the dealer, but not before Sept 15, to schedule my visit. I guess they want to give enough time for them to get repair parts in. Any bets on whether I go in and they have to order the parts. Probably shouldn't go in until the parts for my JGC are in. We'll see.
