I saw this the other day when I looked at my VIN in TOPIx. I thought it was more of a "needs to be done sometime" rather than a true recall. I'm not in the mood to take it back to the dealer anytime soon, so I'll probably wait on this one. :)

Nothing too serious anyhow, you can get around to it when you can ;)

They actually told me about this when I was in for my oil change. Of course they didn't have any new lights in stock.........

But no problem so far.

Mine was in for the continued B pilar ticking and an audio rattling in my front passenger door.

They also addressed the recall with the license plate lights.

They tried something new for the B pilar (apparently Jags have had a similar issue in the past).

My speaker was replaced, but the rattle is still there when any bass is played.

Go back to dealership again tomorrow.
