We got a letter in the mail for the seatbelt pretensioners. It basically just alerted us to the issue and told us to wait for a second letter, because they were waiting for parts. Obviously we want this fixed, but not something that will stop us from using the car.

That control arm fastener issue sounds more serious, though.
