Thanks for your (fast) reply. Do you have any information about the recall? Do you know where I can find documentation? How can I negotiate with a dealer if he tries to charge me for the fix?
Under what circumstances would I NOT be covered? I have 74,000 miles on a 2002 model, so I'm covered under the 10 year/157,500 miles clause.
