Default tie rod recall

Has anyone had the tie rod recall done? I just got my recall letter and was wondering if anyone else got the same letter and what was done.

Got mine a couple of weeks ago as well. The work was completed last Friday, they also gave the front end an alignment, at no charge. Guess that is typical when tie rods are replaced.

They told me that only the toe in will be checked for spec and that a full alignment will not be needed or done. Am I getting ripped off ???

Is this a Recall for all 09's or just certain build dates?

Default I had it done

I had mine done about 3 weeks ago. It took about an hour to complete, change out the ends and align. My dealer said they are doing all 2009s, I had read that it was just certain models but they told me that they are doing all of them.






Enjoy the Ride!

I also need to get this service done shortly. The toe is the only thing that will need to be set for the tie rods assuming your alignment isn't out of adjustment before you have the tie rods changed

It still has to be adjusted because it has to be screwed into the center link or drag link what ever it's called and then you tighten the clamp if they're just changing the tie rod end. I could be wrong but I don't see it any other way. Last I checked my wasn't on the recall list but it could have been added since then.

Just had this done last Friday... Said I needed a full alignment that (was not covered) by the recall. However, my local dealership isn't the best.
