Urgent recall?

Just checking the messages on my Answer phone and have one from Grantham Honda stating there is a recall on my Civic and they want to book in asap. The messages didn't say what for, I can only presume it's for one of the many faults I've logged.

Well have to wait till Monday now before I can phone them to find out what it is, then I can phone a different dealer to get it booked in with them.

Dont think so, all they did was phone me to tell me it needed doing. Ask them when you go in for the other jobs.

But i dont think they will call you if you havent previously made your dealer aware of the problem.
You will have to ask for it to be done

Perhaps all your faults are going to be rectified....or...a new car?

Called Lincoln Honda yesterday but everyone on the service desk was busy so left a message. They called back 2 1/2 hours later, talking to the lady trying to arrange a date. I asked her what the actual problem was, she said she would have to go onto the Honda database to find out and would call me back. That was over 24 hours ago... This was one of the reason why I left Grantham Honda.

I did receive a letter today from Honda stating that the recall was for the Multiplex/fusebox and I need to get it booked in ASAP!
