Just curious , for all of you that have had the recall done. I bought a 2018 and the block heater had not been changed. They got it done but took almost 5 hours . I knew I was getting a load of B.S. but they had it on the rack by then. How long did they take to change out your block heater?

Warranty/Recall stuff doesn't pay well.

Most will take 'em in and rack 'em, but if a good rate paying job comes in, they'll divert labor over to it and come back to the low pay job, when they get a chance.

Maybe the job(s) ahead took longer than expected?

Other customer(s) probably had appointments too..


Did they give you a loaner to drive so you could go about your business?

at or below −18 C (0 F). Vehicles
with an engine heater should be
plugged in at least four hours before
starting. An internal thermostat in
the plug-end of the cord may exist,
which will prevent engine heater
operation at temperatures above
−18 C (0 F)."

MAY is the key word.



FWIW, I don't use the block heater (and don't see temps below 0*F very often, but lots of 0*F to 10*F).


I'd much rather let 'elevated idle' do it's thing and warm the transmission as well as the coolant.
Typically this creates the warmest trans oil temperature of the day.

Warm coolant via the heater, heats the trans fluid quicker.

No loaners, but they knew they were about to lose my business so they threw in 5 oil and fuel filter changes. I told them I wouldn't sign the papers until they finished the job. I almost thought they didn't have the parts and were waiting to get them in. Who knows?
