I recently got in line for this recall. Reading the many posts concerning this issue, and having just bought my Solstice last June, I was under the impression GM was really dragging their feet on getting this done. After a bit of research, the information I'm getting is that it went into full effect in February 2018.
We live in a McDonald's society where people want things done their way - and done yesterday - but reality has a way of doing what it wants when it wants.
I was initially going to suggest the forum consider starting a petition that could be sent to the NHTSA demanding quicker action. And down the line that may still be an option. But personally, I don't think we're there just yet. If we're in the same boat this time next year, I'll be the first to sign!
I just located this website that fully explains this recall. It gives in-depth information and includes photos along with the procedure.
I hope this helps. And if by next June most of us haven't had this procedure done. Then let's start thinking about a massive petition to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Food for thought: Due to our funky federal laws, "technically" the Kappa platform could be considered "defective" due to this recall. It is against federal law to sell, even on a personal basis at a yard sale, an item that is under recall without it first being repaired. With that in mind, is it against federal law for any dealership (new or used) to sell a Kappa?
Note this paragraph from the website link: Attention: It is a violation of Federal law for a dealer to deliver a new motor vehicle or any new or used item of motor vehicle equipment (including a tire) covered by this notification under a sale or lease until the defect or noncompliance is remedied.
The paragraph kind of weasels it's way around federal law by not including "new or used
motor vehicle" in the sentence.
We've gone down a slippery slope in this country with some of our consumer and environmental laws. Government overreach at it's finest.
I know some will question the yard sale recall statement, so I'm adding these links:
