RECALL notification

Postby swan810 [OP] » Dec 06 2012, 7:36am

Hey everyone, I just got a recall notification in the mail. Does anyone know what it might be about? I have a 2011 5.3 crew 4x4. I have to call tomorrow, just thought I'd ask.

The notice should tell you what it's about.

notice didn't say, just that there's a recall, and to call to find out if my vin is apart of it.... not trying to be rude, but if the notice had said, I wouldn't be asking

Mine was the tranny fluid dipstick filler tube. The AFM vibrates and has shown to possibly crack it. If it's cracked, they replace it, if not, they wrap it to prevent it.

I'm taking my truck in on Friday AM to get it serviced.

If anyone has any questions if the recall pertains to their vehicle, I can check the status if you send the VIN#. Also keep us posted if the recall resolves the issue. Thank you and have a great week!

Hello,

I did run the VINs and neither appear to have any open recalls on you vehicles as of the moment. If you any issues occurring, please address them with your dealership to have taken care of. Do reach out if you any other questions or concerns. Thank you and have a great week!
