Re: Rumor...ba Recall

There was a recall at the start of BA launch RCMC277 steering shaft check where you would just turn the steering wheel full lock both ways and if nothing broke it wss okay. Only other thing I can think of is the TSB 51/03 where you hear a clicking type noise at low speeds.

LOL!, yea.. "I'll have a a XR8 manual with leather, brake shudder, REX, sports steering wheel, steering problems a sports gear shifter."

Dealer:

Seriously though it just sounds like a check more than a recall, atleast its not as bad as saving your power steering hose rupture
