Re: Driveshaft recall?

Not accurate. Believe recalls must be published in newspapers and I havent seen anything. He might be talking about a technical bulletin for service departments - recommended vehicle updates that are done during normal servicing.

I have a Dec 04 Ghia does any one know what the symptoms are ? Mine seems to have a whine and chatter.

I am taking it to the dealer tomorrow.

Will keep you posted.

Re: Driveshaft recall?

I have a Dec 04 Ghia, and everything (except the parts that are supposed to make a noise) are silent. I have had no problems with 7,000Kms on her, and it goes fine. This 'recall' is it for Rear Wheel Drive models or AWD models? I have the AWD, and frequently drive the car under HARD acceleration, and everything feels fine. My car may have missed the cut off although.
