FR-S RECALL

so unfortunately i'm one of the lucky 86 owners who's car was manufactured through said date and i'm not really sure on what to do , i've heard of people taking in their 86's to the dealership and having to pay around 10k and that's pretty much worth more than what i payed for my car and i don't know what to do so i thought i would ask you guys

A recall is to correct a serious defect due to engineering or manufacturing error.

It won’t cost you anything out of pocket.

It’s possible a shady dealer might take advantage of the uninformed. Be informed.

I dont think you are familiar with the recall, or you have been lied to.

considering that they need to pull the motor out of the car to perform the recall, it's going to leave a lot of angry techs and service writers. so i would be prepared for a ghost list of things the car 'needs' before it leaves, but other then declining whatever they manage to 'find', there shouldn't be any charge.

Do research on all the dealerships in your area. There are bad ones and you want avoid returning for repairs they screwed up. You should pay a total of $0. If any dealer says any cost is on you go somewhere else. The good dealers will give you a rental for free.

Recall work is paid for by the mfg.
You may need to take the car to a dealer and leave it for a couple days.
Depending on the dealer you may get a loan car, or have to provide your own transport while it's being done.

They shouldn't be charging you for the valve spring work itself.

Dealerships are paid parity, i.e. retail labor rate, for warranty repairs. They usually welcome the recall business. It's profitable if they beat the flat rate book labor allowance, lets the master techs do something more interesting than quick maintenance service jobs, and gives the new vehicle sales side a chance to interact with customers they may not have seen in a while.

It's the angry customers who will need TLC and dealerships have gotten much better at that than the old days before warranty parity incentivized quality repairs and customer relations.

You don't have to do anything until you get a letter in the mail. That will tell you what you have to do.

Like others said, the valve spring recall ain't gonna cost ya nutten.

that's the theory. i've met plenty of techs that despise doing warranty work because it usually pays less, and just as many service writers that hate it because it consumes a bay that multiples of shorter term jobs could be filling.
