NHTSA Campaign ID # 10V488000

I just came across a recall notice for 2004 through 2010 K's all versions for possible corrosion of the link lever bearings. Anybody hear about this one yet?

This is similar to a recall that was done in the UK last year. It references possible corrosion in the bearings of the lower rear suspension link.

There's more info in this thread.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Thanks Ken. Sounds like the same recall. I'll call the dealer tomorrow and find out what they have to say about this.
