Any issue with a car should be dealt with as a issue and not based on severity, If the tech drives the vehicle and verifies that it does as the customer states they may consider it non severe but they are not sitting in traffic with the issue either.

The TSB that was released and recalled was for vehicles built on or before 08/12/11, What changed after 08/12/11 that they were not affected by this TSB?
Individual situations are handled on a case-by-case basis, and I want you to keep me updated on any changes, as that is the best way to ease your concerns. I can't speculate on why TSBs are for certain date ranges, as that is from the engineers, but I can ensure any updated are noted in the system, and escalated to your CSM.

PratoN - How did your dealer visit go? Please PM me your VIN, contact information, mileage, & servicing dealer name/state and I'll assist.
