Or a 2003... just saw this myself.

At first I thought it was gonna be the 05s, I was like Oh no it's been a few model years since there's been a recall!

It's a goofy deal, too. If the latch/lock assembly "looks" ok, they'll just grease it and put on a sticker. Who DOESN'T lube the hinges and latches now and again? Seems like regular maintenance to me.

I've heard about some people complaining about rust on the rear hatch too.

Well, I have a 2003 and looked at mine and no rust or corrosion.
