I thought that recall started over a year ago and recently they decided it applied to all PM's. That was when they added the 14s to the list to make it ALL gas pm's right up to the new ones.

I don’t think ‘20 s are included. At least I haven’t got a recall on it yet

Correct, the recall notice says "2014 through 2019".
Both this one and the cooling fan recall (2015-2018) are still stalled waiting for parts.
Better guard that 2020 of yours, KOV. :devilish:

Maybe they'll sell some 2020's as parts vehicles? ;-)

Anyone else here looking at this companies parts as a solution?


For about $30 shipped, could be a good part. I ordered one and will report when it comes in.

Got the aftermarket bushing in the mail today. That company sends them out quickly. Busy this afternoon, but I'll look at it tomorrow. If my old one seems loose or is damaged in any way, I'll pop this in. If the old one is OK, I'll keep it in the glove box as a spare.

Finally got to my shift cable bushing this afternoon. Doing a bunch of Spring cleaning on the van, so I took a look into it. You can see and access it from opening the hood. No need for ramps. Mine was still very firmly attached and I could not pull it free by hand. I took that as a good sign and will carry this new bushing kit with me as a spare. Looks like a 10-15 minute job to replace. Not a big deal at all unless you are stuck without one somewhere.

I've scheduled my repair with the dealer early in December, does anyone know how long it typically takes to complete the work? I'm looking to schedule a road trip as soon as possible after it's done. Looking online at the Shift Cable Bushing kit @uralwrench mentioned, it looks like a quick/easy repair, but just wondering if anyone's had a shop do it, and how long it took.

I video the actual repair at the dealer and from the replay, it took them less than 1/2 hr to do it. The dealer drop off process took longer than that.

The dealer had my van for a full day, for both the shift cable and fan recall repairs.

Thank you! That helps my planning process!
Always factor in extra time. If I recall correctly, my dealer casually mentioned the recall would take "an hour and 15 maybe". I also had them change the oil and check my battery, to which they said "Maybe 3 hours then". It took the better part of 5 hours... As @Uvan said, a big chunk of that is just dealer admin overhead. My van sat around in the service centre parking lot for quite a while before it was taken into the service bays. And after it was done, they took some time doing up the paperwork and finding me (I was lounging in the showroom using their wifi to research van upgrades...).
