Exactly... seeing as how my BG went out on me. But the sample is to small at the moment.

Not sure if your on this forum...
I saw that, too, and replied to the post (waiting for a response) asking if the replacement pump's metal, instead of plastic, was the fix/cause of all the pump failures. If i get a response ill post it here, btw, my car is a '14 and on the "recall" list tho so far so good with no leaking.

Anyone with a CCTA engine have the service action come up for their VIN? Seems that most/all that have posted that the service action came up have CBFA engines.

Nothing for my 2013 CCTA. Been refreshing the recall page the last several days.

dumb question; this should be a fairly routine repair right? i should be able to take it to the dealership, select the "wait" option, and be in/out in 2-3 hours?

Depends on how busy they are, but mine took nearly twice as long the first time around.

Mine wasn't on the recall page; it is now. It's a 2014 DE, CBFA engine. Don't know how I ended up with a CBFA in Miami Florida, but that's what it is. Other than our beloved water pumps, the car has had no issues. I'm now coming up on 27k miles. The 1st water pump had failed almost immediately, at 9k miles. They kept the car overnite after replacing the pump. The service manager told me they wanted to run it around town a while to make sure it didn't leak. And it hasn't since. I just checked my pump version from the invoice, it is the 'BB' pump, not the BG pump. Like many of you here have said, I don't really like the idea of removing and replacing the pump that's working just fine. Dunno....I'll see what the service manager says when it goes in for the 30k service. That should be in the fall sometime.

When I had my water pump replaced I had to drop it off and get a ride home. They wouldn't let me wait with it—even though I showed up 4 hours before closing time. I think for starters they have to wait for the engine to cool off first. And even after the repair they'll want to hang onto it to make sure it won't be leaving another puddle behind.

I'm sure if you show up first thing in the morning they'll have the whole thing done on the same day. But waiting for the whole repair won't be fun at all. And this is coming from someone who is very stubborn about waiting for repairs too.
