Mine showed up 2011 cbfa. I had it replaced last winter around 30k. I wish it had more details about how many miles this "inspection" will be good for.

Woa, we are awfully close in failure mileage and current, lol. Failed around 10k, currently sit at 21k on my 2014 with the replacement pump.

I'm thinking to just wait. If it ain't broke, maybe not fix it? Might get a crappy tech who ends up doing more damage than good during the repair. Might not worth the headache just yet.

His video was made well before this notice though. Just turned 48k on my ccta this morning and seems to be no issue yet. Just out of curiosity. What engine code do you guys have that are showing up with the recall/service campaign listed for yours? I have the extended warranty through 100k so i would be covered anyway. This is a good thing that they are doing something about it though.
My engine is CBFA.

2013 Drivers Edition - got the news that I qualify. Though due to ankle surgery, I won't be driving anywhere for another couple weeks. Guess I can make an appointment for them to inspect at that point.

Now I have had my coolant tank become completely empty, thinking it was the water pump failure, only to be told, the water pump was fine, and sometimes it just dumps all the coolant for no apparent reason. They refilled, and I have been fine every since. Still can't figure out how the entire coolant tank can drain itself for no apparent reason.

My 2014 CBFA showed up as needing action, but I do not plan to go to the dealership unless I absolutely have to. I would rather have them give me the parts and take it to someone I know I can trust.

Yep. Mine is live, too. Of course, the 1st one was replaced already at 9k miles. It's got 25k now, so maybe.............................

Well that makes sense.

This is only a service campaign, so they will just check and see if it's leaking, if not you will be sent on your way. I would rather they extend the warranty like the intake manifold.

Well I will be making the drive to San Diego for BIG SoCal Euro in early September, which is about 150 miles.

Last year I was on my way home from that same event when mine went out. Luckily I had just made it home. Went back down to grab my luggage and there was piss everywhere.

So maybe this time i'll get the new one just before going down there.

I hate when I see these water pump threads. Since this car is basically my only car I'll be SOL if this thing goes out. But I am glad to see the extension of warranty repair/replacing.
