Long story short...I had the G8 in several weeks ago for some warranty work (when all this recall mess had been going on for about a week) and I mentioned this to the dealer. They did a search and knew nothing about it. A week later, I got the recall letter in the mail.
Got my recall done last week. Now the airbag light is flashing...and they wonder why we don't like bringing our cars to the dealer! I think they scratched my wheel last time too but I can't prove it. Back to the dealer next week...FML!
I had the same thing happen yesterday with the recall. I went back a few hours later and they checked it out, apparently from what they told me, the tech forgot the final step to finish the reset. Was real quick for them to fix. Sorry to hear about your wheel!! Thats also why I hate going to the dealership!! Had it happen on my old truck, on a 24" wheel.
