I don't quite understand.My 08 CR-V EX 4WD just got the letter for the recall yesterday. I had looked on safecar.gov and found the letter that listed all the effected cars, and my vin 9th and 10th numbers were 28. These numbers looked like it was not going to make my CR-V need the recall. I called the dealership that sold me the CR-V and he said it was. Does this sound weird, and what difference in (if any) can you tell when driving the car is noticed after the computer is reflashed?
Is it only ones with certain 9th and 10th numbers that require the recall ? my numbers are 67 .
Regardless , I will probably never take mine in for that modification because mine is an American car purchased in USA and brought into Canada to save big $$$ by the previous owner . Canada Honda dealers will not honor warranty or recalls on US vehicles so I would have to take it to a USA dealer. Closest one is about 3 hour drive each way.
My transmission works super smooth with sooner than recommended fluid changes and I drive sensibly and never do any gear jamming back and forth (which is apparently what the recall is for) so I don't expect to have any problems with it.
