I guarantee they printed it on the spot.

Yeah, that makes much more sense. Still, that's spooky. Who exactly is driving through parking lots that has a license plate reader to know this?
There are a lot of Police Dept's near me that can't even afford these plate readers

I think the VIN plate is visable to anyone. The dealership hires some kid to cruise around looking for vehicles that have recalls. He punches the VIN into a laptop that contains recall service records and they can tell immediately whether you’ve had the service or not. I doubt PD has anything to do with this. More likely some enterprising dealership trying to drum up work for the service department. Get you in for the free recall service then up sell you to the $400 injector cleaner service, $500 transfer case flush, etc.

Are the 2012s a part of this recall? I don’t think I’ve gotten anything in the mail about it.

if i'm reading correctly, those of you with the Rock Hard sport cage, removing the bar that runs across the dash is all that needs to come off?

I need to get mine in and have put it off thinking I need to remove the entire cage.

Does anyone know if they had to flash the ECU?

I don’t think you need to remove any of the cage. The airbags are in the steering wheel (driver) and under a dash panel (passenger). I’m pretty sure the latter can be removed without messing with the cage cross bar.

Yes, I agree on the up sale. Twice on recalls my former dealer tried to up sale me for brakes, trans fluid change, and oil change. And once tried to tell me I needed to pay $80 for alignment after the clock spring recall. I then called out the dealer
manager who watched me align the tie rod to straighten out the steering wheel. Former dealer, since here in So Cal
there's a Jeep dealer every 20 miles or so.

I'm pretty sure they have to flash the ECU because when I got mine back the tpms light was on. I used my procal to set them to 0 as I don't have tpms valve stems. Also my speedo is off again.

Not sure if they HAVE to pull the entire dash, but my dealership did pull the whole dash out when they did it 6 months ago, I watched them do it.

Wasn't a long job.

As far as the ECU, I'm not sure if they flashed it or not, they definitely pulled the battery while doing the job etc. but I flashed my ECU to stock before taking it in (always) just in case.

Great, I just got this in the mail! Sounds like they are having the same metal fragment problem Subaru were having. Maybe they can fix my AC/Heat recirculation door while they are in there.

It’s a metal fragment issue on the passenger side. Apparently a screen on the passenger airbag. I just let a dealer have it. Took about 1 1/2 hours. They removed my whole dash.
