What he said ! I have 2 08s so I got 2 letters. It gives you 10 years or 120k to claim it, why would you want to take it in now if you have no problem?

My thinking was getting it fixed now rather then being stuck somewhere out in bumfuck Egypt with power loss/hesitation in the future.

When the dealership plugs in and finds no codes, they are not going to just replace it based on what you have told them. Then you've waisted 2 or 3 hours sitting at the dealership.

It clearly states not to bring it in if you haven't experienced the issue.

i got mine. i just picked mine up from the dealer from the new trans install and now it sometimes seems to loose power for a moment after leaving from a dead stop? Ironic Timing? Plug(s) Wire(s) causing a miss? who knows...ill let them deal with it.
