Default Timing chain recall 2011 QX56

Came into the dealership this morning (May 6, 2016) for a routine oil change. Service Advisor informed me of a very newly issued recall for a new timing chain on our 2011 QX56 with 40,122 miles. Wow, was I surprised. I wasn't experiencing any issues and all servicing performed at the dealer.

Thumbs up

called my dealer (Pepe in White Plains NY)... They said it came out yesterday and that it's tied to your VIN (so you need to talk to your dealer to know if you are eligible). Taking mine in on Monday. What a relief as I'm at 90k and the car sputters under soft acceleration (even with new fuel pump, etc) and sounds like crap when it starts on colder days which makes me think my car's days are numbered till this blows up.

Yes I'm eligeable. When service advisor pulled up my vehicles records for the oil change, the recall was attached automatically. This is a welcome blessing for many. I have an appointment next Wednesday.

Wondering for those folks who paid to have this done outside of warranty would those funds be reimburseable.

i probably wouldn't hold my breath but that would be nice.

this recall gives me more confidence to fight the urge to sell the car when my warranty expires, as they seem to be pretty reliable otherwise.

My 12 is marked for recall. I paid for 1/2 in 2014 and got assistance for the other half. Hopefully I can get the rest of my money back.

Just did the cats last week ($5k), which I believe were fouled from the timing chain.

I have an appointment scheduled for this Monday coming up. Being that I'm at 86k, does anyone have any suggestions on anything that should be done while it's torn down?

Let them check the CATS if it hasn't been replaced yet.

I was under the impression when one brings their vehicle into a dealership for service, there is a multi-point inspection performed. Which would include checking to see if the vehicle is or has been throwing an OBD2 'code'. I am not aware of any other method to check the CATs for malfunction.

I have an appointment for this recall on Wednesday May 11, 2016 and will ensure they check for any OBD2 codes before and after the recall repair.
