Good luck with that. Not being able to opt out is why I don't have my Outlook anymore. Dealer would not listen to me when I didn't want the sunroof drain hose recall done (had been done before the recall and no leaks, they did it anyway, did it wrong, leaked even worse, ruined headliner, etc...). If it can be dangerous to others (car catching fire while going down road causing you to potentially wreck, hit someone else, etc...) it must be done.

Now, if we can just get a recall on some if not most drivers I would feel even safer.

It's not worth the risk. IMO

Re: GM recall-Lambda's with heated washer systems

Received some new info from a reliable source

A T labor code for customers who refuse to have the recall performed. This labor code will NOT close the recall. If a customer refuses to have the recall performed, dealers are to provide the customer with a copy of the "Notice to Customer" document contained in this bulletin, record on the repair order "customer declined recall repair" and, if possible, have the customer sign the repair order. Request that the letter be placed in the vehicle glovebox for future reference by subsequent owners. If at a later date the customer, or a new owner, decides to have the recall performed, perform the repair and submit the claim using the appropriate V labor code.
