Since I was on the phone to the dealer I bought the car from, I asked if there are any outstanding recalls on my car. I was told that, indeed, there is one - didn't you get a letter - oh, it's very new.

Anyway tried to book it in and get them to collect it. "Sorry we don't collect for recalls". I explained about self-isolating for corona virus and clearly they haven't caught up with the implications yet.

So I got onto VW Customer Service who were very helpful and found a dealer who would collect the car and do the recall albeit in a month's time.

Now this recall apparently takes three hours so it must be simpler than what was being done in earlier threads. Or maybe they are now very slick at it?!?

Sounds like exactly the same recall as before to me? The check should only take that long, replacement if a fault found will take longer.

It’s only new to the dealer as they’re probably embarrassed they hadn’t done it before now and would hope they wouldn’t have to do it.

Could well be.

So that's a fortnight waiting for parts from Germany even if the factory wasn't shut?.

If I had one of the famous letters we could compare.

I had my 2018 GTE Advance in for service and Battery S-seal recall. Car collected and returned and all done in the day. This recall appears to be different to previous battery recall and seems to involve applying some sealant.
