    I just received my US-version of this recall notice (NHTSA 18V-754), dated Dec 20, 2018.

    I called my local dealer and scheduled a time for the initial inspection. The dealer admitted that I would be the Test Case (the first), and that they would need the car for 3 or 4 hours, as they were not certain what to do or how to do it (yet). The dealer stated that, depending upon what is discovered, I may have to bring the car back to install new parts.

    All this is fine with me, as my GT is not my primary car.

    Will post a followup in two weeks after inspection / repairs are completed.

    Happy New Year
