: Tie Rod Washer Recall

I just spoke with my Cadillac service Dept. They said the tie rod recall depends on which plant they came from and claimed that mine was not involved/

Sound feasible?

I assume they are talking about the plant that the washers came from, not the assembly plant, since there is only one.

The recall was for the dealer to install a new nut and washer on the lower control arms, and if required, replace the ball stud and/or steering knuckles.
My dealer only replaced the nuts "4 ea.".
So I would say the least they should do is replace the nuts.
