What a company!
Dec. 2018 High pressure fuel hose may leak
Feb. 2020 Low pressure fuel hose may crack and leak
Feb. 2022 Low pressure fuel hose may leak

Add in the HECU short circuit Aug. 2020 & May 2021 with a risk of fire, then add in the engine seizure possibility and you're riding around in a ticking bomb.
Think they'll ever get it sorted out, no just more recalls as the time goes by.

Is this recall ever going to be ready for servicing? It's been well over 2 months now. The first time I got this recall done they put a little piece of tape around a fuel hose and I said to myself "self what is that piece of tape really going to do to prevent fuel from leaking out of a hose".
