I got the child protector door lock stuff in the mail. Its stickers that go over the stamped pictograms on the rear door child locks.

Guess they stamped them backwards...

Thanks for update.

I have not heard of anything on the topic. Will be awhile before next oil Change (service) and had thought (oil change) to do it myself VS $50 plus at Dealer.

First service was FREE, but I was too dumb to negotiate a year FREE. GROAN

Had my car in for its first oil change today, I brought this us, they checked my VIN and those 2 issues showed up. Dealer here in Ottawa does not yet have the tool to test this. The notice came out mid-October, and apparently will set off a warning light. Test takes 1 hr, the motor replacement takes 5+ hours (not the EV motor, looks like a cooling pump that feeds into the motor). All covered under warranty of course but hopefully they have the test tool in next time (apparently the tool to test his is a bit pricey)

I saw on the invoice that the parts were 99 cents.
The cost of the sticker!

Don't worry though, I wasn't charged! Covered under warranty! Wooot!

It is the labor that they get you on minimum 1/2 hour I think is standard. So like $50 to put a sticker on the door.

I'm sure they get reimbursed from the factory.

Actually, the very first time we (wife and I) noticed something (shake, studder, wherever you call it) was on a flat straight smooth Hwy. Hwy 66 probably doing about 50MPH as that is typical on that road which is a 3 lane each side out of Sevierville (we were going north).

Has anyone heard any ore details regarding the pressure pressure test of the cooling system for electric motors? When I took my Niro in for oil change late November, I asked about it, at that time my dealer here in Ottawa did not have the tool for testing this. Has anyone heard any updates on this issue?

Has anyone in the US heard about the engine pressure service action? Do we know if it’s just Canada for some reason...?

I’ll answer my own question! When I called to make me first oil change with the dealer (free first & third oil change) I started to ask about it and he said he did see two “recalls” for my vehicle. One was the child sticker thing and the other was a “hybrid motor check” which must have been it.

So it does apply to the US too.
