I was informed by my dealership's service department today that the HCA recall can't be done for at least 6 months due to parts being backordered, and that their one Kia certified tech is booked out for at least 4 months so I have to wait on the software updates until the recall parts become available. Estimated date for the HCA recall and (currently) 3 software updates is *POSSIBLY* in March 2019, if I am very lucky and my HCA springs a leak. Probably fall '19 if it doesn't.
Anyone know if the software updates can be user-installed, or does a Kia tech have to perform them? I'd like to get them done before I sell the car, if possible, and I'll do them myself if I can.
