Have you received your recall letter?

Has anyone on Canada and or Alberta received their key recall letter? I have yet to receive mine...

Nope, haven't gotten mine. And just like Merc said....GM ain't getting my fobs. LOL

However, there seems to be a guy on here who posted about having an accident with hitting the key with his knee and the car shutting off. Now this is the first I heard of this incident actually happening, but here is the link:

I was surprised to see that as well. That's what prompted the question honestly. I like the FOB and my knee, like most people, is a mile away from the key. But, I don't think I'm THAT tied to the fob

I have been able to bump the key off with my knee if my seat all the way forward with the steering wheel all the way down. Now if I was actually driving like that and got into an accident, I'm pretty sure the airbag would kill me, which bumping the key might work in your advantage heh.

If you want to get it replaced you don't need to wait for the letter.

I havn't yet, but keep in mind people, if an accident happens God forbid, the insurance will be more than happy to blame it on you for not going in for the recall to try and get out of paying for your damage. I'm still waiting on my letter, but I will keep a fob probably anyway too.

Thats exactly what I said on FB...If you sign the letter stating you do not want the new key...well the insurance will probably not cover you.
It`s a SAFETY issue
I too haven`t gotten the letter yet...

You get to keep your fobs, they just remove the key and give you a separate one

Has the brooks dealership sent out any letters yet, assuming its the dealership, and not GM that does this?

GM sends out the letters not the Dealership. If any vehicle is in for a service appointment we let them know any open recalls they have

If you ever want to sell your car you will have to get it done.

Same here, I took my car in for warranty work and they told me I don't have to have it done if I am willing to sign the waiver.

I broke down and got the key. I picked it up on Friday and really thought it would bug me but it actually doesn't matter to me, I liked the switchblade key but the new key is ok. Just my opinion. Let me know if you want to see a pic I will take one and post it.

Sure, could you post a pic or two? I'm thinking of waiting it out to see if they come up with a better looking key than what I've seen posted here.
