I actually received a recall notice also; not sure if it was for this. Regardless I have an appointment next week to receive the software patch to fix the issue.

Is this the same as "software update" for engine surge issue? If so, I had mine done almost a year ago (BTW, still having the same issue even after they claimed software updated).

This one listed 11/15/06. hmmm? I'm hoping this is new so I can take it in again.
