The first one came out in May 2006 and the recall began in October 2006. This report came out in December 2009 and the recall "was expected to begin in April 2010" Although I did see information related to the first recall, I had not seen anything about this second iteration and posted this just in case there were others who had not seen it. If it does not apply to your vehicle, you are perfectly welcome to ignore it.
