Had this issue for the past month and my car is in the shop now getting fixed.

They gave me a 2016 Audi A8L as a rent a car. Freaking thing is $91,000!!! Sweeet!!!

Why does it take a month to change a switch and why is your car out of service How many Kia technicians does it take rto change a light bulb ?

One of the happiest moments of my life was when I bought an Audi A6 , it spent more time in the shop then I care to remember .I finally got so PO'd at it and was tired of fighting with Audi I traded it on a Lincoln MKZ AWD and almost had zero incidents .Owned that car for 5 years . That became the second happiest day in my life

My car is fine, no problems with this, but they will change it anyway.
I'd think they have to have time to get enough switches on hand before
they start the recall. Some dealers have a few switches now.
Doesn't mean anything is going to go wrong with your switch, they are
just trying to be safe.

It doesn't, I was saying I've had the issue for about a month now but didn't know why it was happening and didn't have the time to take it in for service. Now that I dropped it off last week and they ordered the part, the car is ready t be picked up today!

Default Recall in Canada

My dealer called me yesterday for the recall told me it had to do with starter switch although I am not too sure the gal who called me was totally up on the recall notice since they have only sold about 5 K900's
