    Yes. I know there was a recall to reprogram the remote control door lock receiver to make the TPMS compliant with FMVSS. I don't know the affected years but I know my 2008 has had this recall completed.

    Ah. I actually haven't even punched in my vin yet. Keep forgetting. Good to know it's not reliable.

    This site will only provide a list of outstanding recalls for the specified VIN. This is not intended to provide a history of completed recalls.

    And my 08 didn't get recalled for this issue. So overall it's important to know if you're looking for recall info that it's not always the right idea to assume that simply because there was a recall for a certain year that it would affect all production cars that year.

    Yes, many recalls will affect vehicles at a specific VIN breakpoint so you are absolutely correct that an entire model year may not be affected. There can be other factors such as a change in supplier of a given part. It's really down to specific VIN's nowadays.
