The recall replaces a simple plate that connects the battery to the car frame as an extra, extra, extra grounding point.
If I had known specifics ahead of time I would not have bothered.
Why would you ever disregard a free manufacturer recall for anything? Even if it was a defective dome light, I’d have it taken care of.

Ahah!! I was wondering why the grounding straps looked so rusty! :lol:

I just took over a 2014 S from my Dad in upstate NY, far from a dealer, so he had not taken it back for this recall notice. I've been playing in what I'm calling the Leaf pile, from removing most of the IP to get to and fix the PTC heater.

And I noticed the straps on the front corners of the battery are very rusty. Looks like galvanic action, or some alloy that really wants to rust.

Because I am not a wasteful person. If something is trivial or stupid, it remains so no matter who is footing the bill.

...possibly also because in NM it's less likely an issue than in the rust belt.

The car spent 3 years near the Pacific ocean. If the car had only lived in NM I would not have bothered.
