Get it done. At some point, all the original spec alternators will fail.elliotgb said:Just got my recall yesterday as well. I need to assess whether to have it done or not since I never have had any alternator problems. I just wonder if the replacement might end up causing problems at some point.
The Treg was heavy (5300 lbs) so it got lousy milage and most of all I lost confidence in it. Many electical gremlins and drivetrain issues VW was in denial but were/are buying lots of them back. Not a vehicle you would want to own out of warranty. I only put 8900 miles on it but retreated back to Nissan build quality.Kris said:
