Yes, the 2017 was part of the recall. But if your VIN doesn't come up showing the recall is active, that means the battery has already been replaced. Did you just purchase the car used? If you're the original owner, and you know it hasn't been replaced, the VIN check probably made an error.
This makes sense. I think it made an error because I'm leasing and it definitely has not been replaced. I called a local dealer and he's checking to see if i'm on his wait list (i called them ages ago), hoping I am.
I'll also try to read through and learn about how best to get a new lease (mine is up in July), my dealer gave me a hard time earlier today because I didn't have a new battery. It seemed as if he was preparing for me to be in a bad situation at lease time. That did not feel good!
Thanks very much again.

I believe that all 2017 models should now be eligible, so I'd certainly be asking.

Just picked my car up this morning with the new battery. Of course, the battery wasn't charged, but I wasn't going to leave it for another day to fill it up. I did check the setting and it will now allow a 100% charge, so it does appear they flashed the new firmware. I have a bit over three hours remaining to see if if fully charges, but I'm confident it will, based on what the setting shows.
