Default Two recall notices - RDM & suspension, then suspension - Anyone else?

Originally got a combination RDM/suspension recall then a month later just a suspension recall. Made appointment for both. Called today to confirm and to not do the RDM(thanks to info from this board), and service stated that only the suspension recall was needed for my 04. It was built in August - were the "new" RDMs put on then or retrofitted prior to my purchase in September? Why did I get the recall then???

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2004 VUE 3.5L

The recall was probably just sent out to all 2002, 2003, and 2004 AWD vues to make it easier. If yours was built in August you probably already had the new RDM. Apparently so.

I second that. If I recall correctly, it was in August (I forget the exact date) when they started using the "new and improved" RDM design. If yours isn't moaning and groaning, DON'T LET THEM TOUCH IT! If they are already telling you that you don't need it, then I wouldn't worry about it.

As a side note, my Vue was built way before August (I took delivery over a year ago), and I at one time received the letter about both recalls, but recently I have only received a letter about the Rear Lateral Link recall. It seems that with all the noise being created over the decrease in performance, they have ceased the RDM recall.

I've got a 2003 AWD V6. I did not receive a recall notice for the RDM.
The retailer offered to do the suspension link recall when I last had the VUE in for service, but they haven't mentioned the RDM. I'm sorta hoping to keep the one that works, so no argument.
