It is only at this point (and it would be pointless to write before then) will they simultaneously contact owners and dealers.

It is important to remember when your car is subject to a recall, that your car is no less safe/reliable than it was before you were notified, unless it displays symptoms pertinent to the recall. As such, book it in at your earliest convenience, but don't panic.

Frustrating though, I know.

No disrespect Paul but possible seat belts could become detached from the rear seat belt stalks is a major safety issue, an 8 hour repair, adhesive to harden prior to use . 5star crash rating means nothing if your belt does not hold you .
