It would have been smart to let me know that the dealer had not received the replacement recall item in time for the scheduled appointment so we could have rescheduled. As I was to be there for the recall, I had some other non=urgent small items taken care of that I expected to wait for. The main purpose of the appointment could not be done and I had to wait for the other things to be completed. The appointment was made with with a knowledgable person who avised that the opart was not there yet and so we made the appointment ten days later, just in case. Nevertheless, it didn't arrive in time. A small recall item (dipstick) seems to me should have been easy to get in time, o matter where it was to come from. The first notice of the recall was in June (now September). Time to get the supply chain functioning better!
