Received an update recall notice for the fix to fix the fix for spiders in the vent line. (you read that correctly) They are replacing the fuel tank, and cap and possible the canister set.

Here's the data:

If you have the installed vent hose filter from the first spider recall AND drive on non-paved or dusty roads AND the filter clogs with dust AND the dust causes negative pressure in fuel tank AND the negative pressure causes the fuel tank to leak AND the fuel tank leak comes in contact with ignition source that COULD cause a fire.

That's a lot of conditions to be met for a fire to result.

Who's in on this one?

I'm in on ignoring it.

That's a pretty big job to trust the dealer monkeys with when I never drive on an unpaved road.

Received mine also yesterday. 3-5 hours depending on AWD or not. So logically, AWD closer to 5 hours then. Ignoring it solely for first half of reason above.

I've never gone for any of the recalls. I went out of state to buy mine new. I'd have to make a 3 hour drive each way and trust monkeys in my car. The car is fine, thanks.

I got the notice too and like you all, intend to ignore the recall fix because it's really not necessary for most people given the conditions required for the worst case scenario. I also had the first fix done and have a filtered vent. The only problem is that this notice states explicitly that for California drivers, the California Air Resource Board may check to see if the recall was performed given it's related to the emissions systems. If the fix was not performed, they can automatically fail you on smog tests and prevent the car from being renewed in registration. I was already due for a smog test prior to this recall notice so I think I can get by for the next 2 years, but may be forced to do this eventually.
I really don't want my gas tank messed with.
