any body do the reacalls on your 5th gen

well i have been fighting a loosing battle with my lude on a hard start issue when i drive and let it sit for a while then go start it up again. i was doing some research on it and came across a post were someone had some recalls done on thier car. so i called my local dealer and to my surprise none of the recalls had been done on my lude so i made an appoinment to get them done.
the recalls are:

1. ignition switch

2. ball joints

3. emissions update (or something like that)

the questions are to whoever has had this done.
now exscuse me for sounding dumb but what all did they do to your ludes? what did the emissions recall consist of ? I have heard its like a tune up plus a new cat aswell but their were diffrent answers to that one. was their any cost involved? Did you notice a diffrence in the car afterwards?
thanks in advance guys.

I had the ignition switch recall because my car would shut off randomly when I was driving, one time on the freeway it just turned off. I've had the Recall and It hasnt happened again yet. It should be free. just call your Honda dealer. they fixed mine for free AND they washed my car for free. as far as the other recalls idk

what year is your car scarface....ive got a 98 that has the ignition problem where you can shut the car off and remove the key while it is in any gear (1,2,D,N,R) and it sucks!

Re: any body do the reacalls on your 5th gen

the ignition recall only apply on 97 to 99 model. I had my ignition switch replace last year February when my car doesn't turn off. my car has different problem from they stated on their recall but they still fix it for free.

Can I check if my car's complied with the recall online or do I have to call the dealership?

Re: any body do the reacalls on your 5th gen

I had the recall done on my ignition harness. If you have an alarm and the wires are too close they will do the work but your aftermarket alarm will be disconnected.'

Also had my seat belts replaced at the same time since they're under life time warranty.

Yes, but it depends on the recall. The balljoint recall gets you free balljoints, but only if you're on your originals. Same with the cat
