Got the call from my dealer and have the ball-joint recall scheduled for tomorrow. Supposed to take about 2 hours. So far they have done what they promised and during the latest conversation with them, I was asked if there was anything else I wanted to take a look at so things are looking promising.
No I did NOT ask them to re-look at my Start-Stop system which has reverted to pretty much non-functional again. Wife and I have decided that since it isn't needed for continued safe operation of the vehicle, we aren't going down that rabit-hole again. We'll drive this one into the ground (another 10-15 years) and when the car wears out we'll think about what kind of transportation to get. In the mean-time, not going to worry ourselves about something that is more irritating than needed.
