From some other literature I saw, it was indicated that the cutoff date for affected vehicles was week 2 in July ??

I'd like to hear what people have for build dates on their vehicles (door sticker). Mine is 06/21

05/21 here.
I talked to a service advisor at my dealership today about the fuel line. They have checked a few in the last week, and none failed. They have not been allocated any parts (replacement fuel lines) - if it fails they have to order one by VIN number and give you a loaner.

Taking it in Oct 11th to get that Engine light diagnosed (code P2421) so we'll see what transpires.

My 2022 Taos has a manufacture date of 5/21. Still at the dealer since 8 September awaiting replacement fuel line parts.

Is the cutoff date of July, for the assumed affected vehicles built prior to July or after?

Well, mine passed. The service writer said that they currently have 8 sitting in the service lot, waiting for replacement parts

With the slow distribution of parts, I'm hoping they will have the replacement parts for the fuel line repair soon.It's nice the dealer provided a loaner, but I want my Taos back.

I live in Northeast Ohio. Had my scheduled appointment for this Saturday (I made the appointment over 2 weeks ago and for a Saturday because of my work schedule) and just got a call from my dealer telling me that they are not able to do the fuel line test on a Saturday because it’s more involved than they originally thought and if there is an issue they will need to keep my car. I asked if they would be willing to give me a loaner and they said no. So now my appointment isn’t until mid October (when I am on vacation). Let’s hope I don’t have any issues in the meantime. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Finally had my appointment today for the fuel line. I was told everything checked out ok. I hope others have the same good results.

What was the manufacture date of your Taos? I was told the fuel line leak were Taos's manufactured prior to July 21. My mfg. date was May 21 and the fuel was leaking. It's been at the dealer since 8 September.

As I understand it, a manufacturing date prior to July means it must be checked. The issue was corrected in the factory after July. They expected around 1.5% of the pre-July fuel lines to fail the test and need replaced according to the NHTSA documents.

My 5/21 build was tested today (as well as the ECU update) and it passed.
