Coolant system. not rolling system (stupid autocorrect)

When I picked up my car yesterday my dealer said that Alfa had issued a new Rapid Response Transmittal.

The number is 17-068 and has to do with replacing an o-ring in the coolant system that may leak.
He said it came out last Friday (July 28th) and they just heard about it when they prepped my car Monday morning.

So be on the look out for this. It's a RRT not an TSB which means they have to fix it even if you are not experiencing any issues.

Also FYI my dealer did several updates on the car before I picked it up.
These include the following RRTs:
17-043
17-052
17-057
17-058
17-060

So if your dealer says they can't do this before delivery they are full of Sh(it)

Does it list each flash update with a description of the service?

Is the dealer supposed to contact the owner to complete an RRT? I haven't had Ti in for service yet, hasn't needed anything, but that's a big list of fixes!

Hi SoopirV,

Dealerships are not required to contact customers for RRTs; however, they do generally notify you of any that came out during your next service appointment. If you would like to check if there are any RRTs on your vehicle feel free to PM our page with your VIN and let me know!

Just had my Giulia Ti in for updates. The following were completed.

RRT 17-037
RRT 17-043
RRT 17-060
RRT 17-065
RRT 17-068

They also replaced my glove box door, even though I've had no issues with it...they said it was a new RRT and since my car was coming in for an appointment they went ahead and ordered the parts to do it.

What I did not get was the infotainment update. Although, I also did not ask for it. I assumed it would be done with the other updates. then after re-reading some posts on this forum, I realized I needed to tell them I was having issues with the system (which I actually am not) to get th eupdate. Next time, I guess!

BTW: My car is a Nov 2016 build. I got it in Feb '17.

There is an Amplifier software update among several others including an entertainment/information cluster update. The AlfaCares folks called me yesterday to schedule an appt but I stopped by my dealer today anyway to look at a Stelvio for a possible Winter vehicle. The service advisor said they could take it in right on the spot to do the software updates today and tomorrow. I gave them the car despite not experiencing any issues at all, while driving more than 900 miles over the prior 3 days. Got to tell you, 6,500 miles in at this point and it is absolutely incredible. My love for it grows with every mile driven.
