Spoke with my dealer yesterday and looks like cat is suppose to recall the 01 pistons. Not for reliability but for performance issues. Turns out that the 01 lost some compression when they were warm. Also they found small cracks in the skirts. On the 02 they were beefed up and performed well. So free pistons for everybody, at least at the good dealers.

I've heard on other forums of some receiving letters from AC advising of the recall but for those not receiving a letter for what ever reason a quick call to your dealer will confirm they will be replaced at N/C.
The recall is based on piston/skirt failures and not performance issues unless of course the piston has already partially/totally failed.
Its nice to see AC stepping up and doing the right thing, certainly it would have been nice to see a recall sooner but better late then never.
Rick. :D
