It says that if the repair is not done the vehicle might fail an emission test. And in California it is mandatory.

They'll replace parts - if required. The repair will take one day.
Ditto, got recall notice today.

I'm due for my 3rd Oil Service so will schedule it all at once. Doesn't sound like a major deal to me. Says they need one day to do the work. I'll give them all the time they want with a loaner!
