Updated observation on my D which is now out of warranty and will be due for the first out-of-warranty service in 2,000 miles (3,000+ KM).
Whilst my FE is not affected by the emission recall, my DEF consumption has increased as today I got the low DEF warning even though the oil change is not due for another 2,000 miles.
I went to a Canadian Tire store and picked up a 5 US Gal bottle of DEF for CAD$19.99 and will be feeding my D tomorrow morning.
I will call my Dealer for an oil change appointment. I shall ask how much it'll cost without filling the DEF since I can do that myself.
