I did find out one thing though. If my HPFP fails I'm outa luck since the extended warranty ran out 9K miles ago.
For anyone else wondering about the HPFP reference: http://www.motoringalliance.com/foru...extension.html

Another round of trying to find all the recalls to fill this thread so this isn't new but hey, it might be news to someone...

AUXILIARY WATER PUMP/POSSIBLE FIRE - various models manufactured late 2006 - early 2011

This only applies to S models.
