Default Scion tC moonroof wind Deflector recall

Did you guys get a recall notice? I got one today. It says that if the glass wind deflector gets hit with a "projectile" at highway speeds it may shatter. The fix is they are going to put a laminate over the wind deflector to fix the possible problem. It also says the dealership will need the car for an hour to do this! I know you guys got the recall notice too. Has this happened to anybody?

I got mine a few weeks ago also. Not going to take it in. The deflector is tempered safety glass, and the fix is a lamenant over the deflector to prevent glass from falling into the cabin. So the end result is. Do you want a broken deflector thats easy to clean up? Either way the deflector gets broken so Personally i don't think its worth an hour of my time.
