Letter about taking Jeep in for inspection

Did anyone by change get a letter from Mopar about taking your jeep patriot or compass in about a issue that the steering wheel shakes ? It mentioned being able to take your Jeep in to be inspected and charges would be covered if it needed to be replaced ?
I wanted to have it looked into but my wife through away the letter.

I'm going to take a stab and guess that it is the letter that appears on the second page of this thread: Getting crossmembers replaced under warranty.

Didn't get that letter but last November i got a Safety Recall from the FCA US LLC regarding:

"loss of air bag and seat belt pretensioner deployment capability during a crash...."
"Wait for FCA US to contact you again by mail with a followup recall notice when remedy parts are available."

It goes on to say, there's no current solution.
Affects various Chrysler vehicles including 2010 to 2014 Compasses and Patriots.

Haven't heard anything since.

I received that same recall notice last oct. Nothing yet! My dealer told me they are not sure when they will get the parts to fix the problem.

Got that letter on Wifey's 2014 Patriot. Seems they are still working on solving the problem. After that they will have to manufacture whatever parts are needed to remedy the problem. I wonder how long the government gives them?
