I don't drive much so it only has under 6,000 miles. I do my annual oil change at a very close friend's shop (non Porsche only shop).
The warranty will be up in April 2019. Should I go to the dealer for the last check for any update/recall?

I contacted a local dealer via their web form but no one contact me back.

It would help if ya had done some work there. Call and talk to service manager and tell him that youd like the car checked because its going out of warranty. They get money for issues when they repair them from Porsche. Good Luck!

Thanks all.
I assume if there is any recall I would be notified. Since my car is fine and I do yearly oil change at my buddy's shop then I don't need to go in to pay for a $499 oil change.

Don't think if there is a recall you will get notified. Not the case in most instances. You either have to check for campaigns or the dealer should know if any recent ones. Always good to have a look at the car before going out of warranty.

Look here to see if there is a recall on your vehicle:

https://recall.porsche.com/prod/pag/...f/VIN?ReadForm

As far as bringing it in to check car before warranty runs out, it doesn't hurt and I am sure they will find something to charge you for. But, if there is a problem you don't have to have them fix it - take it to your indy.

So strange, my VIN isn't in the system.

If it is recall, you will get notified, assuming PCNA has your address. For service campaigns, you are correct, you wont be.

What is a "non Porsche only" shop?
