I am aware (now) of the notification. Is your point that for all products and services we purchase, we should scour the manufacturer or service provider's website for updates that may or may not be relevant to the products or services we purchase? I received a direct-to-customer communication (which I think was highly appropriate for the situation), but it wasn't until a week ago.
No, not suggesting that you have to "scour" any particular manufacturers web site. Just pointing out that the info has been very well publicized in general, including by Tesla. I did get a reminder from them, and had the update done back in November 2021, when I did the eMMC recall.
I also agree with @EVRider-FL that an EMail back in July 2021 would have been appropriate.
Sorry you only got a reminder so last minute, but I don't think that was typical.
