I'd suspect "incompetent" if the service manager checked for the 
recall and failed to find it. But if he didn't even bother to check, 
then that qualifies as a "blow-off"; although I agree it's hard to 
understand that attitude. Sometimes, seeing a 14 yr-old car come in 
for service (or parts) can generate strange reactions at certain 
dealerships, although my experience with the Bose recall was quite 
positive (this at a dealer who classifies our alternator belt to be a 
special-order item).
