I also have a 2002. There has been 1 recall for brake lines (they install a $0.05 clip to keep a brake line from the small possibilty of rubbing against a steering component). I have heard there has been a recent recall for a gas-tank-valve-thingie, (if you flip the car upsidedown, more than the legal limit of gasoline may spill) but I have not received my notice as of yet. Either way, neither recall is serious

The rear brake noise is freaking annoying though.

The clips that were installed as part of the warrenty/recall work have nothing to do with noise coming from the rear brakes. If you have a noise it is a different issue.

no recalls worth even discussing. They are so minute in detail and importance you dont have to worry about it.
