Does Your Car Have A Recall Item?January 21, 2014

No matter how well they’re made, cars are bound to have problems with their design or manufacturing. Think of all the moving parts. When the government thinks a problem is really serious, they require the vehicle manufacturer to issue recall notices to Rowlett residents and to fix the affected cars free of charge. The auto manufacturer then tries to contact all Rowlett drivers who own that type of car so they can have it taken care of at their Rowlett service center.

These recalls always affect safety, so Rowlett motorists would be wise to take them seriously. It’s really easy to find out if a vehicle is being recalled. For links to government sites, look in the AutoNetTV website.

Recalls are pretty serious and don’t happen all that often. But sometimes cars have less serious problems that Rowlett motorists still might want to know about. For these less serious cases, car makers issue what is known as a Technical Service Bulletin – or TSB. These bulletins tell Rowlett service centers how to repair a problem that occurs frequently or is especially difficult.
