Does Your Car Have A Recall Item?
Posted in Maintenance on January 31, 2018
No matter how well they're made, vehicles 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 Columbus residents and to fix the affected vehicles free of charge. The they try to contact all Columbus residents who own that type of car so they can have it taken care of at their Columbus service center.

Recalls are pretty serious for Columbus residents and don't happen all that often. But sometimes cars have less serious problems that Columbus residents still might want to know about. For these less serious cases, the vehicle manufacturer issues what is known as a Technical Service Bulletin – or TSB. These bulletins tell Columbus service centers (including Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Grandview) how to repair a problem that occurs frequently or is especially difficult.
Your Columbus service center receives updated information through subscription plans, which are sometimes available in consumer versions too.
