No matter how well they’re made, vehicles will have design or manufacturing problems. And when the government thinks a problem is really serious, they require the manufacturer of the vehicle to issue a recall notice and to repair the vehicle at no charge to the owner. The manufacturer has to try to contact everyone who owns that type of vehicle so they can get the recall work done.
These recalls always affect the safety of the drivers, so Denver residents should always take them seriously. It’s not a difficult process to see if a vehicle has a recall.
The US government has links on its websites, such as http://www.nhtsa.gov
There are many websites with free recall information and searches. To name a few: carfax.com, autobytel.com and dmv.org.
Recalls are serious, but not all that common. Sometimes there are less significant issues….when these occur a Technical Service Bulletin , or TSB, is issued. This tells Denver auto service centers how to repair a frequent or difficult problem.
The automotive pros at Express Car Care in Denver get updated information through subscription plans, which can also be available in consumer versions for a reasonable cost.
So if you find yourself with a vehicle recall, get the work done at Express Car Care and keep you and yours safe.
