Recalls

Certified Mechanics June 13, 2013
 

No matter how well they’re made, cars are bound to have problems with their design or manufacturing. When the government thinks a problem is really serious, they require the manufacturer to issue a recall notice to Chicago residents and to fix the car free of charge. The manufacturer then tries to contact everyone who owns that type of car in Chicago and elsewhere until the work is done.
If you have questions about vehicle recalls, give us a call:
Triangle Auto Service
4060 N. Elston Chicago, Illinois 60618
773-539-5858
These recalls always affect safety, so you need to take them seriously. It’s really easy to find out if a vehicle is being recalled. For links to government sites, look in website.
Other website include: carfax.com; autobytel.com; and dmv.org. All of these sites have free recall searches.
Recalls are pretty serious and don’t happen all that often. But sometimes cars have less serious problems that you still might want to know about. In this case, manufacturers issue what is known as a Technical Service Bulletin – or TSB. These bulletins tell service centers how to repair a problem that occurs frequently or is especially difficult.
The pros receive updated information through subscription plans, which are sometimes available in consumer versions too. You can buy access to these for an annual fee.
Whatever your source, pay attention to vehicle recalls to keep you and your passengers safe.  Triangle auto service, 773-539-5858.  www.triangleradiator.com, www.triangleradiator.net, www.chicagobrakerepair.com
