Finding Vehicle Recall Information in Redmond
By: Luke Shaff ~
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 to issue a recall notice and fix the car free of charge. The manufacturer then tries to contact everyone who owns that type of car to get the recall work done.
These recalls always affect safety, so Redmond residents should take them seriously. It's easy for Bellevue folks to see if a vehicle's being recalled.
The US government has links on its websites, such as http://www.nhtsa.gov, and there are many websites with free recall information and searches. There's carfax.com; autobytel.com and dmv.org.
Recalls are serious, but not all that common. Sometimes there are less significant issues and for these, manufacturers issue a Technical Service Bulletin – or TSB – which tells Redmond auto service centers how to repair a frequent or difficult problem.
Then the automotive pros at Luke's Automotive in Redmond get updated information through subscription plans, which are also available in consumer versions for a reasonable cost.
So when vehicle recalls occur, get the work done at Luke's Automotive, and keep you and yours safe.
