Does Your Car Have A Recall Item?
Posted in Maintenance on November 24, 2019
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 Tampa residents and to fix the affected vehicles free of charge. The they try to contact all Tampa residents who own that type of car so they can have it taken care of at their Tampa service center.
To find out if your car has any recall issues, give us a call:

These recalls always affect safety, so Tampa residents 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 for Tampa residents and don't happen all that often. But sometimes cars have less serious problems that Tampa 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 Tampa service centers (including Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Tampa (Gunn Hwy)) how to repair a problem that occurs frequently or is especially difficult.
Your Tampa service center receives updated information through subscription plans, which are sometimes available in consumer versions too.
