Does Your Car Have A Recall Item?

Posted by & filed under Maintenance.

No matter how well they’re made, cars 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 automobile manufacturer to issue recall notices to Abilene residents and to fix the affected cars free of charge. The auto manufacturer then tries to contact all Abilene motorists who own that type of car so they can have it taken care of at their Abilene service center.

To find out if your car has any recall issues, give us a call:
Procter Automotive
1325 Butternut St. Abilene, TX 79602
325.672.9894

These recalls always affect safety, so Abilene auto owners 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.

Other website include: carfax.com; autobytel.com; and dmv.org. All of these sites have free recall searches.

Recalls are pretty serious for Abilene drivers and don’t happen all that often. But sometimes cars have less serious problems that Abilene car owners still might want to know about. For these less serious cases, auto makers issue what is known as a Technical Service Bulletin – or TSB. These bulletins tell Abilene service centers (including Procter Automotive)  how to repair a problem that occurs frequently or is especially difficult.

Your Abilene technician receives updated information through subscription plans, which are sometimes available in consumer versions too. Abilene car owners can buy access to these for an annual fee.

Whatever your source, pay attention to Abilene vehicle recalls to keep you and your passengers safe.
