Does Your Car Have A Recall Item?

February 25, 2016

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 Loves Park residents and to fix the affected vehicles free of charge. The they try to contact all Loves Park residents who own that type of car so they can have it taken care of at their Loves Park service center.

To find out if your car has any recall issues, give us a call:

Tuffy Rockford
6574 E. Riverside
Loves Park, Illinois 61111
815.639.1239

These recalls always affect safety, so Loves Park 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.


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

Recalls are pretty serious for Loves Park residents and don't happen all that often. But sometimes cars have less serious problems that Loves Park 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 Loves Park service centers (including Tuffy Rockford) how to repair a problem that occurs frequently or is especially difficult.

Your Loves Park service center receives updated information through subscription plans, which are sometimes available in consumer versions too.

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