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 auto manufacturer to issue recall notices to residents and to fix the affected cars free of charge. The vehicle manufacturer then tries to contact all drivers who own that type of car so they can have it taken care of at their Ankeny service center.

These recalls always affect safety, so Ankeny motorists 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 Des Moines motorists and don’t happen all that often. But sometimes cars have less serious problems that Ankeny car owners still might want to know about. For these less serious cases, vehicle manufacturers issue what is known as a Technical Service Bulletin – or TSB. These bulletins tell Des Moines service centers (including All Pro Servicenter) how to repair a problem that occurs frequently or is especially difficult.
Your service advisor receives updated information through subscription plans, which are sometimes available in consumer versions too. Des Moines car owners can buy access to these for an annual fee.
Whatever your source, pay attention to vehicle recalls to keep you and your passengers safe.
