No matter how well they’re made, vehicles in Boulder, CO will have design or manufacturing problems.
And when the government thinks a problem is really serious for people in Boulder, CO, they require the vehicle manufacturer to issue a recall notice and fix the car free of charge. The vehicle manufacturer then tries to contact everyone in Boulder, CO who owns that type of car to get the recall work done. Perhaps you have received a postcard notifying you of a recall issue on your car. Because these recalls always affect safety, Boulder car owners should take them seriously. This isn’t difficult to do because it’s easy to see if a vehicle’s being recalled.

Recalls are serious, but not all that common. But sometimes there are less essential issues, and for these, vehicle manufacturers issue a Technical Service Bulletin, or TSB, that tells service centers like John’s Auto Care how to repair a frequent or difficult problem.
