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

Recalls are pretty serious and don’t happen all that often. But sometimes cars have less serious problems that Sarasota drivers 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 Sarasota service centers how to repair a problem that occurs frequently or is especially difficult.
