Question about TSB's....

Does anyone know if a dealer will honor a TSB if I'm the second owner of the car and it's out of warranty? I'm just wondering because I did some research and found that there are a bunch of TSB's out there that would seem to perfectly describe some minor issues I have with my '00 XJ.

I'm wondering if I can go have them done, or if I'll need to pay? Does anyone have experience with this, or maybe work at a dealership and know the answer?

Thanks!

I'm the 4th or 5th owner of mine, I just got the free cat from a TSB...

you should be fine if you take it to them and specify that you only want recall/no-charge work done

The free cat was a recall.

A TSB is a Technical Service Bulletin. They're simply a list of common problems put out by the manufacturer to help technicians diagnose and repair problems. That's all they are. Pick any car, any make or model, and you'll find a mile-long list of TSB's.

TSB's are not recalls, and no one will fix them for free.

I thought I read on here somewhere of a few people that had, for example, the infamous TC linkage rattle and the hot-start-rough-idle issue repaired by dealers at no charge because they were TSB's.

Not that I'm questioning what you're saying, I'm just wondering if maybe someone that works at a dealer is here and can give a definitive answer.

TSB's are not recalls. If you had a good relationship with a dealer they might fix items in a TSB but they wouldnt be obligated to unless it was under a bumper to bumper waranty. Even under a warranty you sometimes have to twist their arms.
