Technical Service Bulletins ?

how do you go about getting a TSB taken care of? is it somthing the dealer has to fix or is it more like a suggestion for them to repair.

Do you have a particular TSB in mind? Just show up to the dealership with a copy of the TSB in hand.

There is a lot for any vechile. Nothing you need to repair unless the discibed problem becomes an issue.

Lucky for you, you have to pay. Just beucase it is a TSB does not mean you WILL have that problem... just a higher probability of it.

A TSB is a repair procedure given by the manufacturer to the dealer repair shops to help them diagnose and repair common/difficult problems. There is NO obligation for the manufacturer or dealer to do the repairs free. They are an addition to the factory shop manual repair and diagnosis procedures.
If a TSB covers a problem you are having while your vehicle is under warranty it would be free.

just like georged said, a tsb is not a recall. tsb's are issued by any company to aid techs in diagnosis of fairly common problems. a common problem does not mean a recall is necessary. tsb's are more of a suggestion of somthing to check and if the symptoms are right a possable fix. tsb's can be restricted to certain vin ranges, build dates and many of the options codes.
