Car Secrets

According to the manufacturer of your car, there are many problems with your car, but the manufacturer will never make most this information available to you (other than recalls).
If you’d like to know what’s wrong with your car, according to the manufacturer, please follow these steps to obtain a list of the recalls, campaigns, and technical service bulletins for your car (the list is free).
The manufacturer provided these documents to the dealerships to diagnose and repair cars more quickly than if they didn’t have this info (in a database). Normally, you wouldn’t have access to this type of information (other than recalls), but thanks to, you do now
1) Automotive Recalls and Technical Service Bulletins, Year Selection. Provided by ALLDATA
2) Select the year of your vehicle, e.g. 2009
3) Select the manufacturer, e.g. Honda
4) Select the model, e.g. Accord
5) Select the Engine type

Three things will be listed

1) Recalls
2) Campaigns
3) Technical Service Bulletins (TSB)

Each entry in the index represents a document will have obtain access to if you purchase a subscription from ( does not mail you anything; the documents will be available on their web site in a PDF format)

To purchase a subscription, select Click Here to Access full recalls and Technical Service Bulletins (above the list of the bulletins)

It is not uncommon to find a statement in the bulletin, indicating that, if the customer has the problem described in the bulletin, the dealership is authorized to repair the car for FREE (and bill the manufacturer)

If you find a bulletin of interest to you, call the service manager at your local dealership and ask if the dealership will repair the car for free (you might even consider mailing the bulletin to the Service Manager at the dealership so we can resolve the issue over the phone before you take the car to the dealership)
