No matter how well they're made, vehicles 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 San Diego residents and to fix the affected vehicles free of charge. The they try to contact all San Diego residents who own that type of car so they can have it taken care of at their San Diego service center.

Recalls are pretty serious for San Diego residents and don't happen all that often. But sometimes cars have less serious problems that San Diego residents still might want to know about. For these less serious cases, the vehicle manufacturer issues what is known as a Technical Service Bulletin – or TSB. These bulletins tell San Diego service centers (including Pacific Highway Auto Repair) how to repair a problem that occurs frequently or is especially difficult.
Your San Diego service center receives updated information through subscription plans, which are sometimes available in consumer versions too.
