Manufacturer Vehicle Recalls

From time to time a vehicle manufacturer will identify a common fault on a vehicle which they have manufactured & sold, If this common problem is identified as a safety related fault then the vehicle manufacturer concerned has a duty of care to contact all current vehicle owners of the affected model’s & immediately advise the owners to make an appointment at their local dealer to have the vehicle checked for the identified fault & rectify the problem free of charge via the manufacturer’s warranty programme.

Sometimes a current owner can’t be traced as they have sold the car to a car sales outlet & the original selling dealer has the incorrect records on file & the recall letter is sent to the wrong address, The manufacturer can access D.V.L.A records but again this can result in the car being sold in between the data base being built & the letters being sent out, also if the recall isn’t safety related the manufacturer will often just wait until a vehicle is presented with the know fault at a dealership & will then rectify the problem through the warranty programme.

Ringroad Rescue have found a web site for our customers to use to check if their vehicle has a known recall listed for their make & model check here.

Regular servicing will help reduce your motoring costs.

With the current economy continuing to cause ever increasing financial hardship on a large number of UK households anyway of reducing costs are greatly welcomed, current motoring costs are also increasing & as many vehicle owners rely on their vehicles to transport them on their daily commute too & from work, a fuel efficient vehicle is required.

It has long been acknowledged that regular servicing of motor vehicles will assist in the reduction of long term running cost’s & help increase fuel consumption by keeping the engine at optimum operating efficiency & performance.

Regular servicing is an important and essential part of maintaining your vehicle which will provide trouble free motoring. The vast majority of  vehicles require servicing annually regardless of age or mileage.

At Ringroad Rescue we will always recommend carrying out servicing to your vehicle to the manufacturers servicing schedule to preserve any remaining manufacturers warranty on the vehicle & to ensure the relevant items to be replaced are done so at the correct interval to maintain optimum performance of the parts.

If you are a high mileage driver, then you may need to visit Ringroad Rescue a little more often, as your filters will be working harder & may need replacing earlier than expected.
