Up-to-Date Technical Service Bulletins: Just One More Reason to Take Your Car to the Dealer for Service

Last updated 6 years ago

There are a variety of reasons to visit the dealership when your car needs service, ranging from saving you time and money to getting the highest-quality service. Another excellent reason to visit the dealership for maintenance is its service bulletins, notifications that contain valuable service-related information sent from a manufacturer to licensed dealerships. Here is a closer look at service bulletins and how these helpful updates can benefit you:

What Are Technical Service Bulletins?

A service bulletin is a notice generally involves a particular maintenance task or repair. These bulletins can be as simple as a suggestion to use a different type of bolt which lasts longer than another combination, and as complicated as engine and transmission repair updates which deal with the intricacies of gear ratios and piston dynamics. Updates like these happen constantly, so having your car serviced at the dealership will keep it up-to-date.

How Can They Benefit Me?

Service bulletins are beneficial in a variety of ways, most notably in saving car owners money. Because your vehicle will be equipped with the proper hardware, it will malfunction less often when serviced at the dealership, reducing the amount of costly repair bills that you will incur during your car’s life. Another benefit of service bulletins is improved performance due to optimized parts and calibrations, and the resulting increased vehicle longevity.

Why Should I Visit the Dealership?

An independent mechanic not affiliated with a dealership will not have access to service bulletins, and as a result, may not be aware of the more intimate workings of your vehicle. When you choose a mechanic, you should visit the technician with the most knowledge—service bulletins make dealership specialists the best option for your vehicle’s maintenance.
