Fix the used-car recall loophole

Auto News Editorial: The older a vehicle gets, and the more owners it passes through, the lower the recall repair rate tends to be, according to NHTSA.

Fixing the used vehicle recall loophole requires all the stakeholders in Congress and the auto industry to work together to go beyond one-off publicity campaigns, publicize recalls, identify the owners and get the vehicles fixed.

Frederick News Post: While car owners may get the same level of service at both chains and mom-and-pop shops, the relationships and trust that small businesses have built with customers are the main reason they haven’t been pushed out of the market.

More about the S.U.R.&R. PFT 409 Pistol-grip Flaring Tool Kit from Rick's Free Auto Repair Advice.com: Here are the things I like about the S.U.R.& R. flaring tool:
• Best and most consistent flares of all three types.
• Easiest to use
• Hydraulic ram=less wrist fatigue. If you’re replacing a lot of lines, this is a REALLY important feature.
• Punches just snap into place
• Ram releases quickly.

Here’s what I don’t like about the S.U.R.& R. flaring tool:
• Nothing. I love this tool.

"You get what you pay for" is a slogan easily summarizes the eternal debate over the best way for a dealership to pay its fixed ops employees, especially service technicians and advisers and parts-counter people.
