Auto Correct: Edmunds dot com
In addition to taking regular vehicle repair questions, we’ve got an expert from Edmunds.com on the show to answer questions about new cars.
Recalls for the week:
Recall affects the emergency jacks of model-year 2020-22 Encore GX and 2021-22 Trailblazer vehicles. The resolution is pretty clear cut: Dealers will replace the jack for free. Buick and Chevrolet manufacturer GM will begin notifying owners July 26, but those with further questions can call the Buick at 800-521-7300, Chevrolet at 800-630-2438
You can find out if your car has a past recall by going to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website: https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls and inputting your VIN number. Or find their SaferCar app.
In the news:
Auto Correct had a podcast drop this morning! Michelle, our show engineer, is the host and producer for Next Stop Mississippi heard on MPB think Radio Fridays at 10am. Michelle interviewed Southlife organizer Roddy Merritt last week on her show so I made a little 5 minute Auto Correct bonus podcast since Auto Correct will broadcast live from Southlife at Trustmark Park Saturday July 31st at 11am. We hope everyone comes to the free event and hangs around while we do the show inside the stadium.
