The Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA) recently announced
that after adding 2,459 new bulletins, the association has now surpassed
108,233 technical bulletins on www.AutoBulletins.com, a website designed specifically for professional technicians diagnosing vehicle problems.
“Using AutoBulletins.com gives the automotive and light-duty technician
the ability to look-up Original Equipment Service (OEM) bulletins for
almost any car or light truck they may encounter in their shop,” said
APRA Chief Technical Officer Mark Kothe.
online is like having a technical library at your fingertips, APRA
says. By storing all of the data “in house,” APRA has been able to
provide much faster access for subscribers to this online service.
The OEM technical bulletins are updated monthly, with an additional
400-500 new bulletins being added each month. Currently, the website is
home to nearly 110,000 separate technical service bulletins with
coverage through the 2012 model years. The website is sponsored by APRA
member Dixie Electric Ltd. of Concord, Ontario, Canada.
This newly released version of AutoBulletins.com
offers a streamlined software design, which allows access to the
bulletins by simply selecting year, make, model and system easy
dropdown boxes and no “submit” button to click.
Kothe added, “AutoBulletins.com has always been a great product. In
today’s fast-paced world, having a major speed improvement was one of
our top priorities. With new data being delivered to make it even
better, we lowered the price to $100 per year. This equates to 1/10 of a
cent per technical bulletin. This sounds like a great deal to me.”
APRA is offering a free, full system test drive for 30-days for all APRA
members. Purchase price is $100 per year, or $10 per month.
APRA President, Bill Gager, concluded, “After your 30-day free trial,
you’ll quickly realize that this is a service you can’t live without.”
