One other thing and I'll shut up, there may be some confusion about TSB's. These are Technical Service Bulletins, not recalls or extended warranty. They are only there to help techs diagnose and repair problems.
No arguement on this point, but would it be possible to get a good description of a "Campaign", what it is, how to get it done, and how to learn about them in the first place?
As a government fleet mechanic, I have attended many courses at a GM Training Center, and just during the course of conversation with instructors and dealership mechanics, have learned about different "campaigns", often because I had brought up a subject.
Another surprising point is, each dealership rep at the classes had a different amount of awareness of the campaign programs. Some would say they were snowed under by, say the camber kit campaign on late 80's pickups, while others would learn about it during the same conversation.
The general public never gets a hint unless they go in and have a conversation with a friendly service rep.
Yes, there are many friendly and helpful ones, but, then again, I have left different places where they were just the opposite, and that isn't GM...I deal with Ford and Chrysler also.
Sorry about dragging out...I really just wanted an explination of the Campaigns, and yours in the quote above were very clear, concise, and easy for anyone to understand.
