How would I go about finding out any TSB / Recalls on a 1996 Cobra? Obviously, they don't do me any good now, but it could help diagnosis at a later date in the future. Thanks!


Also, thanks for this, very informative.

Is there any way to know if my car had any of these updates as I have only owned it for a year?

Thanks Casper.
militan it is possible to find out by having an Oasis ran on your car. That will tell you most everything. Maybe Casper would run an oasis for you if you asked him to.

What's an oasis? Is that like a run on the VIN, like a detailed carfax type report?
