Subaru Mass Recall of Cars and SUVs

Posted January 15, 2013 by Matthew

According to the article, “Subaru recalls nearly 634,000 cars and SUVs” from, Subaru’s mass recall is because the lights below the doors can overheat and cause fires. More specifically, “moisture can get into puddle lights beneath the doors and cause a short circuit that can melt plastic and cause fires.” The recall is expected to begin in February 2013 and Subaru says it will notify customers.

Cars and SUVs that are to be recalled are:

· Outback cars, models 2010-2011

· Legacy cars, models 2010-2011

· Tribeca SUVs, models 2006-2012

· Forester SUVs, models 2009-2012

What to do if you own one of these vehicles: Visit your local Subaru dealer to have your vehicle inspected. Subaru will install an additional fuse at no cost to the owners.

American Auto Body: Open and Ready to Serve You!

Posted April 19, 2010 by Matthew

There’s an old saying that Minnesota has two seasons: Winter and Construction. Keeping this in mind, we here at American Auto Body continue to deal with a major road and bridge construction project in our neighborhood at the intersection of Highways 81 and 169.

Highway 169 is affected in both directions from 77th Avenue to 93rd Avenue North in Brooklyn Park. The intersections of 85th Avenue North, Highway 81 and 169 are also affected by this major project. It has been impressive to watch all of the heavy machinery work on a daily basis to make this all come together.

When it’s all done in the summer of 2011, it will be great and really help move traffic along, but in the meantime, we want to make sure our customers can find their way to our front door! Please keep in mind that there will be many bypasses, detours and lane closures as work progresses, so many traditional wayfinding methods such as Google maps and GPS devices will not be updated on each change.

One major change is how the nearby Fleet Farm has changed the current traffic flow on Lakeland Avenue. Customers must now travel further east to the Fleet Farm gas station to make a turn. Rest assured, we are open for business – as always – at 8208 Lakeland Avenue in Brooklyn Park. Feel free to give us a call on your way over at 763-424-2522.


Thanks again for your continued loyalty and business. We really appreciate it!

Very sincerely,

Matthew Feehan, President
