In a most unexpected and unlikely move from an automaker known for its superb craftsmanship and unparalleled quality, Rolls-Royce recently announced a recall of some of its 2010 Ghost models for a potential heating problem in the cooling systems. Rolls is recalling 589 Ghost models built between September 2009 and September 2010 and equipped with turbochargers due to a circuit board on an auxiliary water pump that can overheat, smolder and potentially catch fire in the engine compartment. It is very, very rare that Rolls-Royce has a problem with any component of its luxury vehicles, but Rolls told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that the smallest potential for fire was enough to voluntarily issue the recall.
Rolls said that the auxiliary pump cools the turbocharger on some motors during operation and continues to operate when the car is turned off. In some Ghost models, the overheated circuit board can cause the pump to fail, creating the potential for fire as the heat builds up. Rolls admits that it has not heard of any fires due to overheating pumps but is proactively addressing the problem. Ghost owners can return their autos to the dealer to have the pump replaced for free and can contact the automaker at 877-877-3735 for more information.
We suspect that one of Rolls’ parts suppliers has some serious explaining to do, as this automaker will not look kindly on a vendor that makes the brand look bad under any circumstances. Any company wishing to do business with Rolls must endure a very thorough vetting process to ensure that their standards for quality are consistent with Rolls’ decades-long reputation for excellence.
We do not currently have any of the recalled Rolls-Royce Ghost models in our fleet of luxury vehicles, but we do offer a few vintage Rolls limousines that are in no danger of having their circuit boards recalled! These beauties from the 40s are short on electronic gadgets, but very long on style, luxury and an unmistakable sense of elegance. If you would like to rent a San Francisco vintage Rolls-Royce from our selection for a wedding, anniversary, birthday, sightseeing tour or another special occasion, please call us at NLS Limo today at 1-800-339-8936! We promise the only recalls you’ll have to endure with our antique Rolls limos will be recalling what a wonderful time you had riding in them!
Here at NLS Limo, we like to think that our little corner of the business world is too special and far too cool to be pigeonholed into one industry. Since we rent Bay Area limousines, party buses, corporate sedans, antique vehicles, luxury coaches and many other types of vehicles, it’s fair to say that we’re in the automobile business. Since nearly all of these vehicles feature luxury amenities such as wet bars, flat-screen TVs, superb sound systems, mood lighting, moon roofs and other sumptuous accents, you could say that we are in the entertainment business as well. Indeed, our business model straddles several different niches. The one that brings us the most joy and satisfaction and the one that we believe is the key to our success is our focus on being the very best in the hospitality business.
It is our privilege and our pleasure to be ambassadors of the Bay Area to our many clients who visit from other cities and countries and rely on us as their San Francisco limo provider. It is also very gratifying that so many Bay Area residents choose us again and again to help them celebrate the special events in their lives. What are some of the other reasons why so many guests rent luxury vehicles from us? We’re not big on scientific analyses around here, but we believe it has a great deal to do with the following:
- Superb customer service
Bottom line: it is our job to ensure that each one of our guests has a wonderful time while riding in our vehicles, and we go above and beyond to ensure that this happens each and every time. In the very unusual event that something is not right or there is an unexpected delay, we make it right and pursue every opportunity to ensure that each guest is satisfied. We’re not perfect, but it’s not for lack of trying!
- Attention to detail
Our guests know that they are not the first to ride in one of our San Francisco limos, party buses or other luxury vehicles, but we do our very best to make it appear to be the case! Our detail team takes a great deal of pride in their work and won’t release a vehicle for service until all evidence of the previous guest is gone.
Now more than ever, we understand that our guests have limited means and that many have been saving for months for their special occasion. Instead of offering the lowest possible rate and nickel-and-diming our guests on additional charges, we look for ways to offer the best experience at the most affordable rate that includes nearly all the amenities and perks that a limo guest deserves.
There may be other reasons why our guests rely on us again and again for all their San Francisco luxury ground transportation needs, and if you have something to add to this list, we’d love to hear from you! We welcome any and all comments, questions and criticism as we feel that in the end, it makes us a better limo service and one that is better able to anticipate the needs of its guests. To let us know what you think and/or to reserve a Bay Area limo for an upcoming occasion, please give us a call at 1-800-339-8936! Thanks again for making NLS Limo your preferred San Francisco limousine service!
Some Cleveland, Ohio teens were treated to a very special prom recently, which included prom transportation on a party bus, a nice dinner, complimentary dresses, tuxedos and flowers and other treats to make the evening extra special. These teens are part of a special group of people; each is battling cancer or is the date or parent of a teen battling cancer. The first “Prom to Remember” was held at the Ritz Carlton in downtown Cleveland, and, judging by the popularity of the event and the glowing smiles of the attendees, it is very likely that this will become an annual event.
A report out of Kentucky provides the kind of news we all could use more of and more often. An elderly resident of Magnolia Village Care and Rehabilitation Center in Bowling Green had a wish to ride in a limo, receive a full body treatment at a day spa, go out for lunch, do some shopping and ride back to her home in the assisted living facility. Some employees at SunBridge Healthcare, a 60-bed nursing center that cares for adults with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, granted 85-year-old Gladys Revels’ wish recently and made her day.
