If a manufacturer issues an update for a vehicle’s electronic system, it becomes necessary to have experts reflash (update) software. This process is relatively straightforward, as it likely involves tweaking an algorithm or resetting other minor parameters not vital to safety but that might improve drivability, emissions, or fuel efficiency. Since manufacturers roll out updates regularly, a comprehensive reprogram for your car’s computer might also be warranted.
