When your car is acting up, it’s always a good idea to bring it in for a checkup. Should you bring your car to a dealership service centre or your local mechanic? Here, we highlight why it’s best to service your car at a dealership.
Quality OEM Parts
If you’re getting your car fixed at the dealership, then you are likely going to receive Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. These parts are made specifically for your vehicle. In fact, they’re exact replicas of the parts that are already in your vehicle. This guarantees that your car continues to run smoothly. When you bring your vehicle into your local garage, you will sometimes receive aftermarket parts that aren’t made by the manufacturer, which means they may cause issues in the future.
While the technicians you find at any garage will likely have top-notch training, when you bring your vehicle into a dealership, you know you’re getting a technician that has received specialized training in your make and model. That’s because they must be certified in order to work on your vehicle. Most dealers also have ongoing training programs to keep their technicians up to date on the latest repair techniques, which means your vehicle is in good hands at a dealership service centre.
When you purchase a new car, you automatically receive a warranty that covers your car from bumper to bumper for a specific time or distance. This warranty won’t be honoured if you head over to a local garage, which is why bringing your car to be serviced at a dealership is a more appealing option. With this warranty, you will likely get your car fixed at little to no cost to you. If you happen to be outside your warranty, the repair that is completed on your car will actually come under its own warranty. That means if it needs fixing again in the future, the cost will typically be covered.
