If you want to keep your car running smoothly, it’s important to bring it into the mechanic every now and then for a checkup. But where should you take your car for service? Here are some reasons why you should always service your car at a dealership:
When you bring your car into a dealership service center, like ours at Carl Hogan, you know it will be in good hands. Every mechanic is manufacturer-trained and typically only work on your make of vehicle. The mechanics even participate in ongoing training programs, so they constantly know the best way to fix your vehicle.
Manufacturer-backed extended warranties
Typically, when you purchase a car from the dealership, you automatically get an extended warranty. Under this warranty, service is simple. There is a large network of available dealers available to you under your car’s warranty, making it easy to find a place to get your car repaired.
Automatic recall checks
Every time you bring your car into the dealership for its routine maintenance, the mechanics automatically check for recalls and technical service bulletins on your make and model. So, even if you’ve moved since you bought your car, you will know when there is an open recall on your vehicle.
Original manufacturer parts
Dealerships only offer Original Equipment (OE) parts, which have a specific standard of quality and engineering authorized by the manufacturer. This means that each part typically has a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty on parts and labor for parts at the dealer level. You know that you will always be getting the best quality parts possible when you go into a dealership for your car’s service.
These are just a few reasons why you should service your car at a dealership. If you need to bring your car in for its routine check up, don’t forget to schedule your service appointment with Carl Hogan today!
