Four Reasons to Get Service at a Dealership
If you think all car services are created equal, then you’re surely mistaken. There are several major things that set apart service at car dealerships from service at a corner garage. Here are four benefits to getting your vehicle serviced at The Duell’s Evansville Kia.
If a vehicle is under warranty, there’s only one place to go to guarantee warranty-covered repairs, and that’s a dealership. Dealerships are the ones who are paid by the manufacturer to perform the warranty work, and any work that’s outside of the original warranty may also be covered by its own warranty depending on the circumstance.
Dealerships are representing the manufacturer and brand itself in everything they do, so all of their service standards are set by the manufacturer itself. Because of this, dealerships tend to have larger facilities fit to accommodate more cars at once, and will also have tools and equipment that are to the brand’s specific needs.
Manufacturer Trained Employees
Not all cars are created equal, so to get the very best and high quality repairs and service work done to your vehicle you need someone who is trained for that specific brand. A technician at a dealership will have had training by the manufacturer on its specific brand of vehicles, while a technician at a corner garage likely only has a general knowledge of vehicles rather than being a specialist for a specific brand.
At dealerships all replacement parts are guaranteed to fit and work precisely in the vehicle. This is because dealerships only use OEM parts, or Original Equipment Manufacturer parts. These parts are made from the same blueprint as the parts that originally went into the vehicle on the assembly line. At corner garages, they may try to use aftermarket parts instead, which are made to be like OEM parts but are not as accurate and therefore may not work well or last long.
