Finding a good mechanic may appear to be a complicated task, but the truth is the best mechanics are at your local Garner-area dealership. Vehicles need regular maintenance to keep them running properly. This maintenance usually consists of simple items such as oil changes, but there are a number of reasons why the dealer should be the only place you take your vehicles.
The average mechanic does not generally have access to the full range of tools that are required to work on every vehicle. The biggest issue is that general mechanics specialize in a wide range of vehicles. Dealerships work on their brand of vehicles and have the exact tools needed for every job. Another important factor is parts—dealers use original manufacturer parts, which are the factory-made parts for your vehicle. This means your vehicle will be repaired and maintained with the highest-quality parts available, not some aftermarket parts that might only get the job done for a while.
The staff at your dealership consists of technicians who must go through both general mechanics’ training, as well as dealer-specific training to ensure they know exactly how to work on that brand of vehicle. This ensures that when they work on your vehicle, they know where every piece is supposed to go and will quickly make any repairs or spot any potential problems. Dealerships are also the first—and sometimes only—shops to receive recall or change notices. This means if a recall is announced and you have your vehicle serviced at the dealer, they will inform you and make the repair.
Time is valuable, especially today. Dealerships will have the work performed on your vehicle finished quickly. The two factors mentioned above, combined with the dealer’s large shop and staff, ensures your vehicle will be out the door as fast as possible. And the peace of mind in knowing that your vehicle was repaired properly every time is invaluable.
