DON’T WORRY…YOUR WARRANTY IS SAFE!
If your dealership has closed, you may be wondering where you can take your vehicle now and still receive the same quality services and attention to detail that you’ve come to expect. You may feel your warranty is now null and void. There is no need to panic about the validity of your warranty or quality service.
Many consumers don’t realize that it is actually a law (Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) that an independent repair shop can service your car and you will not be jeopardizing your warranty in any way. Just like you have to do with the dealership, you need to keep records of services and have them done as recommended in your owner’s manual.
Most independent shop owners, such as ours, can provide you with the same excellent service you have been receiving from your dealership. Independents, like the dealerships, also have:
- ASE certified technicians
- Quality parts and service
- State-of-the-art tools and equipment
- Dedication to customer service
- On-going training to keep current with the latest vehicle innovations
According to the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association, vehicle repairs cost an average of 34% more at a new car dealership than at independent repair shops.
If your dealership has provided you with years of excellent service…don’t worry. Try an independent shop conveniently located near you. We’ve got you covered!
