There are so many reasons as to why you should make sure that you take your car to recognized and good garage. When it comes to garages or service centers – they come in two types. Independent and the other are the ones connected to the car dealers or manufacturers. Here are the few reasons why it is important to get your car to a good garage.
Garages that are connected to the dealers are trained and taught on how to repair their vehicles. A BMW mechanic who is trained by the company itself has a better chance of diagnosing the problem better than a normal mechanic.
Even Mercedes Benz repairs can be done by those who know about the car. The independent garages and mechanics won’t know most parts of how the vehicle is assembled. Even if they did buying parts separately might cost more than giving everything to one garage. Even if you buy the parts separately – sometimes the fixing a new part might not be properly fixed and that makes it prone to another repair. Just ask yourself who will more chances of getting your vehicle fixed?
What’s more is that the dealers have access to information on the production of the parts and even on new vehicles. This information is not given to everyone and not in public. The only people who will know are the dealers and going to them to know if you will be able to get a certain part of your vehicle replace will not take days to know because they are totally aware of the production lines. If you had to go to an independent they will have to check with a dealer and then let you know which will take a day or two. Information about how the certain parts of the vehicle work is also a crucial element in diagnosing the problem of the vehicle. Further, the dealer works mostly on their specific set of car line or brand thus they are very familiar with how the vehicle has been assembled. This makes the diagnosis faster and the repairs faster. In business terms you would call it job specialization.
Technology and the world itself are developing at a rapid pace. Your garage must be up to date with latest tech, methods, equipment, etc. The dealers get their share of exposure to new tech and new equipment but independent mechanics will have a hard time catching up to the trends because it is difficult to get most of the new types of tools in the market.
