Getting regular maintenance and repairs are part of owning your own vehicle. You’ve probably had to decide if you want to service your vehicle at the dealership or at your local garage. When making that decision, it might help to know that there are a few distinct benefits to having your vehicle serviced at the dealership. 

Why Get Dealership Service? 

Here are just a few advantages to getting your vehicle serviced at the dealership: 

Factory-trained technicians
The technicians at your local dealership are trained specifically to work on your vehicle. Auto makers provide training programs and dealerships send their technicians to these sessions to learn not only about new vehicles, but about new processes for a variety of repairs. So, when you take your vehicle to the dealership of the same maker, you know that the person working on it is a certified expert.    

Specialized tools
Not only do dealership have technicians with factory training, but they also have the specialized diagnostic and repair tools for your vehicle. The dealership will have state-of-the-art facilities and tools that were designed to fit your vehicle. That means that they will be able to confidently diagnose your vehicle and have the exact fit of tool to skillfully remove and replace any parts. So, there’s no concern of damaged or cracked pieces.  

Genuine OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts
If a part needs to be replaced, it will be replaced with a Genuine OEM part. That means that the same parts that your vehicle came off the line with will be used to replace or repair your vehicle. While some aftermarket parts work well, Genuine OEM parts are guaranteed to be the right fit and work exactly as the original. Plus, a genuine part will ensure that your warranty stays intact.  

Warranty coverage
Speaking of warranty, a dealership will be able to make any warranty repairs for free and offer an extended warranty on parts or service where applicable. They also have access to the maker’s technical service bulletins (TSBs), which detail any other repair or process that might be needed to properly service your vehicle.  

Other perks
Some dealerships offer additional perks to getting your vehicle serviced including loaner cars, shuttle service, special offers and coupons, and comfortable waiting areas that include comfy seating, complimentary coffee and WiFi. For customers on the go, having your car out of commission for a day can be a huge hassle. Calling ahead to ask about loaner vehicles where available is a good strategy, as you may be able to request one be reserved for your use, or plan to get there early enough to ensure a loaner is available. 

Service Your Vehicle at the Dealership
These are just a few of the benefits to servicing your vehicle at the dealership. From factory-trained technicians and specialized tools to genuine parts, warranty coverage and more, the dealership service department is an excellent choice for regular maintenance and repairs.
