When you need a car repair, you need it on a timely basis, and it is imperative that you go to an honest mechanic. How do you find the right person to work on your car?
Independent Repair Shop
Have you ever been driving along, maybe with your windows open and maybe singing your favorite song at the top of your lungs, only to see your gas light come on?
The question of where to take your car for repairs may be a difficult one. Should it go to the dealership, or should it go to an independent repair shop? Dealerships come with a number of problems that often lead drivers to go to their local repair shop instead.
Have you been taking your car or truck to a dealership but are wondering what to do now that the new-car or dealership-extended warranty has expired? There are plenty of differing opinions in the ongoing independent repair shops vs. dealership debate.
There is a common assumption that to preserve the warranty on your purchased or leased car, you must take it into the dealership for any necessary work, whether it's repairs or routine maintenance. Perhaps you were even told this by the dealer that sold you a car.
