Three Reasons to Avoid Taking Your Luxury Car to the Dealership for Maintenance

Published in Blog Thursday, 17 August 2017 15:46

Anyone who drives a luxury car knows that the only way to ensure it runs perfectly every time you turn the key is to have it serviced on a regular basis. The same is true for a regular vehicle, but luxury car brands tend to need a bit more TLC if you want them to operate as efficiently as they’re meant to. Luxury cars need to be looked at and worked on by the hands of a professional, not a car owner who’s watched a few videos online about regular vehicle maintenance.

You have two options when the time comes to have your luxury car tuned up. You could either bring your vehicle to a dealership, or you can take it to an independent mechanic in Sarasota, FL. While both shops employ professionals, we believe it’s a much better idea to avoid the dealership altogether. Continue reading to find out why:

  • Dealerships cost more: The main concern people bring up when considering whether or not to bring their vehicle to the dealership for maintenance is the total cost involved. To be fair, all dealerships aren’t equal, and some may even charge less than a local mechanic. But in general, you can expect to pay a lot more when you take your car to the dealer. Why is that the case? It’s not like mechanics at the dealer have some sort of secret way to service your car that justifies hundreds of extra dollars on your bill. It’s sad, but dealerships charge more for vehicle service simply because they can. Bring your car into Lowe’s Automotive Service, Inc., where you’ll pay a fair price for expert service and repairs.

  • You may not get expert service: If you’ve ever walked into a dealership, you may have noticed that they have a ton of mechanics working. How can you be sure that all of those people on the floor are true experts in their field? When you need to have your vehicle serviced, bring it to a mechanic in Sarasota, FL working at a smaller, independent shop like ours. It’s true that we have fewer employees than the big dealerships in town, but everyone who works in our shop has been vetted and is the best in the business.

  • Poor customer service: The more people you have on staff, the harder it can be to maintain the quality of customer service at your shop. As a customer, you never know who you’re going to talk to or deal with when you walk into big dealerships that have hundreds of employees. There’s generally no personal connection with customers in these environments. Contrast this with Lowe’s Automotive Service, Inc., a small, family-owned business with deep ties to the community. We understand how important customer service is, so you know you’ll be greeted with a smile when you walk into our shop.

Don’t waste your time or money taking your car back to the dealership for regular maintenance or repairs. Give us a call to learn about our services, and trust that your luxury vehicle is in good hands when it’s at Lowe’s Automotive Service, Inc.!
