When Your Vehicle is Under Warranty

Many people are under the false assumption that if they have a newer car or truck they must take it to the dealership for routine, preventive maintenance and repairs. Some dealers will encourage this misconception and infer that your warranty might be voided if you take your vehicle to an independent shop for repairs or maintenance.

Choosing the Right Mechanic for Your Auto Repair Needs
If you aren't sure where you should take your car for its scheduled maintenance, you might find this video very interesting.

The video is from an ABC News affiliate in the Bay Area of California, but the content is true here in Northern Colorado as well.

Bottom line, this is a great explanation on why you should choose to have your car repaired at places like E&B Automotive rather than the dealership.
Key Points from the Video

Independent automotive repair shops have access to the same equipment as the dealership.

Auto repairs done at independent garages typically cost less than those done at the dealership.

Unless you have a car that is under warranty where you will get your car repaired for free, there is no real reason to go to the dealer.

Car owners report higher satisfaction with work done at independent auto repair shops as compared to work done by dealerships.

Make sure you select a reputable auto mechanic shop with excellent reviews--like E&B Auto!
