Manufacturer Vs Cheap Service Centre

Each year millions of motorists shun their local car dealerships looking for a cheaper option for a car service.

This is particularly true for owners whose cars are more than three years old and out of warranty. The assumption seems to be that they will pay less money by getting the work done at a service centre other than the manufacturer. Most cars coming out of warranty are either (1) getting on in years, or (2) have usually clocked up more than 100,000kms. With this in mind, it is fair to say that there is in fact a greater need to have your car serviced regularly - and thoroughly - to maintain all the working parts and ensure its longevity.

This is important for the safety of you and your passengers as well as for your vehicle’s resale value.

We all know preventative medicine is better than remedial action once something is broken. The same concept is applicable for your car. The best way to take care of your vehicle is by identifying any basic wear and tear that could lead to future problems if left unchecked. And having the team who have known your car’s history since “birth” just makes sense. The more the mechanic knows your car and its journey so far, the better they can take care of it for you.
