While an independent mechanic may be able to offer you what seem like amazing deals, they may not be the best deal around. Dealership service departments are the experts in automotive repairs and, odds are, you'll face fewer problems there. While an independent may have started at a dealership, they won't be able to offer you the same benefits as a fully staffed service department.

Technicians staff a dealership service department. These are the specialists, the ones who fix and service your vehicle. More often than not, they're trained by the manufacturer and only work on one brand of vehicle. That means they'll know the common problems and quick fixes, saving you a bundle.

Once you start servicing your vehicle at a dealership, a file is opened for your vehicle. In it you'll find a complete history of your vehicle's service and repairs. That's a huge benefit when it comes time to sell or trade-in your vehicle for a new one.

Best of all, dealerships also offer guarantees on their work due to the manufacturer-provided parts. Dealerships will perform service and repairs for free if your car is still under warranty. The original manufacturer makes every part so they'll fit and operate at peak performance for years to come.

These are just a few reasons to pick a dealership service department over a corner garage. From the highly trained staff to the manufacturer-backed parts, a dealership is a smart move for both your vehicle and your wallet.
