Why service your Nissan at the dealership

Why service your Nissan at the dealership

When it comes to providing regular maintenance on your car, you want to take your car to a place that you know it will be taken care of. As you have probably noticed, there are a lot of local mechanic shops that make a lot of promises. Unfortunately, not all automotive services departments are created equal. While some local mechanics may say that they may experience repairing and providing maintenance to your specific type of car, the reality is that there is a good chance they are not as knowledgeable about how to service a Nissan vehicle as they may lead you to believe.


So, where should you take your car to get serviced? The short answer is that it is always best to take your vehicle to the dealership for regular maintenance and repairs. Here is a look at some of the things that a dealership can offer you.


1. Certified Technicians



When you take your car to a dealership to get serviced, you can rest assured that your vehicle will only be handled by certified technicians. This means that all of the technicians have received specialized training and have an in-depth understanding of how your car's exact make and model operates.


A local mechanic may have a general idea of how the mechanics work in your vehicle, but he or she will more than likely not have extensive knowledge when it comes to your exact car. The lack of knowledge could lead to a mistake that may end up costing you more money in the long run.


2. Inexpensive Warranty Work



If your vehicle is still under a manufacturer's or dealer's warranty, you should always get the repair work done at a dealership. When a dealership repairs a part of your car that is covered under the warranty, it will more than likely cost you nothing. At a private garage, you will still need to pay for parts and labour costs.


3. Genuine OEM Parts



Service departments at dealerships have access to a wide range of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. These are parts that are made specifically for the make and model of your car. Whether your car needs new spark plugs, an oil filter, or any other replacement part, getting it from the manufacturer will ensure that the part fits your vehicle perfectly, which can help to reduce damage to other parts of your vehicle.


4. Recall Alert



From time to time, every automotive manufacturer in the industry has recalled one or more of their automotive parts. Local mechanics do not keep up with which manufacturer has recalled which part. However, Nissan dealerships get updated notifications regularly to alert them if there is a recall on any part of your car. If a part has been recalled, the certified technician will know exactly how to fix the problem to get you back on the road in a timely manner.
