Dealership Service vs. Generic Maintenance
When your vehicle needs service, there are many different shops you can take your automobile in order to solve the problem. While many people say that service at third-party shops might be more affordable, is it really the best choice for the longevity of your vehicle? Check out our top reasons to bring your Nissan vehicle to Riverhead Nissan for your next service appointment.
When your car is repaired at a dealership, you can rest easy that it will be repaired with parts from the original manufacturer. While aftermarket parts might be more affordable, many times they are made to fit a range of vehicles. With OEM parts, you know it was made to fit your exact model and its needs, and the part is just as good as the one that your car was built with. Our parts department is also fully stocked, so we are ready to go at a moment’s notice with the part you need to get back on the road.
When you visit a mechanic, you want to make sure they know the details of your vehicle. When buying your car, you probably chose it because of what made it different from all the other cars on the market. That could make it slightly different to repair than the other vehicles. While a mechanic might not be aware of little details like that which could affect a repair, team members at Riverhead Nissan are trained to know the ins and outs of every model we sell. Since we work with the same manufacturers all day, you can also rest assured that we’ve had tons of practice (and certification).
If you are driving a new Nissan vehicle, it’s possible that the fixes being performed on your vehicle are covered under warranty. If you take your vehicle to a third-party shop, there’s no way to know. Even if you do know it’s covered under the warrantly, only a dealer can perform the task and submit it to be covered. If you’re not sure if the project falls under warranty, we’ll work with you to find the best solution.
If your vehicle needs service, we hope to see you soon at Riverhead Nissan.
