Dealership VS. Independent
Q: Is L& M qualified to work on my new car?
A: YES! We have the latest diagnostic equipment and information at our facility. We also utilize an online database of diagnostic procedures, repair procedures and can access recalls and factory service bulletins. We also ensure that your services are performed on time and maintain your records for you.
According to recent research from the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA), vehicle repairs cost an average 34 percent more at new car dealerships than at independent repair shops. The result: consumers are being hit with $11.7 billion in excess cost each year.
The study reveals differences in the cost of parts and labor between domestic and import vehicle nameplates and from city to city. For example, consumers in Los Angeles pay as much as 46.8% more at dealerships than at independent repair shops for repairs.
Donít forget! Your new vehicle warranty remains in effect when we perform routine services.
Our Services Maintain Your New Car Warranty
Q: Do I have to take my car to the dealer to keep my warranty valid?
A: No, however, you must maintain your vehicle as recommended by the manufacturer.
Cars still need proper maintenance, as outlined in your car's owners manual. Be sure to keep accurate maintenance records and receipts. To neglect this responsibility to your car will not only jeopardize your claims getting paid, but will also put your investment at risk. All extended warranties require that you properly maintain your vehicle and perform the manufacturer's recommended maintenance.
