Subaru Service vs. Third-Party Shops



No matter how well you care for your car, eventually, it will require service. You may be tempted to drive to your local neighborhood mechanic to take care of the basics, but before you do, consider the many reasons why Subaru Service is not only a better choice, it can save you big in the long run over a third-party shop.

Specialized Technicians

In third-party shops, you'll meet with the mechanic and discuss what your car needs and then, they'll either do the work themselves or hand it off to an apprentice. You have no way of knowing if "Gabe from Grand Junction" has experience with car's like yours or if he's just a guy who's good with his hands.

At a Subaru Service Center, only factory-trained and certified technicians will have access to your vehicle. Each is specially trained to understand the mechanical and electronics systems. And, because these techs have been approved by Subaru to perform the necessary tasks on your vehicle's maintenance schedule, your warranty will remain intact.

Professional Equipment

Today's modern cars are, essentially, computers on wheels. Keeping them in prime form means having access to the latest equipment, including computer diagnostics that can help get to the bottom of electronic issues quickly and without the often lengthy hit-or-miss process employed by many mechanics.

Dealerships are also required to use factory designed repair equipment engineered to fit your brand of vehicle. That means faster repairs, less guesswork, and less potential for damage if a tool doesn't work quite as well as the tech had hoped for.

Quality of Parts

When you choose to bring your car to a certified service center, you'll know that only factory original or certified replacement parts will be used in your vehicle repair. These parts come with a standard 12-month/12,000-mile warranty and are made to the exact specifications of the parts they're replacing. This attention to quality ensures your vehicle runs as it was intended and, should you have any issues you won't be left stranded with a big repair bill - you're covered. This is especially important when repairing or replacing safety equipment like brakes that, if not correct, could fail on the windy roads to Vail, leaving you in a dangerous position.

You local mechanic could choose to use cheap aftermarket replacement parts, which may not be of the same quality or have the same warranty protection. So, if your part fails or doesn't fit properly and damages your car, you're stuck paying for the repairs.
