Benefits of Servicing your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or Ram at a Dealership

The age-old debate: should you service your car at the dealership or at an independent mechanic? Although there are arguments for both, the simple fact of the matter is that dealerships offer things you simply can't get with an independent shop or a mechanic. The benefits of dealership vs. independent far outweigh those of independent vs. dealer, and will ultimately save you a lot of time and money in the long run.

The Staff

First and foremost, you have the highly skilled and experienced staff. With dealerships, you have specifically trained technicians equipped to work on certain makes and models. They know the cars inside and out and can perform the service quickly and effectively. Dealership technicians are considered specialists when working on a particular line of vehicles. They have been manufacturer-trained and, in a lot of cases, only work on the cars sold through that dealership. What's more, the specialist training is in most cases limited to a manufacturer's network of dealerships, encompassing the technicians themselves, as well as the service managers, the advisors, and the support staff.

 

The Facility

The same applies to the facilities. Dealerships have the tools and equipment necessary to carry out maintenance and repairs on a particular line of cars, which is more than what can be said for generic independent shops. Simply put, dealerships have the tools to build a car from the ground up.

 

The Relationship

When you're dealing with a dealership, you're forming a bond and a relationship. By having your car serviced regularly at the dealership, they have an accurate and an up-to-date picture of your car's history and condition. With all the prior service records, dealerships will be quickly able to diagnose any future issues or problems which can arise. You won't have to worry about inaccurate diagnostic information and inexact service timeframes since you're going through all servicing with that one particular dealership.

Parts

Dealerships have to use OEM-quality components when servicing and maintain vehicles. This means you're getting a factory-backed component to replace the original, which will last as long, if not longer. It's a win-win scenario. You don't have to worry about sourcing the components yourself or inspect the car afterward, worried the independent workshop might have lied to you. In most cases, OEM components match an aftermarket equivalent's price, so there's no use going AEM in any situation.

Resale Value

If you want to sell the car, having a full-service history by a single authorized dealership will boost the value massively. Potential buyers are far more interested in the fact that the car was serviced properly and regularly than by any aftermarket 'enhancements'. In a way, you'll be getting back your money's worth since the increase of the resale value alone will be enough to justify taking your car to the dealership, let alone the above-mentioned benefits we already discussed.
