Why Service With Mazda of Bedford
Car owners should have their car serviced several times each year, including changing the oil, realigning the suspension, and checking and replacing brakes. While some prefer to perform routine maintenance on their own or by going to an independent garage, there are many reasons to consider going to a dealership for service. The benefits of automotive service at Mazda of Bedford include the expertise of technicians that specialize in Mazda vehicles, have state-of-the-art diagnostic and repair equipment, and low prices on quality parts.
Each technician within a dealership’s service department has been specifically trained to service your vehicle. For example, the technicians at Mazda of Bedford know the ins and outs of Mazda vehicles, so you can rest assured that your vehicle will be well taken care of. Technicians at an independent repair shop work on a variety of vehicles, which means they typically don’t have specialized knowledge of specific vehicles.
Dealerships tend to have better diagnostic equipment and tools than private owners or corner garages. Dealerships have more assets to set aside on service centers and manufacturers will often share the latest information about recalls and diagnostic codes with dealership service centers first.
Original Equipment Manufacturer Parts
When working on your vehicle, a dealership will use Original Equipment parts, which are high-quality parts designed for your vehicle in particular. On the other hand, repair shops will usually offer both OEM parts and aftermarket parts. They can use aftermarket parts for a variety of vehicles, which means the parts may not work as well for your vehicle as an OEM part. Dealerships also have fantastic facilities with great service tools and equipment that outpace the equipment in corner garages.
If your vehicle is under warranty, a dealership can perform certain repairs free of charge. A dealership can also offer you an extended warranty that’s backed by the manufacturer. These extended warranties can allow you to have free repairs at different dealerships, which can be helpful if you end up breaking down while on a road trip. Corner garages can also offer warranties, but they typically are shorter or won’t cover both the labor and parts.
If you want to have peace of mind that your vehicle will receive excellent service, it’s worth going to a dealership’s service department. Mazda of Bedford encourages you to schedule service with us when you’re in need of seasonal service, replacements or repairs.
