Best Reasons to Get Service at an Authorized Dealer - Service Information for Thornton, CO

When the time comes to take your Subaru in for service, which do you choose: an authorized Subaru service center, an independent local mechanic, or a big national chain? While each type of place has its own benefits, there are many huge advantages you'll get at the dealership that you simply won't find elsewhere.

5. Comparable Prices

There's an idea that the dealership is the most expensive option out there. While some services do cost a bit more, most of them are comparable to what you'd find at other places around town. Sometimes they even cost less! For the ones that cost a little extra, there are some very good reasons for that--as you'll see below.

4. Trained & Certified Technicians

At an authorized Subaru service center, the technicians know your Subaru inside and out. They've been trained and certified by Subaru, and that training doesn't stop once they get their certification. In order to stay certified, they have to regularly undergo further training. What's more, they work with Subaru models day in and day out, so their experience matches their qualifications.

3. Up-to-Date Equipment

The equipment needed to diagnose and fix problems with vehicles is expensive. For this reason, even DIY enthusiasts will sometimes bring their cars to us for diagnostics or more involved service. This also gives the dealership a benefit over local mechanics. At the dealer, you'll find up-to-date and Subaru-specific equipment.

2. Warranty-Friendly Service

The warranty that came with your Subaru is an affirmation that Subaru stands behind the quality of its work. To make sure that the warranty stays intact, you should have any service performed by technicians at an authorized Subaru dealership. Independent mechanics may void the warranty in a number of ways, while the Subaru technicians at the dealership know how to keep it intact.

1. Factory-Approved Parts

Your Subaru deserves only the best when it comes to parts and chemicals. At the dealership, you'll find that the technicians use only genuine OEM and Subaru-approved parts. In addition to fitting your Subaru perfectly, these parts will give you a level of quality not always found in third-party aftermarket parts.
