Should I take my car to the Dealer?

Hey everyone this is Anthony at Fast Lane Automotive. People ask “Should I take my car to the dealership for repairs and maintenance”. Absolutely not and I’ll tell you why I’m so confident in saying this. In 2013-2014 Consumer Reports surveyed the customers of 121,000 visits for automotive service and as it turns out independent repair shops outranked the dealership on pretty much everything, customer satisfaction, price, you name it. That makes sense because at the dealership you get a 1 year, 12,000 mile warranty. At Fast Lane Automotive you get a 3 year 36,000 mile nationwide warranty, we also have loaner cars too, and you don’t have to sit here forever waiting for a simple oil change. But Anthony, if I take my car to you and you put your oil and your parts on it, won’t I lose my manufacturers warranty? Nope, that’s not true either. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act makes it illegal for your dealership to void your warranty simply because someone else worked on your car. But at least you can get popcorn at the dealer, right? Whether it’s brakes, tires, maintenance, or major repairs give us a shot, you will be pleasantly surprised.
