Why You Need To Take Your Honda To The Dealership For Service

Why would you pay tons more money and wait weeks for an appointment to get your Honda vehicle serviced at a Honda dealership when you could go to a private garage where you would pay less money for parts and labour and get your car on the hoist that same day?
Simple answer: This isn’t 1981. Sure, a good number of OEM Honda parts are still more expensive than aftermarket product. This is a simple case of ‘you get what you pay for’. However, the price gap between an OEM Honda replacement part and an aftermarket replacement part has shrunk to the point of being almost non-existent. In some cases, OEM parts are actually less expensive than their lower quality aftermarket counterparts.
Also, labour rates may be, at most, $5 more per hour than private shops. If the labour rate is a lot less at a private garage, once again, beware of ‘you get what you pay for’. Unlike the olden days and what private garages have advertised, you do not need to make an appointment weeks in advance for an oil change. Most often, you can get your car in next day, if not same day.
Here’s five more reasons you should be taking your four wheeled investment to the dealership for service:
1. Your Honda dealership has proper diagnostic equipment. The private garages are using generic diagnostic equipment that isn’t fully equipped to tell the mechanic what is exactly wrong with the vehicle.
2. Your Honda dealership has the proper specialty tools needed to work on your vehicle. Without the proper tools, the job simply cannot get done right.
3. Only OEM parts will be used at your Honda dealership unless you indicate you would like aftermarket parts used. Oxgord Signature Car Cover Only your Honda dealership has the proper parts catalogue to determine the exact part for your vehicle’s needs.
