Why Dealer Service is Best

Ongoing maintenance is an important part of owning a car. We all have to pay attention to servicing our vehicles. From simple oil changes and tire rotations to major repairs, you want a shop you can trust. For today's automobiles, there are many reasons why service at a dealership that is trained to take care of your make and model of car is the best option. You might not think of your local dealership as the place to go for a flat tire or a simple oil change, but the fact is, there are many reasons why it is the best place to go. 

Dealer service departments get the latest service bulletins for your vehicle and have the specialized tools and factory trained technicians needed to maintain your car in perfect condition. Why is dealer service best? Let's find out.
The Right Equipment & Parts

Your local Lithia dealer takes pride in providing state-of-the-art equipment and tools designed for your car's make and model, and our ASE-certified technicians will assure you get the best service possible. Lithia Motors also has the advantage of our dealer network of over 270 dealerships nationwide to get parts instantly, saving you time and money.
Our dealerships only use Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts from the automaker that meet the standards of your vehicle for repairs. This makes sure the parts in your car are genuine, made for your make of car and that they fit and work correctly every time. Local shops often use aftermarket parts that may not fit or work properly.
Warranty Repairs

A major benefit of dealer service involves warranty protection. By using an authorized dealer of your make of car, you can be sure that your vehicle is covered under its factory warranty. These automaker warranties include a bumper-to-bumper comprehensive warranty as well as a powertrain warranty on the engine and transmission. These warranties outline your car's specific maintenance schedule. While maintenance and repairs can be made by third-party mechanics shops, they will often not be covered under the manufacturer's warranty and could void your factory warranty.
*By using an authorized Lithia dealer of your vehicle's manufacturer, you can be assured that you will not void your warranty. All warranty work should be carried out by an authorized dealership. Besides the limited warranties on your vehicle, you can also purchase.
Peace of Mind

The number one reason why dealer service is beat comes down to peace of mind. Your local Lithia dealer knows you and your car. We have the complete history of your vehicle, know when it has been serviced, what special services are required coming up, what has been repaired over time, and we track all recalls and any special service bulletins on your car, truck, or SUV. Every time you bring your car in for service at one of our dealerships, you know that our goal is to keep you as a customer for life. We will diagnose and repair your vehicle quickly and efficiently, and get the job done right.
