Imports, Dealerships and Car Repair
If you own a foreign car, you want to avoid any type of extensive car repair work. In Philadelphia, one common way to accomplish this is to ensure a regime of car maintenance is put into place, followed and maintained. This often involves your import car dealership.
Avoiding car repair for your imported car often starts with your dealership. It is important to talk to your dealership about what matters can affect the model and year. You need to know:
- What is the factory-recommended schedule?
- What components comprising your car require greater consideration?
- What preventive maintenance is required?
- What repair issues you should look for?
You also need to inquire whether your dealership offers maintenance and repair services. Ask questions pertinent to car services including:
- What services are provided: Maintenance? Repairs? Replacements?
- The qualifications of the mechanics/technicians
- The available equipment – Is it designed to address foreign vehicles?
- Is the equipment and other pieces of technology modern and suited to address the requirements of foreign vehicles?
The answers to these questions help you keep your car functioning optimally.
Maintaining your Vehicle
If you want to ensure the longevity of your car, you need to have in place a regular schedule of car maintenance. Sustaining a maintenance regime has a positive impact on your car’s performance. While true of any vehicle, it is doubly important when it comes to an import. Yet, the goal remains the same – preventing even the hint of any expensive car repair work.
