When you need to buy a vehicle, whether new or certified pre-owned, you should turn to the experts for help, which means going to a licensed dealership. Independent car lots may have attractive deals, but going to a dealer licensed by the vehicle manufacturer has a variety of advantages. Let’s look at what makes licensed dealers superior to independents:
A dealership usually has a far better selection than an independent car lot. When shopping around for a new vehicle, having a large variety of models within the make of your choice is essential. By utilizing a dealership, you can look at a wide range of vehicles in one convenient location, instead of driving from one used car lot to another to find the specific car you want.
Another great feature of a reputable dealership is its service department. When a car needs routine automotive maintenance, having a dealership you can return to is invaluable because of the quality of work performed and the technicians’ access to service bulletins. Service bulletins are special manufacturer-issued reports which alert qualified maintenance technicians to common issues or suggest alternative maintenance routes. An experienced and well-informed service branch is yet another reason to consider a certified dealership over an independent car lot.
Finally, a dealership affiliated with a manufacturer is advantageous because of the specialization that comes with being involved with only a few select brands. When a dealership and its employees only handle two or three vehicle makes, they become experts in the workings of those vehicles. A more knowledgeable representative is a more helpful representative, which is always a plus when shopping for a car.
