Why You Shouldn't Consider an Independent Dealer

Last updated 6 years ago

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:

Better Selection

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.


Service Departments

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.

Specialized Knowledge

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.
