Volkswagen Dare to Compare

Dare to Compare: Independent Service Shop vs. Certified Service at Volkswagen of Clear Lake

With advancements in today’s vehicles, their intricacies and technology require narrow tolerances and expert care. For your Volkswagen to run with optimal performance, reliability, and safety, you need a certified technician trained to work on your specific make and model. A Volkswagen technician knows what to look for, and how to diagnose potential issues quickly and correctly. If a repair is needed, they know what goes where, rather than potentially guessing or estimating placement. Protect your vehicle investment by using the trusted Volkswagen service department in Houston at Volkswagen of Clear Lake.

Certified Services Comes with Expertise and Guarantees

A certified Volkswagen technician knows your model inside and out. They have the lasted recall information and warranties as they apply to your particular car, as well as the latest technology and tools to get the job done. They can also track your vehicle’s maintenance and repairs over time, saving you from having to remember when your last routine maintenance was conducted, and they can keep an eye on any parts that may be near failure. When parts are needed, our certified technicians at Volkswagen of Clear Lake use genuine OEM parts straight from the manufacturer, created specifically for your vehicle’s measurements and performance, whether it be a new battery or simply new wiper blades. Service from a certified department, therefore, comes with guaranteed parts and labor. This means that if you do have issues following service in the rare chance, you can bring the vehicle back.

Is a Third-Party Mechanic Cheaper?

While on the surface, an independent mechanic may be cheaper, it is not the more economical option in the long run. The independent service shop may charge a fraction of the cost upfront, but that is because they likely use cheaper third-party parts and may not have the knowledge and expertise to repair or replace the parts in your particular vehicle. The lower price now ignores the fact that you will likely need another repair down the road and potentially unnecessary replacement costs. Ensure your vehicle is properly maintained from the start, so you don’t have to go in again for another service quicker than needed. This also helps if you plan to sell your Volkswagen in the future. A certified service department can provide a clear record of repairs performed using manufacturer protocols, and to factory specifications. The use of genuine OEM parts shows a buyer that the vehicle has all of the necessary parts to function as it should, and at optimal performance.

Insurance Companies and Car Mechanics

If you have an accident and need to put in a claim with your insurance company, a certified service department will save you a world of headaches. All major insurance companies have an approved list of certified auto shops. By using one, your insurance company will work directly with the certified service department to determine what repairs are needed. If you use an unapproved mechanic, you’ll be sent a check for repairs but will be left to deal with the details – and any potential issues that arise – yourself. Let us take the brunt of the work and ensure your repairs are done correctly, to protect your investment.
