Where to go for service?
It makes good sense to take your vehicle to your local Car dealer for service. Technicians are well-trained specialists. And they are receiving the latest service information through technical bulletins, service tips, and in-dealership training programs. They learn to work on Car before they work on your vehicle, rather than while they are working on it. Doesn't that seem like the best way?
