Independent Shops Vs. Certified Honda Service

You brought home a beautiful new Honda Accord or perhaps a Honda Odyssey and now it is time for its first maintenance visit. You could bring it to the independent repair shop in your neighborhood or you could opt for Certified Honda Service by McGrath Honda located right here in Elgin, IL. What kind of differences can you expect to find in the different types of shops?

ASE Certified Technicians

When you bring your vehicle into a Certified Honda Service Center, every technician that touches the car will have undergone extensive training and hold certifications to repair your specific make and model. They have instant access to all the latest repair memos issued by the factory and the right tools to tackle every possible repair or standard maintenance task. A small independent shop may not have ASE certified technicians doing the work, and they may not be up to date on the latest news.

Honda Genuine OEM Parts

What brand of parts will your independent shop use to fix your family minivan? No-name brands may save you a few dollars up front, but they are not always manufactured to the specs provided by Honda for their authorized parts. At a Certified Honda Service location, every job conducted on your car will use factory-authorized fluids and OEM parts ready to maintain the safety and integrity of your mobile investment.

The Convenience Of A Certified Service Department

You might think that the guy with the garage around the corner from your home is more convenient when coordinating repairs. However, they may head home before 5 PM or are closed all weekend long, when you really have the time to drop off your ride and pick it up again. Your local Certified Honda Service center near West Dundee and Carpentersville is able to provide more convenient hours, free shuttle service, loaner vehicles, and a comfortable customer lounge with warm cookies. Your independent shop is more likely going to leave you the task of getting to your next appointment or finding a snack while you wait.

Choose McGrath Honda of Elgin

The next time that the engine light comes on, or your Honda is due for its next routine maintenance, you can decide to schedule service with the dependable and qualified experts using OEM parts offered by the Service Department at McGrath Honda, or choose to roll the dice with a small independent shop. Certified Honda Service provides the peace of mind, dependable performance, and convenience of your busy life needs.
