Reasons Why You Should Trust Your Local Dealership For Oil Changes

When you're looking for a place to take care of general maintenance on your vehicle like oil changes, you have no shortage of options. At Shingle Springs Subaru, we're proud to offer our customers a state-of-the-art service center where factory-trained technicians provide the very best care for Subaru models. We frequently hear sentiments about how getting your oil changed at the dealership is somehow a more expensive option. Well, we want to set the record straight. Below, we discuss five reasons why you're better off letting the dealership take care of your vehicle's basic maintenance needs. If you have any questions, please give us a call or swing by our service center in Shingle Springs, CA.

A genuine Subaru OEM oil filter provides the best filtration, fit and performance for your engine

5. OEM Products

When you trust the maintenance of your car to the dealership, you're necessarily getting OEM or otherwise factory-approved parts and products. What that means is that every fluid, filter, and part that goes on your vehicle has earned the green light from the engineers that developed your vehicle. Other mechanic shops and franchise oil change places might tell you that they offer OEM "quality," but that doesn't really mean much. So, when it comes to taking the very best care of your ride, there's never a doubt that the dealership is where you'll find it. If you enjoy the many advantages of driving a Subaru, come visit us at Shingle Springs Subaru to see just what we mean.

Our certified technicians can perform a thorough inspection and diagnostics on your car to find any hidden problems

4. Certified Technicians

For some, a couple internet videos and a socket set is all they need to feel like a mechanic. And we appreciate the weekend warriors who enjoy spending their Saturday doing an oil change on the family car. Though, for the rest of us, general car maintenance like oil changes is best left to those who do it for a living. That's where you run into a wide range of choices. Some mechanics advertise that they'll even come to you, but how do you know just what kind of service your car is getting for the money? Sure, there are some great independent mechanics out there, but to be absolutely certain that your car repair and maintenance fund is best spent, there's only one way to know for sure, and that's the dealership.

Our technicians are extensively and frequently trained by Subaru to be up on all the latest technology as well as refreshers on past models. No one knows your Subaru better, and that means you can count on expert diagnostic and repair services. Give us a call to learn more or simply swing by our service center to see the difference for yourself.

For the best quality and longevity, trust genuine OEM parts for use on your Subaru 

3. Dealership Service Is More Convenient

When you bring your Subaru to us for general maintenance and repair, you'll find a comfortable waiting area, free wi-fi connection, and more. For express service like an oil change or tire rotation, you won't have to wait long. For longer, more involved repairs and service, we offer a range of options to make your visit as convenient as possible. The folks over in our sales department are eager to introduce people to the latest Subaru models, so they let us use some of these new models as courtesy vehicles. When you schedule your next Subaru service appointment with us, ask about the many ways we can keep your day going while we take care of your ride.

2. Dealership Car Care Is Often More Affordable

Perhaps one of the biggest reasons that we hear for people not wanting to come to a dealership for their maintenance and repair is that it costs too much. We understand why people think that. There are so many ways that independent mechanics and franchise car maintenance places can cut costs. From cheaper, cut-rate parts to labor that may make little more than minimum wage, price tags can look quite different from a dealership -- at first. Unfortunately, lower cost parts tend to need replacing more frequently while uncertified mechanics can often make matters worse, not better, under the hood. That can quickly run up a price tag. It's why, in our experience, you're usually better off trusting the experts to get the job done right the first time.

1. Can You Really Trust A Dealership Service Center

In our factory-authorized service center at Shingle Springs Subaru, we understand that the reason we get to do what we love and take care of people's cars is because our customers trust us. That trust is a huge responsibility for us, and we take it seriously. We don't ever want a customer to come back with the same problem we were supposed to have solved and we'd hate to think that any of our customers haven't gotten the longest possible life from their Subaru. We're always here for you at the Shingle Springs Subaru service center, and we look forward to the chance to earn your business.
