Dealership Mechanics vs. Independent Shops

Have a blinking engine or indicator light? Need an oil change or some other regular service? You may be asking yourself whether you should go to a dealership mechanic or independent shop in San Jose. Both options have their benefits, but here at the Victory Honda of Morgan Hill service center we strongly believe that a dealership mechanic is the better choice. Read on to find out why, and contact us if you have any questions.




Dealerships Mechanics vs. Independent Shops: Service Speed

Dealerships have extra staff and usually more service bays than independent shops. This means your car gets worked on sooner and you wait for a lot less time. At an independent shop in Sunnyvale, you may be at the back of a long line of vehicles all waiting for service.


Dealership Mechanics vs. Independent Shops: Quality OEM Parts

OEM parts are parts that were built by the manufacturer specifically for your vehicle. They fit perfectly, and are of the highest quality. Since independent shops work on so many different kinds of vehicles, they’ll likely have to order OEM parts if you want them, otherwise they’ll likely use used or generic parts. At a dealership like Victory Honda of Morgan Hill, our mechanics are more likely to have the OEM parts you need on hand. In fact, you can even order them yourself


Dealerships Mechanics vs. Independent Shops: Professional Service

Dealership mechanics at Victory Honda of Morgan Hill specialize in Honda vehicles. Our technicians are factory trained, are the first to receive critical updates on Honda vehicles, and typically only work on one make of vehicle. This means that if there’s an issue with your car, they’ve almost definitely seen it, and fixed it, before. An independent mechanic in Watsonville may have never worked with your make and model before, and fixing your car could be a learning experience for them. 


You Can Trust Victory Honda of Morgan Hill For Your Service

You can see why we think dealership mechanics can’t be beat. Whenever you need service for your vehicle, you can easily schedule service with us in Morgan Hill. Our technicians will take care of you and your vehicle. Be sure to check our service specials before you visit to see if there are any deals you can take advantage of.
