Advantages of Servicing Your Vehicle at Bates Nissan

Bates Nissan – Service Page – Advantages of Servicing Your Vehicle at a Dealership

Part of being a responsible car owner is picking the best place to service your vehicle. With many decisions out there, it can be difficult to pick the right one. But we’re here to help! Servicing your car at a dealership has tons of advantages over choosing your local garage.



Your local garage likely has technicians with plenty of expertise. But what they won’t have are technicians with specialized expertise. Every service technician at Bates Nissan is trained specifically on Nissans, so they’ll know your vehicle inside and out. Their specific Nissan expertise can be helpful in diagnosing problems or just knowing how to work with your individual car.



If you’re getting a part worked on that’s under a warranty, you’ll want to go to your dealership for service! Going to the dealership means that you’ll get the benefit of the warranty. If you were to go to your local garage, you won’t be able to take advantage of your warranty.



If you take your car to the dealership, they’ll keep a strict history of your car. This is especially true if you go to the dealership where you bought or leased your car from. Having you in the system means that they will send you service reminders and know who you are and your car’s history every time you take it in for work.

OEM Parts


Going to a local garage might get you more economical options for replacement parts, but economical doesn’t always mean quality. At a dealership, any parts that need replacing will be OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts, which means that they’re parts built specifically for your car. Putting Nissan parts in a Nissan car works out much better than putting aftermarket parts in your Nissan!

If you’re ready to say “yes” to servicing your car at a dealership, call Bates Nissan today to make an appointment.
