Top 3 Benefits to Have Your Vehicle Serviced by Experts at Southside Dodge


Modern automobiles are more reliable than ever before. However, that doesn’t mean owners can skip things like oil changes, filter replacements, and tire rotations for the entire time they plan to drive that car. Maintenance is always going to be required and finding a maintenance team you can trust is more crucial than ever. Everyone at the Southside Dodge Service Department has worked very hard to build that trust with our customers and community. However, we still have people who ask us if getting car maintenance at a dealership like ours is worth it. Let’s take a look at a few reasons why we should be your first and last call for scheduled maintenance and unscheduled repairs.

In a time that seems like several lifetimes ago, taking your car to a local corner garage was a great idea. However, modern vehicles are almost nothing like their predecessors. Sure, internal combustion engines haven’t fundamentally changed in 100 years. However, those same engines are now attached to cutting-edge computer systems – requiring specialized care and maintenance. Here are a few reasons why where you take your vehicle for service and repair matters a lot.


1. Technical Training Standards


The team of service technicians working at the Southside Dodge Service Department are specialists in all things mechanical and otherwise for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram cars, trucks, minivans and SUVs. Our team is also continuously trained on the latest technical repairs and methods for service and repair. Additionally, if a vehicle has an open recall or technical service bulletin, our team will have been instructed on how to repair that issue as quickly and safely as possible.


2. Advanced Tools


Building on the previous idea of having high technical standards, dealership-based service departments, like the one at Southside Dodge, will also be equipped with the latest tools to work on the advanced technology in today’s automobiles. Furthermore, our team will be properly trained on how to use these tools to diagnose and repair complex problems.


3. Genuine Original Equipment Parts


Earlier we alluded to the complexity of modern automobiles. The increase in the use of complex computer systems in cars has accounted for a lot of improvements, notably, reliability. However, the trade-off is that vehicle owners need to make sure they use original equipment manufacturer parts and components when they have service and repairs completed on their vehicle. Sure, there are shops that can do some work cheaper. But, that will also almost certainly mean they are using aftermarket parts, which could lead to a vehicle’s warranty being voided.
