When it comes to providing the best possible care for your new or pre-owned Chevrolet, you have essentially two choices. You can take it to your local Chevy dealer or you can take it to one of the many third party garages in the greater Daytona Beach area. While both of these shops are capable of providing you with a wide range of services for your car, only one of them offers the level of service required to keep your car running like new for as long as you own it. There are a number of very valid reasons to choose New Smyrna Express Service over the local independent garages.
Factory Trained Technicians
To be sure the average independent shop in and around Port Orange and Daytona Beach has a team of trained and certified technicians on hand. However, despite this fact, very few of them have undergone the rigorous factory training our technicians go through during their careers. Independent technicians tend to have a good basic knowledge covering practically every vehicle on the road and rely on manuals for the rest of the details.
Our technicians are factory trained and certified on the entire Chevrolet lineup, making them specialists who understand your vehicle from bumper to bumper. This ensures your Chevy will always get nothing less than the best when it comes to service work.
OEM or Original Equipment Manufacturer parts are the only parts we use in our service department to service and repair your Chevrolet vehicle. Whether it is a simple oil filter or the parts needed to completely overhaul your engine, we always use GM original parts and fluids. These parts are built to the exact same standards as those used to build your Chevrolet vehicle.
Many people are under the impression that genuine GM parts cost more than aftermarket parts, this is not always the case. In fact many are the same price, some are less. If you choose to use aftermarket parts, you could easily end up in a dispute over who is supposed to cover warranty replacement in the event of failure while your vehicle is still under its original warranty. As long as the repairs are completed using OEM parts, there should never be any dispute.
Cost of Repairs
Many people are under the mistaken impression that they are going to save money by taking the Chevrolet to a third party garage for repairs. Certainly many of the independent garages have lower hourly rates. This is because they tend to have lower overhead costs. If however, they use the official repair time guides, their final repair times should be very close to those of your local dealership. The only real difference you are likely to see is in the final cost, which as you may or may not have noticed will be approximately the same.
Dedicated Technicians and Technology
Every car manufacturer has its own technology when it comes to testing and diagnostics. These tools are required in order to perform the most accurate diagnosis in the shortest amount of time. This equipment is typically quite expensive and requires extensive training to operate. Most third party garages cannot afford to buy such specialized equipment, nor are their technicians trained to use it. Although many independent technicians can ultimately arrive at the appropriate diagnosis, without the right equipment it often takes far longer than it should and ends up costing you more money.
No Warranty Work
There is only one place you can take your Chevrolet vehicle for any type of warranty work and that is your dealership. While any Chevrolet or GM dealership can perform warranty work and replace broken or worn parts with genuine GM parts, no third party garage is permitted to do so. This role is reserved specifically for factory authorized dealers to ensure the repairs are done correctly, using genuine parts, and in such a manner as to meet the standards established by the manufacturer.
As you can see there are many different reasons to bring your new or pre-owned Chevrolet vehicle to New Smyrna Express Service for routine maintenance and all of your repair work. Our factory trained technicians and parts experts will keep your car in optimum running condition for as long as you own it.
