Many people are under the misconception that they must go to a car dealership for routine maintenance if their car is under warranty. This is simply not the case; in fact, in almost every situation getting routine maintenance performed on your vehicle by an independent garage will not affect your warranty. This includes tire rotations, oil changes, fluid checks, new brake pads and more. Going to your neighborhood garage also comes with the added benefits of convenience and that personal touch you just won’t get at large dealership. When considering whether to take your vehicle to a local garage or to a dealership for routine maintenance, take the following into consideration.
The car battery is an essential component of your vehicle; it provides the necessary energy current to the starter motor and the ignition system to start the engine. Additionally, it supplies supplementary current when the demand is higher than the alternator can supply, acting as an electrical reservoir. Furthermore, the battery supplies power to the electronics while the engine is not running. Without a working battery, most automobiles cannot start, making the battery an integral part of a car’s machine. Surprisingly many people are unaware of the longevity of their vehicle’s battery despite the important role it plays.
The balance of power between vendors and consumers has shifted steadily since the early 20th century. After centuries of “Buy at your own risk,” it took only a few decades to transition to “The customer is always right.” Everyone knows that the customer is not actually infallible, but it is true that businesses can no longer get away with poor customer service and expect to survive in our culture. For example, in a highly competitive restaurant market, if you have a bad customer service experience at a new restaurant, you can be pretty sure that this new restaurant will not be around next year. Restaurant customers have too many options to put up with bad service.
The Better Business Bureau’s ratings were an important step toward increased transparency and accountability for businesses, but social media has given everyone a voice in the marketplace. Nowadays, if a customer has a bad experience at a place of business, all of his friends will read about it on Facebook later that day. Also, many websites like TripAdvisor and Yelp specialize in customer reviews.
So now customers have the opportunity to know before you go. In many settings, it is possible to visit a place of business virtually before going in person. When was the last time you tried a new restaurant without reading the menu online or checking the reviews? Because of the customer-driven climate of today’s marketplace, it makes sense to be wary of businesses that do not offer ready access to their customers’ feedback.
