No, this is not the next Marvel super hero movie. It is the choice that you have when you need your vehicle maintained. Do you go to the dealership or to one of the area’s top mechanics? Generally speaking, independent mechanics love dealerships. Why, because dealers' stiff rates and by-the-book approach can drive customers straight to a local independent specialist.
Dealerships can add hours of labor to a job that may take the local shop less time to accomplish. One independent put it this way…”we have not sold out our imagination”. Dealer vs. mechanic can be a bit of a dilemma for you. One benchmark that you can follow is that if your car is no longer under warranty, trust the local mechanic.
One of Raleigh’s best local auto mechanics is Jim’s Auto Service. Jim Liacos learned his trade on all types of vehicles. He truly is one of our area’s top shade tree mechanics. Weigh the differences between dealership and independent…especially time and cost. Call Jim or drive in to his shop located at 3711 Tarheel Drive. You can always call ahead at (919) 824-4566.
