Clark Auto in Blaine Services 90% Of All Extended Warranties
At Clark Automotive, we can service about 90% of all extended warranties, but if your warranty contract is dealer specific, then you’ll want to make sure to take your vehicle to a dealer. If you’re looking to replace parts on your vehicle with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts then occasionally your independent mechanic can get these parts directly from the dealer, but they will likely cost significantly more than aftermarket auto parts.
Dealer or Independent Mechanic?
While our ASE certified mechanics can help you with typical repairs at Clark Automotive, if your vehicle is still under warranty, it may make more financial sense for you to go ahead and have your vehicle serviced at your local dealer. Once your warranty has expired, it will likely be more advantageous for you to bring your car to an ASE certified independent mechanic to save a bit of money.
Manufacturer Recalls Go To The Dealer
Manufacturer recalls are best left to your dealer. Dealers are better setup to handle these repairs and are typically reimbursed directly from the vehicle manufacturers.
Top-Quality Extended Warranty Repair Parts and Labor
If you are only in need of extended warranty work, then turning to an independent auto mechanic for warranty repairs may be the more affordable solution for you. At Clark Automotive, we can fix a wide array of issues with your vehicle and potentially eliminate the need to go into the dealer directly. While you may not be aware, but a large number of extended warranties do in fact allow for independent mechanics to service many vehicles’ specific warranty needs.
If you are in need of high-quality auto repair work, look no further than Clark Automotive here in Blaine, MN. To find out if we can help address your extended warranty work, give us a call today at (763) 784-7944 or email email@example.com to learn more.
