Mechanic Working with Wrench


Have you ever wondered which is better between dealership mechanics vs. independent shops? Bring your car to the Mcconnell Chevrolet service center if your check engine light or other warning indicators are illuminated, or your vehicle needs routine service around Healdsburg. There are many reasons why Mcconnell Chevrolet believes your best bet is to bring your car to dealership mechanics vs. independent shops. Read on to learn more, and then reach out to us to make a service appointment.

Dealerships Mechanics vs. Independent Shops: Speed

If you need to get in and out of the shop quickly– and most Santa Rosa drivers do, the dealership will probably do the job faster than an independent shop. A dealership usually has extra staff on hand, which means increased capacity and less wait time. When more service bays are open and more technicians and tools are available, your job gets done right and quickly.

Dealership Mechanics vs. Independent Shops: OEM Parts

Dealerships in the Larkfield-Wikiup area are also more likely to have the OEM parts your car needs on hand, but you may have to wait for auto parts if you go to an independent mechanic. The parts center at Mcconnell Chevrolet offers an extensive inventory of Chevrolet OEM parts, and you can order parts online. Contact our parts center if you’re not sure which parts you need or how difficult it is to install them yourself. Our friendly team is always at your service!

Dealerships Mechanics vs. Independent Shops: Expertise

Dealership mechanics have trained specialists for your brand. At Mcconnell Chevrolet, our Chevrolet Certified Technicians work primarily on Chevys. They are the first to receive important updates on recalls and periodically receive new training on the most recent auto technologies. Whatever issues you experience with your Chevy, our mechanics have likely encountered it—and fixed it— many times.
