It is very difficult to choose a place for servicing your car. It's one thing if your car is new (no older than 5-7 years). Here, whatever one may say, it is best to go to the service of the official dealer of the brand. Of course, for repairing a new car will take on any auto service, but only giving your machine to the hands of experienced masters of official services, you can be sure that all the work will be done at the proper level.
But it so happened that the new cars in our country - this is a very small percentage of vehicles owned by motorists. Therefore, this article is aimed more at owners of cars of the older year of release. In this case, most likely, it will be interesting to those who bought their first car, because more or less experienced car owners are familiar with the services market and know where to turn. For beginners, here are a few basic types of service stations and services:
Already described the auto service of the official dealer of your brand. To address there it is necessary only if you have a new car, which you care about very much and do not spare money for it; Large services belonging to firms are an excellent level of service, not much inferior to the first type, however, such services often work with several brands of cars. The prices for maintenance are quite high, but slightly lower than in the case of SRT official dealers. Repair in such auto services is a good solution for owners of quite expensive cars; The third type is services that belong to private entrepreneurs or small firms. In such workshops, of course, you will not find a gloss of waiting rooms and comfort of service, as in the first two, but there are small services and pluses. For example, you can independently monitor the work process. Quite low prices for both repair and spare parts in the store, which is often located in such establishments make such auto service an excellent choice for motorists with an average budget. Another plus - in small workshops rarely limit the range of services, certain brands of cars, taking almost everything for repair.
By and large, you can still highlight the fourth type of services - a private "garage", which by the quality of work often exceeds the third, and sometimes the second. If you have a good craftsman in a garage cooperative, which friends and acquaintances recommend - you can address yourself and him at your own risk.
