Whether you have a new car that needs service or an older model in need of repair, taking your car to the dealership can mean spending an obscene amount of money. This is usually due to the labor rates at dealerships. There are several factors that come in to play when determining labor rates.
The first and foremost is quality service. Many people see dealerships as more qualified than independent auto repair shops. While in some cases this may be true, it’s not always the case. One of the top reasons dealership labor rates are usually higher is because of the knowledge of their mechanics.
Location is also a big factor when labor rates are concerned. If a dealership or auto shop is in the middle of the city, chances are their labor rates will be higher.
The truth is that it gets harder and harder to find good quality auto shops with reasonable labor rates. If you find an auto repair shop that provides you with quality service at a reasonable price you should stick with that shop for life.
At Dynamic Car Service we pride ourselves in being one of those shops. With all of our mechanics being ASE Certified, we guarantee our knowledge and experience. Also, by being located in Recoleta St. right off San Pedro, we are basically 15 minutes away from most of San Antonio.
The next time your car needs servicing or repair, stop by or call for an appointment. You won’t regret it. Also, if you have a quote from a dealership, bring it in and we will lower the labor cost while still providing you with the quality service you deserve.
