When the time comes to bring your Honda in for service, should you choose an independent mechanic or go with an authorized Honda service center like Colonial Honda of Dartmouth? On this page, we will look at what each type of service center offers; we think you'll find that an authorized service center provides better quality for your money. Take a look here, and then visit us at Colonial Honda of Dartmouth, serving New Bedford and Westport, Massachusetts.
At Colonial Honda of Dartmouth, we employ Honda certified technicians. These technicians have undergone both general training and Honda-specific courses, so they know the ins and outs of your vehicle. They work on Honda models regularly, and they also keep abreast of factory bulletins and undergo regular training updates. By comparison, independent mechanics may have certain types of certification, but they generally lack Honda certification.
At the Colonial Honda of Dartmouth service center, we use OEM and Honda-approved parts and fluids. These parts have been either manufactured directly by the Honda factory or tested and approved by Honda. As a result, they live up to the exceptional quality, safety, and longevity that you have come to expect from Honda models. Most independent mechanics, by comparison, use aftermarket parts. While some aftermarket parts are similar to OEM parts in quality, others are much lower in quality. They may cut corners in manufacturing or materials in order to make parts cheaper -- and the result is a low-quality part. When you want guaranteed Honda quality, choose OEM parts at Colonial Honda of Dartmouth.
At Colonial Honda of Dartmouth, we make sure that getting service with us is comfortable, convenient, and easy. This all begins with scheduling.
