So if I have warranty, I should be going to a dealership? And outside of the warranty go somewhere else?Just like independent shops, dealerships range from first rate to stealerships.
I go to the dealer during the bumper-to-bumper period (1 more year on our Mazda) and if necessary for warranty work on the power train (3 more years). Beyond that, I would rarely service a vehicle at dealerships. We have been satisfied with one of Kal Tire franchises near us for the past 10 years. They've got a pretty good reputation, at least in their 'home region' of the Okanagan Valley
