How Do I Know Who To Trust?
Cars are expensive, and luxury vehicles? Forget it. Those are some of the priciest vehicles on the market to date. So, when something starts going wrong, or dashboard lights start blinking, or your luxury vehicle breaks down on the side of the road, stress levels can blow through the roof. How much money is that pothole going to cost? Is the tow truck going to get your Porsche to a reputable mechanic? Where do you even begin to figure that stuff out?
Don’t worry, we’ve got your back. Below are three main things to look for when searching for a reputable Porsche mechanic.
MAKE SURE YOUR MECHANIC KNOWS YOUR VEHICLE
While many auto repair shops will include Porsche among their foreign repair specialties, it isn’t enough just to list it for potential business. If you’re going to shell out that kind of money to buy this specific kind of vehicle, then make sure you put its life in proper hands. Porsche-certified technicians are who you need to be searching for, and here at Eurofed Automotive, we have just that. Our ASE-certified experts are specially trained in Porsche maintenance and have access to up-to-date factory requirements and recalls. We can diagnose any issue with your vehicle with our state-of-the-art equipment, no matter the make and model, so you can rest assured that your Porsche is in good hands with us. From complete maintenancing on a regular schedule all the way down to precise engine repairs according to factory standards, we’ve got your peace of mind right here in our auto repair shop.
DOES THE MECHANIC USE PORSCHE-CERTIFIED PARTS?
A vehicle like a sleek, state-of-the-art Porsche requires specific parts that are approved for Porsche use only. Talk about luxury, am I right? These types of vehicles can be high-maintenance, so you want to make sure that the shop you’re researching utilizes the required parts. From as complex as a 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster with GTS trim that requires certain replacement coolant lines all the way down to a 2021 Porsche Taycan with a Turbo S trim that requires specialized parts for its turbocharger, only a mechanic with access to these specific parts will understand how delicate a Porsche is to handle when it comes to maintenance. Don’t skip on the certifications. A Porsche is a precise machine with top engineering specs running through its veins. Make sure your mechanic has access to these kinds of parts, because if you settle for aftermarket, or otherwise generic, parts? You may be looking at more maintenance money in the long-run as these weaker parts tend to fail more often.
WATCH YOUR WARRANTY
Porsches come with some of the best warranties out there when it comes to vehicle purchasing. However, this one goes hand-in-hand with the aforementioned bullet point. With the luxury vehicle brand backing its highly-engineered workmanship with warranties that could make any larger power smile, it’s imperative to make sure that any work your mechanic does doesn’t void the warranty. That is why utilizing Porsche-specific parts is so important. One wrong part–one misstep–and that entire warranty goes flying out the window. Factory specifications are strict on this type of vehicle for a reason, so in order to maximize the life of your vehicle, and retain its resale value, be picky about the parts that get put in your car. When all is said and done, that warranty will save you a lot of heartache. So, make sure your mechanic doesn’t rip away that peace of mind.
