Why Use a Mercedes Repair Service

Mercedes Servicing or an Independent Garage?

When you purchase a Mercedes-Benz, there is often the assumption that you need to use a Mercedes repair service. As you know, every new car comes with a manufacturer’s warranty, and many people think that if they have their car serviced by an independent garage, it can invalidate the warranty. Which is not true.

While it is true that most warranty repairs can only be performed by an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer, having routine service and maintenance work done elsewhere is not often an issue. So, with this in mind, does it make sense to use main dealers or independent garages?

Pros and cons of Mercedes servicing

If you take your new Mercedes Benz to a main dealer for servicing, you can be sure of certain things. At the very least, all the parts used will be genuine manufacturer ones, the technicians who service your car are trained to Mercedes-Benz standards, and you will get your online service records updated via Digital Service Book.

It is a common misconception that the value of a car with a Mercedes-Benz service history is more than one without. This could be true if the services were performed by an anonymous garage; however, when the services were performed by a recognized specialist, it negates this.

Pros and cons of independent servicing

Independent garages are often used by new Mercedes-Benz owners for several reasons. The obvious one being their prices are significantly lower than those of the main dealership. Ones that specialize in Mercedes cars can also carry out their work to a high standard that sometimes exceeds those provided by dealership repair centers.
