Where do you go for help when your Ford car, truck or SUV is in need of some loving care from a mechanic? It’s a question every car owner eventually has to answer, and many people wonder whether it’s best to take their vehicle to a dealership, an independent shop or a specialist. After all, making the right choice for your car’s maintenance will save you time and money, as well as give you peace of mind.
The reality is, there are many reasons why it’s smart to work with a mechanic who specializes in Ford vehicles like the one you own. Here’s a look at some of the most important ones:
Training & Expertise
At RC Auto Specialists, all of our technicians have completed the Ford Senior Master Mechanics training, making them as skilled at working on Fords as any dealership mechanic. And we are proud to have earned the ASE Blue Seal — which means our technicians have trained and received auto repair certification through the Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, the only nationally recognized institute for car repairs. We employ only the best mechanics, support their proper training and maintain only the highest quality equipment, giving you the assurance of top-notch service every time.
An independent specialist shop such as ours uses the same tools and equipment recommended for your make and model that a dealership would. All routine maintenance and repairs are done with your specific car in mind, using the exact equipment needed for your Ford vehicle, while at a lower cost than the average dealership.
Our mechanics also use only the most reliable yet affordable replacement parts for your vehicle. Our expert knowledge of Fords gives us an edge over more general, independent auto shops in choosing the right parts, so we can help keep your car performing as efficiently as the day you drove it off the lot.
Having a mechanic who is able to diagnose your car’s problem quickly and accurately is important for the sake of your wallet and your time, as well as lengthening the life of your Ford car or truck. In the past, owners of new vehicles relied heavily on dealerships to be up-to-date on the latest diagnostic trends and have the most sophisticated diagnostic equipment. But this isn’t the case anymore. These days, because of advances made in specialty shops, seven out of ten drivers of late model vehicles trust specialists to provide the same level of diagnostic expertise a dealership can provide.
If around seventy percent of new car owners feel comfortable taking their vehicles to a specialty mechanic, especially while their car is still under warranty, it goes without saying that they’re happy with the price. In fact, the average cost of repairs at a specialty shop is fifteen percent less than that of a dealership.
Why is that? It’s simple: Fewer overhead costs exist to pass along to the customer, which is to your benefit. And because independent specialist shops rely more heavily on word-of-mouth advertising than expensive TV and radio ads, we can pass those savings along to you, as well as the promise that we work hard to earn and maintain our reputation for the best service around for your Ford vehicle.
Personal, Friendly Service
At RC Auto, we don’t just work on cars and trucks. We care about you and your needs. We know your vehicle is crucial to your life in many ways, and we are dedicated to serving you with integrity, reliability and accuracy. When you come see us, you’ll enjoy the personalized, friendly service of an independent Ford repair shop rather than the busy, depersonalized approach that often characterizes a dealership.
Our seasoned technicians specialize in maintaining and repairing Ford, Lincoln and Mercury cars and trucks. Our experience working with every make and model of Ford vehicles means that we can stand proudly behind the work we do. Because we focus on Fords, we bring a level of expertise to your repairs that most independent shops, with their generalist approach to car repair, simply can’t offer. We even handle diesel repairs with ease and accuracy.
