Should I have my car serviced with the dealer or somewhere else?

Regular service on your vehicle is important to its maintenance. Although you are probably already aware that servicing your vehicle is important, did you know there's a difference between servicing at a dealership versus an independent mechanic? Although you may like your local mechanics, they may not know your vehicle like we do. Keep reading to find out why it's better to have your car serviced at the dealership instead of with an independent mechanic.

Benefits to Having Your Vehicle Serviced at the Dealership

Expert Technicians

Our technicians specialize in your vehicle's manufacturer. We know exactly what's needed for your car and won't have to play guessing games to determine what's wrong. Our technicians are specially-trained to work on your brand of vehicle, making them the ideal people to be under the hood of your vehicle.

OEM Parts

Genuine manufacturer parts are the best fit for your vehicle, as they are made specifically for the brand. Our dealership has access to those parts, and our mechanics have the know-how to install them properly.

Honor Your Warranty

Only a Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep or Ram dealership can honor your Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep or Ram warranty. If your vehicle is still under warranty, it's important to bring your vehicle to us for services that fall under the scope of your warranty.

Proper Diagnostic Equipment

Our cutting-edge diagnostic equipment will be able to tell what's going on with your vehicle – better than someone diagnosing the problem based on the sound it's making. We continually update our equipment to make sure it's always up-to-date and includes the most recent technology.


While your vehicle is being service, you can enjoy free WiFi in our comfortable sitting room, or use our drop-off service if you have other arrangements.

Here at Cooper Motor Company, we want to make sure our customers are always taken care of. If you'd like to learn more about how a dealership can make the difference with your vehicle's service or you'd like to schedule an appointment, contact us today or stop by our dealership at 540 New River Parkway, Clinton, SC 29927. We look forward to serving our customers from Clinton, SC, and throughout Laurens and Fountain Inn!
