Dare to Compare: Volkswagen SouthTowne vs. Independent Service Shops

Many Volkswagen owners wonder why they shouldn’t simply take their vehicle to the nearest service center. The online reviews seem decent, the service seems okay, and maybe it’s even a little bit closer to their residence than Volkswagen SouthTowne is. There are many factors to take into account when deciding upon where your Volkswagen will be serviced, though, and it’s important to be aware of major distinctions between a certified service center such as Volkswagen SouthTowne and an independent service shop. Certified service, genuine OEM parts, service and parts specials, and amenities that make your service experience exceptional are always guaranteed when you visit our South Jordan, UT service center – local, independent shops cannot say the same.

Certified Service Protects Your Volkswagen Warranty

Especially if you’re driving a new Volkswagen with a still-current warranty, you’ll want to do everything in your power to protect that warranty from being voided. One of the ways your warranty can be voided is by having your Volkswagen serviced by an uncertified mechanic, who does subpar work that results in damage to your vehicle. Certified technicians at Volkswagen SouthTowne are not just there to look good – they’re there to protect your Volkswagen with their well-trained hands, paying extra attention to detail and utilizing knowledge about your vehicle that local, general mechanics simply won’t have.


Genuine OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket/Discount Parts

When you visit an independent, uncertified, or self-taught mechanic, they may attempt to sell you aftermarket or discount parts that aren’t designed specifically with your vehicle in mind. This is another way to void your Volkswagen warranty, but more importantly, it’s another way that can lead to unnecessary long-term damage to your Volkswagen that is preventable with genuine OEM parts. Don’t settle for anything less than genuine OEM parts when it comes to service for your Volkswagen. These parts are made specifically for your vehicle, and are designed to maintain your Volkswagen’s long-term health, and keep it performing at the peak of its powers for as long as possible.



Service Specials, Online Scheduling, and Other Amenities at SouthTowne Volkswagen

Local independent mechanics often run smaller shops that don’t have the resources to provide amenities as we do at Volkswagen SouthTowne. On top of all of our certified technicians and genuine OEM parts, we have the resources to provide our customers with complimentary Uber / Lyft services, which local garages rarely have. Complimentary multi-point inspections are easy for us to provide, while most local garages simply can’t provide these services at no charge. Service and parts specials at Volkswagen SouthTowne are always done with genuine OEM parts and certified technicians, so not only are you getting the best service for your vehicle, but you may be able to get your oil changes and brake services at discounted rates. There are many reasons to trust Volkswagen SouthTowne over independent shops, but the biggest ones to remember are certified service and genuine OEM parts – they’re the benefits that take your vehicle the extra mile.
