Car Repair for Luxury Vehicles

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

Just as you would not take your poodle to a groomer that specializes in shearing sheep, you do not want to take your luxury vehicle to a shop that doesn’t specifically handle your kind of automobile. It is not about being snobbish or stuck-up. It has nothing to do with a particular shop not being good enough.

Most car repair and auto body shops have a specialty vehicle that they are capable of servicing the best. Some general auto body shops have the capability of doing minor repairs on many different kinds of vehicles, not specializing in any particular vehicle. This kind of shop is great for oil changes, filter replacements and very general repairs.

However if you have more critical repairs necessary, like those to the engine, water pump, timing belt, or actual body of the vehicle, you will want to go to a car repair shop specializing in vehicles like yours. They will be better equipped to handle your vehicle, will have the proper tools for repairs, and will be likely more capable of the kind of service a luxury vehicle deserves.

First of all, some luxury vehicles require specific handling. They may have different sized undercarriages, more fragile interiors or other makeup that require specific handling. It is safe to say that you want a mechanic to extra cautious when servicing a vehicle that costs as much as yours.

Some European and Japanese made vehicles have specific tools that are required to maintain or service the engines. Parts and pieces do not use the typical universal tools that most American domestic automobiles use. So, the mechanics have to acquire and learn to use more specialized tools for these different engines. Often a mechanic will tell you if they are even capable of working on your vehicle before making an estimate.

There is an unspoken rule among luxury car owners that you should be treated with respect because of the nature of your vehicle. There is definite truth to this statement. When you are the owner of an expensive, specialized, high performance vehicle, you expect the mechanics that work on it to respect the very nature of the automobile.

Car repair on luxury vehicles should be in a class of its own, offering topnotch service that treats the owner with the respect they deserve. You deserve to be treated like family. Often mechanics running a respected high performance automobile maintenance shop own a high performance vehicle themselves. So they will immediately be able to make you feel at home.

Luxury vehicles are special. They require specialized care and you should expect to have only the best, most qualified professionals working on your high performance automobile. General car repair can be done in many different shops. Luxury vehicle maintenance should be done by a shop specializing in your car’s specific make and model.
