Blow Out

South County Nissan is having their years end tent sales blow out event.

Technology has made cars much more reliable with fewer breakdowns, repairs and scheduled maintenances. Many manufacturers offer some sort of 100, 000 mile warranty meaning that the independent will get little possibility to work on that car for any first 5-10 years it's owned. As new car sales margins have been down, VW, Chevrolet, Toyota and also other manufacturers are looking to their service departments to comprise the difference. Additionally many dealers like Porsche and Saab have been adding other value added benefits say for example loaner car while repairs are being made. Independents are now having to give courtesy rides to customers to help keep up with your dealers since customers today expect this service. Furthermore dealers such as Mercedes and Ford are generally directly offering specials on services making their dealer prices comparable to independent repair shop selling prices. But it's not just competitive pricing that's worrying the independents. The battle for skilled labor is also being won by this dealers: the dealers have usually competed for skilled labor and now have become even much more aggressive. With fewer youth entering the auto maintenance profession and opting instead for careers which include health and technology, the complete talent pool of the superior skilled auto technicians is shrinking. Increasingly it is becoming harder for independents to use and retain these highly skilled employees. As an vehicle technician, would you rather help Audi or Joe's Garage? The dealers are collecting the best 'mechanics' or as they are known today, 'technicians. ' A top end dealer technician can make $100, 000 a year with benefits while an unbiased shop owner would have to gross over a $1, 000, 000 a year to produce that and still have to pay for their own benefits together with social security. Because these economic realities many independent owners are closing their shops and planning to work for GM, Nissan and other dealers. This puts the independent auto repair center at a distinct negative aspect when diagnosing and mending difficult drivability, fuel treatment, electronic and computer related problems. Additionally, if a diagnosis is made and a component needs replacing the dealer can have it in stock, but not just verifying the diagnosis but greatly accelerating the repair time and increasing client satisfaction. Big advantage Cadillac and Mercedes. But it's just not a skilled employee war. Techs cannot fix vehicles without information and there has been a long and ongoing dispute between the dealers/manufacturers and independents across technical information access together with diagnostic tools. The manufacturers claim that their technical information is proprietary although independents claim the information should be available to anyone which owns or fixes that make of car. If the dealers had to they could stop all outside repairs on the vehicles but the problem is there are not more than enough dealerships to service all geographic areas, especially more compact towns and less brimming areas. So the manufacturer/dealer gives you some information but only a few, often charging the independent repair shops for this purpose information. Not only does the independent have to buy some parts in the dealer, but also most of the technical information as well. Big advantage Honda together with Dodge. Some independent owners just watch their business steadily decline over time as they go out of business.
