Before you consider where to take your vehicle for maintenance and repair, you need to understand the difference between the two. Routine maintenance items are those listed in your vehicle's owner's manual as part of the model's service schedule. They are intended to keep your vehicle in top operating condition. Repairs are service that needs to be performed to fix a problem. Where you take your vehicle may depend on what needs to be done.
Scheduled maintenance can be performed at any dealership; you don't have to go to the one where you bought the vehicle. Likewise, you can take your vehicle to an independent mechanic at auto-repair shop (Hogans Automotive Services), which are typically less expensive than dealerships. Plus you don't have the cost of gas driving into town, we are local, it makes sense to support local businesses. Federal law gives you the right to service your vehicle wherever you like without affecting your warranty coverage.
Areas serviced: Ingonish, Neils Harbour, White Point, Smelt Brook, South Harbour, Cape North, Dingwall, Aspy Bay, Sugar Loaf, Bay st Lawrence, Meat Cove, Cabot Trail, North Of Smokey.

The vast majority of modern vehicles are more computerized than ever
before, and truth be told, that’s a good thing. In fact, this

malfunctions before they become truly dangerous.
