Most people at all interested in frugal living know that they will pay more for routine maintenance on their vehicles if they go to the dealership. With that being said, many people like to stay on top of factory recalls from manufacturers and this is often the reason so many continue to get their oil changes and other simple servicing done at the dealership.
But, when you can easily hop online and learn about manufacturers’ recalls from a number of reputable sites, why not save your money and opt to take your vehicle to a less expensive local mechanic? The government’s site ‘Safer Car’ is a great place to start.
