Receiving regular auto maintenance is incredibly important, however, receiving it from the right auto technician can make all the difference in the quality of the work. At Wickstrom Ford, our Ford service team is dedicated to quality maintenance, and know more about Ford models than any discount auto shop.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, it is important to address the elephant in the room, finances. Even if the quality of work at a discount auto shop is abysmal, sometimes these shops can offer prices that are near impossible to beat. Auto maintenance is expensive, and some drivers find it hard to justify spending more for better work. That said, going to a discount auto repair shop could put you at risk for further repairs, which means even more maintenance expenses.

Why are discount auto shops a ‘not-so-great’ alternative? Well, for one, discount auto shops may have their share of skilled technicians but their skills are often broad; a jack of all trades, but a master of none. A dealership’s maintenance department will be experienced with every make, model, and year on their lot, letting you benefit from their expertise.

Another thing to keep in mind is that these discount auto shops may not be equipped to handle your vehicle. Take oil changes, for instance. Some vehicles have a different layout when it comes to motor oil hardware, and in some cases require different types of equipment to get the job done. By going to our dealership for vehicle service you can ensure that your vehicle gets the kind of high-quality specialized treatment that it deserves.

If you’re looking for a Ford Barrington service team with a reputation for high-quality maintenance, Wickstrom Ford ought to be your top pick. We’ll go above and beyond to ensure that your vehicle leaves our dealership lot running better than ever.
