Dealer Maintenance Only?
My wife and I want to buy a wagon. We have been looking around and neither of use has ever had a new car. We finally have the money and so we would like to get something nice. We have been looking at Volkswagen, Audi and Volvo over all of the others although we have seen others that we liked as well. First of all, are there some wagon owners out there that think we should change our minds about getting a wagon or which ones we are looking at? And my real question, we have heard that some luxury vehicles are required to be serviced at dealers only for things as small as an oil change. We like being able to go to our local Oil Can Henry's because it's quick, convenient and doesn't cost a fortune plus we can find one almost anywhere we go. We are concerned with this and really would probably vote against getting a car where the oilk could only be changed by the dealership or one of thos indepedent mechanics that spcializes say in Volvo or Audi. It's too inconveneint and too costly. So, my question I guess is, can you take a Volvo or an Audi or whatever to an Oil Can Henry's or Minit Tune or Midas or can they only be taken to the dealership or specialized mechanic? Don't get me wrong about other services, I like using the authorized shops for that stuff because their so familiar with the cars but when it comes to an oil change, something we have to do about every three weeks because of our commute, we need convenience.
