Your Right to Work with an Independent Porsche Mechanic

So you’ve got a warranty for your Porsche, but do you always need to rely on the dealership for every repair? Does taking it to another mechanic void the warranty? Definitely not. It is a complete myth that taking your car to any Porsche technician who is not a dealership voids the warranty. In fact, you have a right to by law.

Under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975, your car manufacturers can’t limit where you have any scheduled maintenance and repairs done that are under warranty.

Save Money with an Independent Porsche Mechanic

You can still receive the same quality repair, and sometimes even better, than what the dealership provides by working with an independent shop. Plus, you can save a good deal of money. Dealerships are some of the most expensive repair shops on the market. It only makes sense to take your Porsche to a dealership only when the work is done under warranty. Otherwise, you’re just flushing money down the drain.

Of course, you do want to work with an independent dealership that is a specialized Porsche mechanic. It makes all the difference if they specialize in Porsche and other European cars. You’ll be getting better value for your money. They’ll have better deals on parts and they’ll understand the special care that Porsches require.
