Your Right to Work with an Independent Porsche Mechanic

Many people ask, “Do we have to take our Porsche to a dealership to not void the warranty?”

No, you don’t. By law, you can have your Porsche (or any other car for that matter) repaired by any Porsche technician you trust. Under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975, your car’s manufacturers can’t limit where you have any of your Porsche scheduled maintenance and repairs done while your car is still under warranty. That’s your right as a Porsche owner. And you can probably save money by not taking it to a dealership for every repair or bit of Porsche scheduled maintenance.

That being said, it’s a no-brainer that you should take your car to an auto repair garage that specializes in Porsches. These are highly specialized cars that require care you can’t get from just any Cincinnati car mechanic. You need a technician who understands Porsches, who lives and breathes them. Our maintenance garage specializes in European car repair—especially Porches. We deliver superior service to keep your Porsche running flawlessly and in its prime for as long as possible.

The truth is you’ll save a lot of money by skipping the dealership and bringing your Porsche to us. And more importantly, you’ll get higher quality care from our auto repair shop than you’ll ever get at the dealership. Our Porsche technicians aren’t trying to squeeze every dollar and cent out of you. We want your trust, respect, and your business. And we know the only way to earn that trust and keep you coming back is through top quality service. That’s why we provide the best car repair in the Cincinnati area. European cars have been our speciality since 2001. To us, repairing Porsches is an art—one we take a great deal of pride in.

Save Money is With an Independent Porsche Mechanic

You can still receive the same—or better—quality repair as what the dealership provides by working with an independent Porsche repair shop. Plus, if you go with an independent Porsche technician rather than the dealership, you can save a good deal of money on your Porsche scheduled maintenance. Dealerships are some of the most expensive repair shops on the market; it really only makes sense to take your Porsche to a dealership only when the work is covered 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. You don’t want to call just anyone up and say “Fix my Porsche.” It makes all the difference if your auto repair shop specialize in Porsches and other European cars. You’ll be getting better value for your money, and you’ll still have an expert Porsche technician. A quality independent foreign automobile repair shop will have better deals on parts and they’ll understand the special care that Porsches require, and not cost an arm or a leg in the process.

Most Common Reasons Cincinnati Asks “Fix My Porsche”

Own a Porsche Boxster? The engine has some advantages when it comes to speed and stability, but like anything else it also has its peculiar glitches. The most common reason people call us and ask for their Porsche to be fixed are leaks around the rear main seal. Early models especially suffer from this problem, though in most models it’s more of a cosmetic issue that has little effect on performance. The car can also suffer from intermediate shaft bearing failure, probably the most troubling aspect of this car’s design. It is also prone to leaks. The seal surrounding the intermediate shaft cover tends to have its dripping problems.
