Thanks For The Kind Words
“Your company is excellent as is the work you do and you are never too busy to answer questions. I have complete faith in you.
When my air conditioning was not working you actually called GM regarding my car to see if my warranty would cover the repairs. The answer was yes so you advised me to have the repairs performed at the dealers so there would be no charge to me.
What I feel has benefited me most are the bumper to bumper inspections. I had one just prior to my three year warranty expiring and one before the powertrain warranty expired. Both times the work that needed doing saved me more money than the cost of the inspections.”

Thanks For The Kind Words

“Thanks once again for suggesting I have you perform a bumper to bumper inspection before my warranty expired on my Cavalier.
When my first warranty expired you saved me about $1,000 as you determined I needed a new air compressor and also one of the rear strut mounts had to be replaced.
This last inspection, before my warranty expired saved me a minimum $600. I had the water pump replaced plus axle seals.
So I would say to your customers who still have warranties on their vehicles to have you perform the bumper to bumper inspections.
Once again Jim, thank you so much.”

Jim Dickinson Auto Tech has been performing pre-warranty expiry car inspections for over 27 years.  Take advantage of your manufacturers warranty before it expires.
You paid for it with your vehicle purchase.  New car dealers wait for you to complain about defects or problems  before attempting to rectify vehicle deficiencies during the warranty.  The vehicle manufacturer wants dealers  to respond to complaints but not to volunteer to fix problems.  The dealer technicians get paid a lower rate of pay to  repair vehicles  under warranty,  often 30 % less so they are not intereseted in your problems until the vehicle is off warranty.   They are also not trained to access a vehicles true condition but to react to customeer complaints.

Most people do not have the expertize to evaluate their vehicles condition and often are unaware of problems until they are major ones . This makes it virtually impossible for the average consumer to take full advantage of their warranty without expert advice.

We follow  a set routine with a 400 point check list that has evolved over time to ensure all components are checked properly. You are supplied with a copy of your vehicles inspection and a list  of defects that you can now complain about at the local dealer.   Having the manufacturer rectify problems before the vehicle comes off warranty can save you thousands of dollars and a lot of heartache.
