Certified Honda Service vs Independent Shops

Dare to Compare: Independents vs Certified Honda Service

Before receiving vehicle service from us at Scott Robinson Honda, you may wonder what you can expect from our service department vs independent service shops in the area. We’ve decided to take the guesswork out for you and provide that comparison for you for the service shops sprinkled around Torrance, Redondo Beach, Carson, Gardena, and Long Beach. By lining up their service features with ours, anyone can easily determine that what we offer is of a higher quality and extends much more value than will be collected with service at an independent shop. When you want your Honda to receive the best care near Torrance, CA, we invite you to get what you deserve from us at Scott Robinson Honda.

What Does Certified Honda Service Mean?

Certified service means that the service features and results meet Honda’s strict standards as a world-renowned automotive manufacturer. Because we are held to a higher standard, it is easy for us to offer higher quality services. You will find that certified Honda services generally include a state-of-the-art facility with high-tech equipment matching the high-tech nature of your vehicle. You’ll also find services performed by certified technicians, installation of genuine OEM parts, and technical services performed according to Honda’s technical service bulletins.


Our Certified Technicians vs Independents’ Mechanics

While our certified technicians and their mechanics probably share the same love for servicing vehicles, that is where the similarities end and the differences begin. Certified technicians can prove their experience, skill, and aptitude by passing the certification process. As you might expect, better trained and higher-skilled certified technicians are far less likely to make mistakes and tend to work with service bulletins as mechanics are left shooting from the hip based on their unknown experience and unproven skill.

Genuine Honda OEM Parts vs Aftermarkets

As we install the highest quality genuine OEM parts at the same quality as the originals, independents tend to cut corners by installing aftermarket parts of unknown quality that never come with a warranty and can even void existing warranties. Genuine OEM parts come with a guaranteed fit, will perform as expected; and if they do not, they come backed by a warranty that will take care of it.

Value-Added Amenities

If quality is not enough to prove our point, look no further than our value-added amenities not found at independent service shops. We offer complimentary multi-point inspections, rental cars, courtesy transportation shuttles to adjacent areas, Free Wi-Fi, business workstations, online service scheduling, and a comfortable waiting area not commonly found at independent shops near Torrance, CA.
