Just wondering.

After your warranty expires, do you go to the dealer for service or have you found a good mechanic you really trust to work on your car?

before you ever think about either.
You can do all your own services,just as well,For 1/5 the cost or less.
You can run your own diagnostics,you can service your own engine,you can reset your own FSS.
Buy parts for 1/3 to 1/2 and less:) than dealer prices and install them yourself.
One member was recently quoted $1300 for spark plug change and new MAF.
When he gets done following some of the instructions I send him and following the diy,he will be done with both jobs for under $250 tools, parts,and all:thumbsup:
You do the math;)

For the RARE occasion I can't do the service/repair I rely on my favorite INDY. (and I do mean rare. On my last 4 vehicles almost 500K miles, 3GM & 1 Honda, there were 4 occasions when I couldn't do the work, 2 on the GM, 2 on the Honda). I've done all the work on my 420.
