Bringing A Modified Car To The Dealer ~ Podcast Episode 45

Today we are going to take a look at some of the pro and cons of bringing a modified car into the dealer for work. This can be a hot issue from a technician standpoint, as well as a customer standpoint. For the most part it is not an issue. Plus we don’t see a ton of modified cars at the dealership.

Do you bring your modified car to the dealership for work?

Join me today as we break down:

  • Cool part about modified cars at the dealership
  • Well modified cars are great
  • Poorly modified cars are not so great
  • Why modified cars may be more work for the technician
  • Areas where modified cars are a problem
  • How modified cars impact labor times and work flow
  • Who pays for repairs under warranty
  • Being honest about your car mods
  • It only matters when it matters
  • and more
