European Car Repair HeadlightAt Brookside “66” Service, we specialize in European Car Repair at affordable prices. When you drive a European car, finding a service center that can perform repairs can often be a challenge. There simply might not be a repair shop nearby that services your vehicle.  What do you do? Panic? Set aside an entire day to travel to have a repair performed. Major issue could leave you without a car for days or even weeks.

Who do you turn to for precise European car repair? For years , owners have trusted their European car repair services to Brookside “66” Service.

Here are some facts to help you decide the best route to take.

Parts:

Most European dealerships have the benefit  of having genuine OEM parts in stock. However the prices are usually very expensive.  An independent European car repair shop is able to obtain the necessary OEM parts for a far less expensive price whereas many dealerships charge you a premium price for the parts because they are readily available.

Experienced Technicians:

Contrary to popular opinion, a dealership does not equate to quality service. In many instances, a specialty European car repair shop will have more experienced technicians on staff. This means you as the customer will receive a higher quality mechanic at half the cost of the dealership. Many of the independent specialty shops are able to locate problem with pinpoint accuracy. If a repair is needed, the car owner can expect their vehicle to fixed with a high degree of workmanship.

Customer Service:

Many European car owners complain about the customer service at the dealerships. Not only have they experienced long waiting periods, many dealerships treat the customer like a stranger.  An independent shop are usually much more personalized. The specialty shop takes the time to keep the customer updated on every step of the repair process. The independent shop is far less likely to charge the customer excessive fees for a service that is not needed. Their goal is to earn your continued and repeat business.

Clearly, specialty European automotive shops offer far more advantages to the customer than the dealership. Brookside “66” Service is one of the top automotive repair shops in the Kansas City area that specializes in the care of European vehicles.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact Brookside “66” Service at your earliest convenience and schedule a visit.

If you are a European car owner, it is of the utmost importance that you have your vehicle serviced and repaired by a highly trained technician. While the cost of a shade tree mechanic may sound tempting, the risk of getting shoddy workmanship is not worth it in the long run. The only legitimate options are to take your vehicle to the dealership or to a local independent auto repair shop.

Every vehicle since 1996 has been equipped with an On-Board Diagnostics System that monitors engine performance.  Discrepancies in performance levels are reported through your vehicle’s computer system. Once the “ check engine” light is displayed, your next step should be to seek out an engine diagnostic service or an engine tune-up.  Engine diagnostics allow our staff to gather helpful information about the operating condition of your engine.  The most common diagnostic trouble codes are generated in response to malfunctions in the power train. Ultimately, regular engine tune-ups are necessary to optimize engine performance. A tune-up is also one of the most effective ways to prevent unexpected engine trouble. During an engine tune-up, our staff may replace the spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter and distributor cap and rotor in your vehicle. Our experts will also check emission levels, fuel lines, and belts and hoses. Engine diagnostics and regular engine tune-ups can help extent the life of your vehicle and improve the health of your engine.

A more involved service, or Euro tune-up is highly recommended at 100k miles . Unless these items have been replaced recently: spark plugs, spark plug wires, oxygen sensors, fuel filter and possibly ignition coils should be replaced. By this time they are past their normal life expectancy and not operating at peak efficiency. Gas mileage, performance emissions, reliability and driving enjoyment are all suffering.  By replacing these items you are taking a major step in getting your car back up to par and the car will thank you.  The timing belt is of great importance to your engine and keeps everything working in harmony. There are hundreds of moving parts inside your engine and these must all work together to allow the engine to work correctly. The result of the timing belt failing is a very expensive repair. This is normally recommended between 60k and 80k miles.

The “check engine” or  “service engine” light is a sure sign that your vehicle should be looked at by an expert sooner than later. Most cases the system will detect an engine issue and store the corresponding repair code which can be accessed by a member of our service staff.

Engine warning lights will help alert drivers to minor issues before they become major repairs.  Be sure to follow up with our staff once your vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostics System detects a problem with the engine.
