Q: How can I find out if my current dealer has an exemplary service record?
A:
( Expert Gayle Clark Motor City Sales and Service, L.L.C ) I recommend you check the service history of the business in question at your local consumer organization, in some cases you may even be able to ask the shop for a names of a few customers and call. You can really get some good information this way.

Q: How can I find the best body shop for repairs?
A: ( Expert Gayle Clark Motor City Sales and Service, L.L.C ) I recommend you shop around for good and reputable collision and repair shops before you should ever need them, ask friends and family members for their suggestions also, good word-of-mouth advertising still goes along way.

Q: Do you recommend using the synthetic oil or traditional?
A: ( Expert Gayle Clark Motor City Sales and Service, L.L.C ) I recommend for new cars, that you follow your vehicle manual directives to determine which oil is best for your vehicle; in most cases you must follow the directives to keep your warranty valid.

However, in most cases Synthetic Oil is more expensive than the traditional all-season oils, but it burns more efficiently. Basically this means instead of the traditional 3,000 mile or every three months schedule, you can stretch this time frame a little longer to 4,000 miles or every four months.
