Your car is the second biggest investment you are likely to make in your lifetime, so make sure you protect that investment. A factory certified repair will uphold your manufacturer warranties and restore the structural integrity of your vehicle. All of this is especially important if you’re leasing your vehicle, as improper repairs will be discovered upon inspection, and will be taken into account when you go to turn your car in.
