If you have a European model vehicle, you already know that they are very different than your average car. Models such as Mercedes Benz, BMW, VW, Audi, Porsche and Mini Cooper require mechanics and technicians with years of experience.

An important part of keeping your car healthy is scheduling regular European vehicle maintenance dates. Doing so will enable your car to run at its best performance.

Here’s a little tip about European car repairs and service: Taking your car to the dealership is going to cost a fortune and can take long periods to complete repairs. Instead, go to a local shop that specializes in European car service like German Auto Center. We strive to get you on the road faster and take the time to get to know you and your vehicle.

Before choosing a mechanic for your car, make sure they’re certified by the Better Business Bureau. Also make sure that they have factory diagnostic equipment that is geared towards your type of vehicle.

If you live in the Austin, Texas area, an important thing to keep in mind about your car is that our environment is harsher than the environment in Germany. Our extensive heat will eventually take its toll on your car. Make sure that you schedule regular maintenance to ensure all of the delicate plastic pieces and components are holding up from the elements.

If you have additional questions about your car or the recommended maintenance, be sure to leave us a comment below or call us at (512) 452-6437. Check us out on Facebook or view more videos at our German Auto Center YouTube Channel. We are glad to help!
