It may sound basic, but before choosing a service facility, get recommendations from other people who drive the same model car as you. What’s that, you don’t know anyone else who drives an Avanti? No problem. Thanks to the net, car owners clubs are now closer than ever. What does this mean to you? It means that most clubs have message boards for exchange of information, even for you Avanti Owners. Often that information includes cheers and jeers for car dealerships. Now remember, this is the virtual world, so sometimes you need to take some of the advice given with a grain of salt but usually people will steer you in the right direction. If others have had good experiences, chances are that you will too. The added benefit is that there are dealerships who actually support their owner’s clubs and offer discounts for club members.
Oh yes, if you find many complaints online regarding a certain dealer, it’s probably a wise move to stay away.
