You may have noticed that every time you take your car into the shop for work, the bill is bigger than ever before. It is no wonder that so many people are looking for vehicle service contracts to gain a little peace of mind. But you may wonder why the costs of both parts and labor are on the rise. Here is the simple answer.
Cars Are as Much Tech as Mechanical Now
Local garages are struggling to keep up with the dealer as far as repairs are concerned because you need to be an electrician as much as a mechanic to work on a modern car. Every year, manufacturers are using more and more tech, perhaps in part with the idea that it will force you to come to the dealer for repairs besides the fact that drivers clamor over having every modern convenience.
So if you have transmission trouble on an old manual car, the local garage can fix it pretty easily. However, if your modern automatic transmission is struggling, it could just be the computer that is keeping track of how you drive and learning when to shift accordingly.
It all comes back to the fact that modern conveniences, even the ones you may not want, are very technical to diagnose and repair.
