What’s The Big Deal With Servicing European Vehicles?

In the auto repair world, there are auto mechanics that embrace working on European vehicles and other auto service shops that would prefer staying away from European vehicles. So, what’s the big deal with European vehicles?

To give a simple answer, it’s because European vehicles require special tools, special software, and special skills that are specific to certain brands. For example, if a shop advertises that it works on Jaguars and Land Rovers, it’s because they have invested in the specialized equipment to perform quality service and repairs on these two brands. Independent shops that work on BMWs require BMW tools, software, and equipment. Same goes for Mercedes, Audi, Volkswagen, Porsche, and the like.

To contrast with European vehicles, American-made and Asian vehicles tend to be more generalized when it comes to repairs. Any American brand tends to require the same parts, software, equipment, and skill sets, regardless of the make and model. The same could be said for vehicles made in Japan or South Korea. If you want to specialize in these vehicles, one suite of tools, software, and equipment will cover you for all the brands.

When Williamson’s Repair & Tire in Bondurant, Iowa opened its doors, we specialized in diesel repair. But as we have grown through the years, we have branched out to meet the growing needs of our customers. Let’s face it. You see a lot more sedans and coupes on the roads around Des Moines than you do diesel trucks.

Who can blame them? They are nice cars!

But to service these vehicles in such a way that they last for a long time, you need an auto repair shop that has a team of mechanics that have the correct skill sets, the proper tools, the right software, and other equipment that fits the needs of these European brands. Fortunately, Williamson’s Repair & Tire in Bondurant is your best option for European auto repair. Not only do we have the means to service and maintain your BMW, Mercedes, Audi, VW, Mini Cooper, and Jaguar, but we offer an exceptional customer service experience as well.
