Do you have to return to the dealer to maintain your new car? NO!

Do you have to return to the dealer to maintain your new car? NO!

Did you know that it an absolute myth that you have to return to the dealer for maintenance? If you own a new car, having an independent repair shop perform maintenance services for you will not void your warranty.  Under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act which is also enforced by the Fair Trade Commission (FTC), consumers are protected against the manufacturer voiding their new car warranty if a non dealer service facility performs maintenance services on their vehicle. This act protects consumers from having to go to the dealer for services such as tire changes, oil changes, fluids checks, belt replacements and brake services. It is illegal for dealers to void or deny warranty claims due to having service performed outside of the dealer network. This is great news for any interested parties or current M-Spec Performance clients. If you like our service and how we treat our clients like family then you can continue to use us for all of your servicing needs for anything not covered ... read more

We are keeping it GREEN with our Digital Inspections!

We are keeping it GREEN with our Digital Inspections!

  Believe it or not a auto repair shop can go through a lot of paper a year. The conventional workflow process for a client vehicle is multiple sheets of paper getting printed. These papers normally called work orders contain all the pertainant information of the client, what the vehicle concerns are, and what work is to be performed. One copy is made for the technician and one copy is made for the counter man. Generally this paper gets updated and reprinted every time there is new information to be added and the client authorizes further service. This can add up to up to 10-15 sheets per car. If your average shop sees 40-50 cars a week that means an ordinary week can use up to 400 sheets up paper minimally! We here at M-Spec Performance have implemented a system called Mobile Manager. This tablet and cloud based technology allows us to minimize the amount of paper we need to use on a day to day basis. All of our highly trained technicians have a tablet. All the work orders are s ... read more

Diary of the EVAP system - BMW E92 335i

Diary of the EVAP system - BMW E92 335i

  Have you ever gotten the dreaded "check engine" or "service engine soon" light on? Your anxiety level goes up and you start to sweat. You start thinking to yourself, "what now! What else could be going wrong with my car..."  With your worry and frustration growing you keep on driving only to realize a mile or two down the road that the car doesn't feel any different only this dang light is on! You pull into your nearest service station and you let the staff know you have an issue with your check engine light. A technician hooks up his diagnostic scanner and tells you, "Well it appears you have an evap fault code." What in the heck is an evap fault code?!?! The short answer needs a little background in what an evap system is. Every vehicle rolling out today has a federally mandated emissions system built into the vehicle. The evap system is a closed system which captures any fuel vapor within your fuel system that can potent ... read more
