At Gil's Automotive Service Center we are always looking out for the safety of our community and the children in it. As Halloween is quickly approaching, we want to remind Henderson, NV drivers of some helpful tips that will have you navigating through the sea of trick-or-treaters this season safely.
I've had 2 cars over the past 6+ years serviced by Gil and his crew, and that is 3 too little (the other 3 cars are no longer with us due to the poor choice on my part NOT to bring them to him and his crew). Their service and concern to get the job done right, and explain it completely to the customer is unmatched/unrivaled; they have the OEM Guides thru a 3rd Party Service, and also have a symptom search, labor guides, parts ordering and billing all in "One" (pun intended Gil) to make things go smoothly, efficiently and without fail. I've spend $1000s in service and have found all he and his crew's work and service WORTH EVERY PENNY SPENT! They have saved me threefold from going to the dealership, while still keeping with OEM Parts (Mazda and BMW) to help with my resale values should I choose to sell them. I've read the negative reviews, and personally, they come from people who wants things on the cheap; there are cheaper alternatives, but you'll be going back religiously and not getting the right work done at the right time. Gil's Automotive Service Center gets it right, puts in an honest day's worth, and clearly explains anything and everything that has to be done, while giving ME the FREEDOM TO CHOOSE what work to be done, and when to have it done. Get it done right, get it done efficiently, get it done honestly: GET IT DONE BY GIL'S AUTOMOTIVE! - Jerry. D. (5 star review on Yelp)

There seems to be a common misconception among many that if you have an aftermarket/extended warranty, that your car, truck, SUV or Jeep must be taken to a dealership. This is not true. Non-dealership / Independent Automotive repair shops can service and repair your new or UNDER WARRANTY/EXTENDED WARRANTY. As a positive, at our shop you can get fast service and work with highly trained technicians! We'd love to take care of your vehicle for you and can do so right here at our automotive shop. Repairs by highly rated and trained automotive technicians with dealer rated diagnostic tools, at BETTER PRICING by a shop that knows you!
It is a law that independent automotive repairs shops can maintain and service your warranty. All consumers are protected by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, that is enforced by Federal Trade Commission (FTC). It prohibits a manufacturer from voiding the new vehicles warranty or a vehicles extended warranty because service was performed by a Non-Dealer/Independent Repair shop.
Per the FTC, “It's illegal for a dealer to deny your warranty coverage simply because you had warranty work or routine maintenance or repairs performed by our automotive shop. Routine maintenance can include anything from oil changes, tire rotations and belt replacement, to fluid checks, flushes, new brake pads and inspections.” It is also important to note that the “Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act makes it illegal for a company to void your warranty or deny coverage under the warranty for the simple cause that you used an aftermarket or recycled part.”
One of the major perks to bringing your vehicle to an independent repair shop is the ability to make your money go further. Many times, warranties will have a limit or a deductible. Our goal is to make your warranty work for you.
Lastly, If you are on the fence about whether or not to purchase an AFTERMARKET or EXTENDED warranty. We suggest opening a savings account for your car and putting back money for possible breakdowns. While warranties are great the limitations can sometimes outweigh the benefits.
Whichever option you may choose we will be there for you every step of the way! We look forward to taking care of your new or under extended/aftermarket warranty, car, truck, SUV or Jeep right here. Give us a call today!
