European automakers produce some of the world’s best and most popular vehicles. Those vehicles often have significantly different designs than domestic automobiles and require a well-trained European auto mechanic to perform proper maintenance and repairs. A good European auto mechanic is capable of maintaining and repairing a variety of popular makes and models, including BMWs, Mercedes-Benz models, and Cooper Minis. Many European automakers are producing smart cars that likewise need well-trained mechanics to keep them in good running condition. Here’s why you should take your car to a European auto mechanic.

Knowledge of and Experience With European Vehicles

It is very easy to overlook something as basic as changing the brake fluid on a domestic or imported vehicle. A lack of good brake fluid affects braking performance and makes a vehicle less safe to drive. A good example is the BMW. If you own a BMW, you should change the brake fluid every three years or 30,000 miles, whichever comes first, according to Check Engine.

A properly trained, certified, and experienced European auto mechanic can perform such maintenance to help your vehicle stay in its best mechanical condition. Trying even a basic tune-up at home might result in a poorly running engine. You should leave the maintenance to certified mechanics who know what they are doing and do it well.

Quick Access to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Parts

The nation’s network of auto parts distributors mostly focuses on domestic automakers and popular Asian models. Obtaining parts for European makes and models can be more difficult, and you’ll most likely have to go to a licensed dealership to order parts. Then you would have to install them yourself or pay a mechanic who might not do it right.

A factory-trained and certified European auto mechanic does not have such problems. The mechanic is likely working at a factory dealership that has plenty of parts on hand. If any are out of stock, they often can obtain them more quickly through the factory parts distribution network.

Many qualified mechanics also work at factory-authorized service facilities that specialize in European makes and models. Those mechanics also have easy access to parts and parts distribution systems that ensure your vehicle is fitted with parts that are designed for your vehicle.
