A GMC is engineered and manufactured to exact specifications that Certified Service experts know best. But have common misconceptions ever led you to choose a lesser service experience than you and your GMC deserve? Before your next maintenance visit, set the myths aside so you can set the service record straight.

DEALER SERVICE CAN BE A BETTER VALUE
Repair and maintenance costs can vary widely, which is why GMC Certified Service offers competitive, transparent pricing in addition to GM-exclusive offers and rebates. When you factor in the risk of going to a service center that may not get the job done right the first time, turning to your GMC dealer for service can be a cost-effective approach to auto care.

FACTORY-TRAINING MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Not every service issue can be adequately addressed by a general practitioner. Today’s advanced vehicles often require specialized care backed by meticulous skill. That’s why all GMC Certified Service technicians are GM-certified using competency-based training renewed annually, to help ensure that our techs know your vehicle best.

CONVENIENCE CAN GO FARTHER
A shop may be close, but purchase of a new GMC may include the added benefits of courtesy transportation, and a routine maintenance visit with an oil change at no extra charge. A pre-paid maintenance plan can also make the expert care of GMC Certified Service factory trained technicians the simpler choice.

THE RIGHT FIT IS THE RIGHT START
A part should fit, but here’s more to it. Fit doesn’t ensure precision, or that a part will function optimally. After identifying a precise and accurate service solution, a GMC Certified Service technician can get the job done with the same Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts fit to your GMC during assembly. OE performance isn’t always available at the corner garage.  

SERVICE DOESN’T HAVE TO BE COMPLICATED
Your GMC likely features technology that can help you monitor vehicle performance and service needs, such as an onboard diagnostic system that keeps track of maintenance requirements. It may even be possible to schedule a Certified Service visit at your dealer through the myGMC app or another convenient online portal.
