Why You Should Have Your Vehicle Serviced with the Dealer in Rochester, NY

Is it time to get your vehicle serviced? You might be debating whether to bring it to a dealership or your neighborhood mechanic. But finding a mechanic you can trust is tricky, and consistency is never guaranteed with independent shops. That’s why there are significant advantages to bringing your vehicle into a dealer’s service center. At Giles Volvo Cars, your car’s reliability and safety is our main concern, and we provide you with the careful attention to detail that you need to drive with confidence. Keep reading to learn more about the advantages that servicing your vehicle with certified service centers like ours can provide.

Benefits When You Service With Us

Expert Technicians

Our highly-skilled technicians are well-trained and knowledgeable about how to best take care of your Volvo. Not only have they had years of experience servicing vehicles just like yours, but they take pride in their work. Volvo cars are high-tech, expertly-crafted pieces of machinery that require skill to maintain, leading to their reputation for reliability and safety. Our technicians know this better than anyone. This isn’t something you’ll necessarily find at an independent mechanic.

OEM Parts

We combine our exceptional service with high-quality OEM parts to guarantee the best all-around driving experience. The best way to ensure that your Volvo continues to run smoothly and safely as intended is to use manufacturer-certified parts, not aftermarket parts like what you will often find at independent mechanics.

Honor Your Warranty

Each Volvo comes with a manufacturer warranty, and our dealership is certified to provide services that fall within the scope of that warranty free-of-charge to you. Your average local mechanic won’t be able to provide any such service. In fact, improperly-performed service from an independent mechanic could even void your warranty in some cases.


Our goal is to make your experience at our dealership truly exceptional. That’s why, in addition to providing excellent service, we include a hospitable and convenient waiting area. From Saturday hours and free Wi-Fi to available shuttle and loaner vehicle services, there’s plenty of reasons to choose us. Waiting in the office of a small mechanic shop will not be nearly as comfortable. That much we can guarantee.
