Clutch Repair Knowledge
Insist on a real clutch specialist. Some shops masquerade as clutch specialists, but they are only participating in an advertising campaign. Here today and gone tomorrow, some shops lease their clutch phone numbers by the week. These shops are sold the idea that once they get your car in for repairs, they have the opportunity to sell you other services. Some will greatly inflate the price of smaller items like a rear main seal. During the clutch repair, the cost of a rear main seal should be minimal. Ask before the work begins. When you call Clutch & Brake Doctors, you are talking to a real clutch specialist, with all of the right tools and expertise to fix your car. Plus, If it Ain’t broke, we don’t fix it!
Clutch Repair Warranty
Most clutch manufacturers have a very limited warranty, and it is usually limited to manufacturing defects. The shop you choose should reflect the confidence that they have in the parts they install. Better shops will offer a warranty that exceeds the limited manufacturer’s warranty. Clutch & Brake Doctors has a lifetime warranty on the parts and a two year or 20,000 mile warranty on the labor. How’s that for confidence!
