Santa Barbara Auto Group offers exceptional service and convenient scheduling to make maintaining your vehicle as easy as possible.

Let’s face it, the biggest reason we allow ourselves to fall behind on vehicle maintenance is a lack of time and accessibility. It’s very easy to forget to keep up with routine maintenance checks when life gets busy, and without a convenient way to schedule service it hardly seems worth the hassle. However, routine maintenance is extremely important in terms of keeping your luxury vehicle running at peak performance for as long as possible. It is also the best way to prevent small problems from snowballing into larger, more expensive ones. Catching automotive issues before they develop into more serious problems could potentially mean saving you a lot of money. This is why it is important have your luxury vehicle serviced regularly.

Our team of brand-certified expert technicians at Santa Barbara Auto Group offer brand-specific maintenance that customers can feel confident about. Our services with convenient online scheduling are specific to, but not limited to, eight premium luxury brands, including Acura, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and smart.

In addition to regularly scheduled maintenance services, there are other ways Santa Barbara Auto Group can help you care for your vehicle, including:

  • Tire Inspections – Tires play an integral role in the overall performance in the vehicle. Have them checked for tire pressure, and wear and tear every so often to prevent dangerous situations, such as popping your tire.
  • Fluid Checks – Check your oil often and especially before long trips. There are several other fluids to check as well, such as coolant or brake fluid.
  • Brake Inspections – Making sure your brakes are working properly is very important. Have a technician inspect them for wear, and to check brake fluid levels.
  • Consult your Technician – It’s always good to ask your technician if there are any additional services or repairs they might suggest. This could include inspecting the battery, windshield wipers, filters, or other fluids. As an expert, your technician will likely be able to spot and prevent future problems if given the chance.

Driving a luxury vehicle is most enjoyable when that vehicle is running at peak performance. What is the point of spending the money if you are going to treat it like an old rust-bucket? Visit Santa Barbara Auto Group’s website to conveniently schedule your routine maintenance check online, and relieve any concerns about your vehicle.

Enjoy Peace of Mind with Premium Vehicle Warranties

2016-03-23T11:15:10+00:00March 23rd, 2016|Maintenance, Warranties|

Luxury drivers enjoy greater confidence thanks to the class-leading comprehensive warranty programs offered by the premium automotive brands sold at Santa Barbara Auto Group.

When it comes time to purchase a new or certified pre-owned vehicle there are many factors to consider. What kind of performance are you looking for? What designs speak to your personality? What kind of functionality do you need for your lifestyle? What technology and safety systems are important to you? While all of these questions are important, there is another aspect of vehicle ownership that is often looked over but plays an important role in your ownership experience – your vehicle warranty.

Luxury Brands Set the Standard for Warranty Care

When searching for a car, it is very important to understand the warranty program that will apply to your purchase. Thankfully, when you choose to purchase a premium vehicle you can have peace of mind knowing your car comes with class-leading coverage. At Santa Barbara Auto Group, we are proud to represent eight luxury brands including Acura, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and smart. All of these brands offer class-leading warranty programs for their new and certified pre-owned vehicles. This way, drivers can have confidence that their new car will continue to run at peak performance for a long time. We also offer an expert team of trained brand technicians to provide services, maintenance, and repairs as necessary so you know your vehicle is getting the best care possible.

Leading Warranty Programs

So, when shopping for a new car, take a moment to understand the warranty benefits offered. For example, Mercedes-Benz offers an extensive certified pre-owned warranty program that now includes unlimited miles for 12 months. Before the certified pre-owned warranty even goes into effect, each Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned (MBCPO) Vehicle is first covered by the remaining portion of the original Mercedes-Benz four-year/50,000 mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Once the vehicle reaches the year or mileage maximum, the MBCPO vehicle is no longer covered by the new vehicle warranty and the MBCPO Limited Warranty can immediately take effect.   For MBCPO vehicles that are not eligible for the New Vehicle Warranty, the MBCPO Limited Warranty takes effect at the time of delivery so there is still no gap in coverage.

Another brand that prides itself in warranty coverage is BMW. BMW offers a convenient and affordable maintenance plan known as the BMW No-Cost Maintenance plan. This plan covers regularly scheduled maintenance needs for the first 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. For drivers who want even more coverage, there is also the BMW Maintenance Program Upgrade which increases the coverage to 6 years or 100,000 miles.

Thanks to strong warranty and maintenance programs, drivers have peace of mind knowing they can maintain a consistent service and check-up routine to keep their car in top condition. At Santa Barbara Auto Group we make this process even easier by offering a Scheduled Maintenance Guide online which outlines the services your vehicle requires and when they need to be performed. By staying on top of these simple services, you can help prevent major services or repairs in the long-term and enjoy top performance from your car for years to come.
