Value vs Price
Here at European Auto Works in Sunnyvale, we strive to offer the best value for quality auto repair in Silicon Valley. One of the most confusing aspects of vehicle maintenance/repair is trying to distinguish the difference between getting something cheap, and getting a good value for your dollar. After all, the lowest price is often not the best deal.
For example, a "quick oil change" shop off El Camino Real - or anywhere else in Silicon Valley -- may have a low price for an oil change. But are you getting a good value? Are they using the correct type of oil filter, or are they using a cheap alternative? Are they using an oil that meets the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications, or are they using a non-approved oil? Remember, just because oil labeled as “synthetic” doesn’t mean that it is the correct oil for your vehicle.
If they're using lesser quality parts, you may be saving $30 per oil service, but paying for it to be done more often than necessary. And that short-term savings can cost you thousands if your engine should need expensive repairs, due to inferior parts. We don’t believe that is getting a good value for your money.
We understand that the quality of a repair on your vehicle can only be as good as the quality of the parts that used. That’s why European Auto Works utilizes parts that are built by the Original Equipment Manufacturer. European vehicles have finely tuned engines and sensors that perform their best when equipped with OEM parts.
Not all parts are the same! The filter on the left is a high-quality fleece lined oil filter, designed by the vehicle manufacturer for extended service intervals. The filter on the right is an inexpensive, ordinary paper filter, and is not approved by the vehicle manufacturer. Although these two oil filters will both fit the same vehicle, only one of them is approved by the Vehicle Manufacturer.
Maintaining your vehicle by following the manufacturer’s service/maintenance guidelines will give you the best and most reliable service from your fine quality automobile. This preventive maintenance will also eliminate costly problems before they start, which will save you time and money.
