Your Porsche is like your child: you spend a lot of money on it, you take good care of it, and you change its oil every 3,000 miles. In all seriousness, many Porsche owners tend to take immense pride in their vehicle(s). And really, who could blame them? A well-maintained, immaculate Porsche is a happy Porsche, and a happy Porsche is a happy owner. It’s a win/win.
Our Dedication To Your Vehicle: The HOUSE Automotive Promise
At HOUSE Automotive here in Southern California, we’re no stranger to the Porsche community. From canyon drives and track days to Cars & Coffee, we’ve been deeply involved in the Porsche ownership scene since our inception, and we don’t plan on going anywhere (that is, unless it involves driving our own Porsches). We understand that owners tend to take their ride quite seriously, and that’s why we’re proud to provide the absolute best independent Porsche service and repair from Pasadena to Encino.
In the interest of keeping your Porsche in tip-top shape, we’re going to cover several great reasons why you should leave your tools in the toolbox and let our experienced, certified independent Porsche mechanics do the work for you. Though you may be tempted to tackle a fix on your own, we encourage you to keep reading below to learn more in today’s blog post!
Why You Should Let Our Independent Porsche Technicians Take Care Of It
You Could Make Things Worse
Ambition and pride certainly have their place in this world, but when it comes to fixing your Porsche — whether it’s fairly new or a classic — repairs and maintenance are truly better left to our professionals. The mechanics at HOUSE Automotive carry the experience, passion, and certification from Porsche themselves to do the job right every single time.
Unless you’re a mechanic or have a demonstrated history of mechanical proficiency, you might find that a YouTube tutorial on how to change your 997’s oil simply may not be enough.
You’ll Need The Right Tools
Now, even if you genuinely possess the mechanical know-how to get inside your Porsche and fix or maintain it properly, you might get halfway through the process only to find that you don’t have the right tools on-hand to complete the job. There’s nothing more frustrating than spending the time and effort taking apart your Porsche, only to find that you’ll need to special order a certain tool and put everything back together in the meantime.
To ensure that you don’t waste any of your time, taking your Porsche to reputable mechanic in L.A. is the safe way to go.
You Could Void Your Warranty
Okay, so we’ll say that you a) have the mechanical know-how of working on your Porsche inside-out and b) you actually have the right tools on-hand to properly get the job done. But have you thought about what this DIY fix might do to your warranty?
Unless you have an older, classic Porsche or one that’s well beyond warranty coverage, you’ll want to think twice before throwing it on a lift. Taking your ride into HOUSE Automotive, on the other hand, ensures that you’re getting a worry-free repair job or tune-up without the fear of voiding your warranty.
As a certified independent Porsche service center, we receive official training from Porsche and stay up-to-date on the latest practices, tools, and model-specific information. We’ll never void your warranty — instead, you’ll receive an additional, separate 2-year warranty on all work performed by our technicians.
You Could Get Hurt
Working on your own vehicle certainly carries a sense of pride and accomplishment. There’s no feeling quite like a job well done, especially when it involved your own sweat (and maybe even a few tears in the process).
Do you know what the job shouldn’t involve? Blood. At the expense of coming across as a scare tactic, you risk suffering from potential bloodshed and other dangerous accidents if you work on your own Porsche (and you don’t know exactly what you’re doing). People have been seriously injured and even died by being crushed from an improperly lifted vehicle, a cylinder block that wasn’t secured correctly, or even after driving off without connecting something correctly.
We’re not trying to make our readers paranoid, but all we’re saying is that letting our own techs take care of your car is the safest way to go.
You May Need Another Vehicle (To Get Around In)
Some fixes take longer than others. Even if you’re an experienced mechanic, you may find that a transmission fix or deep engine fix will take a lot longer than planned. This means that your Porsche is sitting on a lift, completely torn apart, and thus is temporarily undriveable.
But how do you get around? You better hope that this is your Sunday driver and that you have another daily driver on-hand. When you visit HOUSE Automotive for independent Porsche service, we’ll take great care of you. Need a loaner vehicle until your ride is good to go? Done. Need a simple shuttle ride to continue your day? Done and done. We even offer free flatbed towing!
