A large part of providing quality auto service is the type of parts used to replace worn or malfunctioning components. There are indeed many cheaper options for aftermarket parts or parts not made by an OEM such as Kia or Nissan. But there’s a good chance they’ll negatively affect your vehicle or cause other unexpected problems, which means more money and more time at the repair shop.
That’s why Dicksons suggest always using OEM parts rather than aftermarket parts, when possible, as they will be the exact part that was used when your car was first assembled. If you stick to genuine parts, your car will run reliably and look great. Non-genuine body parts may result in vehicle performance or safety systems not functioning as designed.
Regular maintenance and repairs are part of owning and maintaining a vehicle.
It is very important to the health and safety of your car to make sure you are getting quality service from a trained technician who is doing the job right. Regardless of your warranty status, ‘Approved’ and ‘Official’ parts are specifically designed or supplied by your automaker because they are built to the same specifications as the original parts. The authenticity of every part from the manufacturer keeps your vehicle in top condition. Inferior quality parts can cause damage and loss of performance, possibly even endangering the safety of you and your passengers.
Dicksons obviously provide original parts for Kia, Suzuki, Nissan, and MG
But the good news for local vehicle owners and businesses is that Dicksons have expanded their franchise range to now include official automotive parts for Peugeot, Vauxhall, Citroen, and DS Automobiles.
As per Dickson’s recognised customer service, all Parts Department calls are picked up quickly and actioned by an experienced parts team who have a good level of understanding in order to provide a quality service. So, any Peugeot, Vauxhall, Citroen, and DS Automobiles parts can now be supplied quickly by Dicksons to any local garage or workshop.
Dicksons also hope to add more auto franchises in the future, with the aim to provide as many franchise parts covering Inverness and the Highlands as possible.
