I am also one who avoids dealerships and shops at all costs. I do 100% of maintenance on all of my families cars. I have even went as far as to repair a warranty issue on my own. I do not trust anyone to do the job right. Other than myself. If a warranty repair is fairly inexpensive I will repair it myself. If it is expensive the dealer can fix it. The only thing I cannot do is body work so that always gets done by a trusted body shop.
