The Importance of Diagnostic Services

The best way to avoid costly and time-consuming auto repairs is to take care of routine maintenance issues and to listen to your car before major issues arrive. Certain things like car accidents and uncontrollable weather can’t be avoided, but there are several common auto issues that can be avoided simply by taking care of some basic diagnostic care. Unfortunately, not all shops are equipped to handle diagnostic services for today’s vehicles. Most modern vehicles revolve around an internal computer system, a system that can be immensely complicated and difficult to work with if a technician isn’t properly trained or is poorly equipped. Every one of our Dobbs Tire & Auto Centers is fully equipped to handle even the most technologically advanced vehicle. Don’t settle for second best; get your diagnostic services taken care of at one of your local Dobbs Tire & Auto Centers.


Due to the huge advancements made in technology over the past 20 years, cars have become immensely complicated to work on and to diagnose. In order to properly diagnose issues with these complex systems, auto shops need to have an extensive arsenal of technology to interact with these computers. If you have ever owned a car that has a faulty computer system in it, you know how frustrating and difficult it can be to bring it into a shop thinking that you are paying for a solution when in reality you are only delaying the issue.

There are plenty of auto shops that have a surplus of semi-skilled laborers and are completely lacking the technology they need to properly deal with the advanced computerized systems most late model cars are equipped with. Every one of our Dobbs Tire & Auto Centers is fully equipped to handle diagnostic services for all makes and models of cars. One of the most important pieces of technology that we use for diagnostic services is the complex computer that we connect to your car’s internal system to better understand exactly what is going wrong with your car. Many internal computers can track existing issues and give us the information that we need to quickly and efficiently resolve what issues your car is experiencing. All of this technology isn’t worth much if it is put in the hands of someone who doesn’t know how to use it, which is why we spend so much time training our technicians.

Technical Skills

All of our automotive service technicians are trained extensively on how to best use the technology that we use. We pride ourselves in having one of the most highly trained workforces in the automotive industry. This training doesn’t stop once a technician has been hired. Every time we bring a new piece of technology into our shops, and whenever any of our existing pieces of technology updates or evolves, we retrain our technicians to become experts in that new technology. We believe in going the extra mile for our valued customers, and by mastering the technology in today’s vehicles, we have streamlined the auto maintenance process to get you back on the road. We do the job right the first time; which is the Dobbs difference.

The complex computer systems, controlling sensors, combustion and interactions between electrical systems, etc., found in today’s vehicles have made it extremely difficult to work on your car yourself. Not only that, but the old fashioned, sub-par technology, if any, found at many auto shops means that your car might never get the repair it needs. If you want to get your car running smoothly the first time, stop into a local Dobbs Tire & Auto Centers to get your diagnostic services taken care of by an expert team today.
