### Cons of Choosing a Dealership:

1. **Impersonal Service**: Dealerships often lack the personal touch and community involvement that make a local shop like ours special.
2. **Higher Costs**: Dealership services can come with a premium price tag, without necessarily delivering higher quality.
3. **Limited Flexibility**: Dealerships might not have the versatility to work on as wide a range of vehicle models or invest in community and cultural initiatives.
4. **Extended Wait Times**: You might find yourself facing longer wait times for appointments and services, along with less communication and transparency throughout the repair process.

By choosing 17th Street Automotive, you're not just getting top-tier automotive care; you're supporting a business that gives back to the community, values education and continuous improvement, and prioritizes customer satisfaction and transparency above all.
