Service Standards

Independent shops employ mechanics that have experience working in the auto services, but it may not necessarily be with your Nissan model. Because they work on whatever model comes through, their experience will never be equal to our certified technicians. Nissan-authorized service centers are required to perform at a higher level and will also carry certification. Our technicians go through continuous training to stay updated with new models. Also, they spend all of their work hours servicing different Nissan models. When you bring your vehicle to Chapman Nissan, you'll get better technicians completing the work.

OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer and refers to the auto parts that are designed by the Nissan manufacturer for your model. When a Nissan dealership services your car, you can expect to get these high-quality parts installed during service. These parts are designed to spec and have been rigorously tested to confirm fit and performance. Aftermarket parts refer to independent manufacturers that create parts designed to fit a variety of makes and models. They are attractive to independent shops because they are cheaper than OEM parts but the problem is that they come with vast uncertainties regarding fit and performance.

Dealership Benefits

Choosing a Nissan service center gives you options such as rental cars to help you get back and forth for those longer services. When you choose an independent shop for your service, you are not met with amenities and options as you receive at a Nissan dealership. You are responsible for your alternate transportation during service and independents don't feature online scheduling for your convenience. Does your local independent shop offer complimentary Uber / Lyft services to your appointment? We think not at Chapman Nissan of Philadelphia!

Express Service Department

We operate an express service department ready to get your Nissan in and out with the routine maintenance that it needs without an appointment. You won't find independent shops offering certified service standards alongside express services, which is at the heart of our customer value proposition. When you need to get the highest quality service for your Nissan, we invite you to Chapman Nissan of Philadelphia to collect!
