The MTD Automotive Service Survey breaks down the various service segments so that you have a benchmark to which you can compare your own dealership's performance.
It covers everything from air conditioning service to shock and strut work. Previously, we addressed engine diagnostics, exhaust service, brake service, battery/electrical service and air conditioning service.
