Service After the Sale

The first car you buy from a dealership is a credit to the sales department; whether you return to buy another car from the same dealership often depends upon the service department. Our award-winning service staff is highly-trained, friendly, and driven to make the right decisions for our customers. We offer complimentary shuttle service throughout the greater Bangor area and two customer lounges (one is a quiet lounge for getting work done) for your convenience. We also offer meet or beat tire pricing, complimentary state inspections, nitrogen tire inflation, and more. Plus, if your car needs warranty repair and must be left at the dealership overnight, you'll receive a complimentary rental until your car is ready to be picked up. When it comes to service after the sale, you'll do better at Darling's!
