The best thing you can do, of course, is seek out the best repair shop in your area (you can also get some advice from your auto insurance company). In addition to that, you will want not make sure that the repair shop in question actually has your best interest at heart. No, it might not be easy. but it will not be impossible either.

It is important that you know the difference, and of course know which one you are dealing with.
In some cases car repair can only be performed by the original manufacturer. This is especially true if the car is current year or relatively new. The problem with many newer cars is that they have proprietary systems or unfamiliar layouts, and third party shops need to take time to familiarize themselves with the vehicle in question before they can effectively make repairs.
