Where's the best place to get a tune-up?

Is it better to go to a dealership or mechanic for a tune-up? Like any maintenance, I know I can choose between the dealer or a repair shop for a tune-up.

“The best place to get a tune-up is wherever you feel comfortable bringing your car.
In most cases, the dealership will always do a good job, although they’re going to charge far more than any independent spots. If you just moved to a new city, you may not know a shop just yet. In this case, taking it to a dealer might be a great idea. Furthermore, your manufacturer’s warranty or used car warranty might be honored at the dealer.
If you have a private shop that you trust, by all means, take the car to them. You’ll probably get a better price, you’ll be helping a local business, and you know the work will be done correctly.
In addition to maintaining and tuning up your car, you also want to perform regular reviews of your car insurance. Without regular reviews, you could be overpaying and not even know it! If you want help automating this, try using the Jerry app. Jerry automatically reviews your policy every six months by comparing rates with the top 50 providers.
