I would never go back to this particular store because of the treatment I received from the manager when I needed to return/replace a defective article. I had all of the paperwork and yet he would not come out and look at the defective mdse on my car, nor would he agree to replacing it., He and the girl working with him seemed very unhappy, and I thought maybe because it was July 4th and they were upset that they had to work. Regardless, he said I waited too long and when I explained I was in the hospital he said that was no excuse and gave a personal tale of woe of his own. I felt humiliated, and left the store. As I pulled out of the lot he came chasing after me; for what, I don't know, but his attitude was so frightening to me I did not ever want to go there again. His two young male coworkers who sold me the items were exceptional, helping me buy what I needed. Sadly, the manager needs better skills to work with the public.. I only wanted what I paid for..nothing more, nothing less. Instead, I got insulted.The district manager has called me and apologized, saying this was not normal behavior for this manager. Perhaps a bad day for him,but I don't expect that from any store I patronize.

I'VE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM GETTING A HOLD OF THEM EITHER, I DIAL THE PHONE NUMBER & THEY PICK UP THE PHONE AND SAY HOWIES. IN A NUTSHELL, I HIGHLY RECOMEND THEM.

They are so helpful, friendly, patient and know what they are talking about. Jesse (owner) took the time to ask the right questions, make suggestions and call around for the best pricing. I have become a life-long customer and will always get parts and work done there. They are honest and that is what is most important...integrity.

I didn’t even recognize my truck when I picked it up. After a minor accident in a parking lot, it had a few dings, scratches and dents. When I picked it up it looked better than it did when I bought it. They even took the extra time to wash it for me too. I’ve never seen this F-150 look so good. Thanks guys!

Great work with great customer service! New to town and couldn't get any good advice on a good mechanic to go to. Luckily I found Dave here who diagnosed my tranny troubles at no charge, and gave it to me straight. I'll recommend him to everyone having tranny trouble!

Marco was amazing! He was very patient. He knew what he was doing and he understood how much I really needed a new car. He stayed very late to get me in a car. It was not just any car but the car for me. All the features I need. Thank You Marco! :)

Art went above and beyond to earn my business. He followed up with phone calls and ideas to get me to come in. He drove the car to me, for me to see and test drive. He finally got me to come in and closed the deal.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
