Advance Auto Parts
To store manager,A couple of weeks ago, my wife and I were traveling through New Jersey on our way to North Carolina. In a rest area we stopped at, we had a problem with our vehicle, it would not turn over. A passerby noticed our dilemma and offered to help us out. So, we found that there was an Advance Auto nearby in East Orange and headed right there. I waited outside with our car still running and my wife went to purchase a new battery.She noticed the employee behind the counter looked very busy but was doing his best to keep up with the tasks in front of him. She made a comment to him about how busy it was and that she could see the focused effort he was putting into doing his job. He looked up and was surprised that anybody would even notice, but proceeded to ring up the battery we needed. He came outside with the battery on a cart and proceeded to make the swap. I asked his name and how long he had worked for Advance Auto and he said he is Paul and worked there 10 years. With the new battery installed, our car started right up and we were on our way. We thanked Paul for his hard work and told him that we will remember him every time we are traveling because of the impression and connection he made with us on that day!I had a job similar to what Paul does and it is a great feeling to hear from customers that they appreciate the work customer faced employees do. I always tried to make my customers feel like they were the most important people at that instant and they would always walk out smiling. Paul seems to know that little trick too!ThanksJack and Marianne Swiatek

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.
