As I traveled to visit friends, my car developed some running issues. Upon my arrival my friend recommended I take it to Bryant Automotive, a local independent auto repair shop. When I called Bryant Automotive, they asked if I leave the car with them for awhile. This way they would fit me in since I am traveling from out of the area. The owner Dave, called me with the diagnosis. He explained in great detail what was causing my running issue and the cost of the repair. I felt the estimate was very reasonable with issues at hand. I authorized the repair. By 6pm, I was on my way back home. The car runs great ! To my surprise, they also buffed out a foggy headlamp with no charge. Customer service at it's BEST ! Hard to find an auto repair shop in my area of Hickory Hills, that I would feel so comfortable. Wish I was closer, then I would take my cars to Bryant's for all my automotive needs.

Bryant was more than fair with me when my BMW broke down. He towed and repaired the car using parts I bought myself and did a great job. His costw as reasonable and I have no complaints. Great people to deal with.

I took my car in to have the alternator checked. After a short wait Josh said my car was fine. I was surprised I didn't need a new alternator. These guys are very honest and trustworthy.
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.
