OMG!! I can't believe how kind these people are and what they did for me and my family! Due to a really dumb move of not shutting my hatch completely and it leaving the interior lights on over night, I killed my battery!! I contacted the places closest to me, Meineke (right across the street) an NAPA (couple blocks down the road), so clearly I walked to Meineke an they do not loan out their battery charger jumper thing so I called them when I got back home and asked if they would charge the battery if I brought it to them, a women said they don't do that, I asked to talk with the manager who picked up the phone and he didn't even say "hi" or anything pleasant but simply said "you can bring it down an ill through it on the charger for 3 hours but it's gonna cost you $44", I was so shocked by this, especially considering last year when this store was broken into it was us who gave the cops a discription of the car cause we live on a hill directly above them. We then called Napa, I spoke to the manager named Eric and he said "just bring it down and I'll charge it for you", I asked how much it would cost and he said "ohh I wouldn't charge you for that", I thanked him over an over an I think I actually told him I loved him lol. Eric had said all of this before even knowing the situation with Meineke so it wasn't like he was trying to just be better then them, he's just a nice person. I'm am so thankful to them for doing this, so incredibly nice! Also, because I had to walk the battery there, Eric said that if their delivery guy was still making deliveries by the time the battery is done that they would drop it off for us, just really sweet people. I also know they have great prices cause the hubby always goes there for the parts to fix the signal lights and the sensory stuff but this situation just solidifies our reasons for going to NAPA! Once again THANK YOU so much Eric!!
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.
