Pep Boys Auto Parts & Service
This is one of the best Pep Boys locations I highly recommend it ! I work in Downers Grove and live in Chicago and last week on Friday I was working late and came out to a headlight blown. If you are street wise then you know that driving the distance I drive with one headlight is just looking for a ticket. So I stopped in to this Pep Boys and they were packed with customers at 7:20 at night. The gentleman that asked me what I needed said I might have to wait til after 8:00 to have someone check it out. Needless to say after a long day at work and still long drive back to the city I was really to tired to wait. The gentleman seem to see my disappointment and offered me another solution but then proceeded to take it upon himself to come check my light and change out my bulb instead. I was so appreciative of his compassion and his willingness to help me. His name is David. I Highly recommend everyone that needs something for there cars to go there. Thanks David!

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.
