Panama Alternator And Starter
Panama Alternator and Starter is a Top of the Line family owned and operated repair shop. Our old car broke down/died in the middle of road and had to be pushed into a parking lot. Im new to the area but called Panama Alternator and Starter. IT IS THE BEST DECISION WE MADE. The owner Joey took the time to find out details of car and what happened to it. He personally helped us get the car to his shop and he gave us an EXCELLENT price on the very fast service we received. The alternator was rebuilt and installed in a matter of hours. The car runs better than before. Joey and the mechanic Derrich also took care of a few other things on this old car that needed replaced. Joey, his wife Chrissy, Derrich and the rest of the team at Panama Alternator and Starter truly care about their customers, very honest with you and go well out of their way to take care of their customers needs and give very HIGH QUALITY services. This IS the best place to take your vehicle for service.

Absolute Top Concrete & Masonry
We recently had our old driveway removed and a new driveway poured by Absolute Top Concrete, and I am extremely impressed by the work they did. I received a detailed quote on a Monday, work started on Tuesday, and the driveway was completed by the following Monday. I had to work throughout most of the process, so Mr. Archie kept me updated auth photos and text messages throughout the day. Even when I made a change to the original plan, they were extremely professional and made the changes right away. I always felt like a VIP when working with Absolute Top Concrete, and their prices beat out all of the other quotes I received. Highly recommend!! ����

Should have negative stars. They sold me a 2013 Suburban and told me I had 60 days to find any problems and bring it back so they can fix it. 2 weeks later, brakes were making grinding noise and truck was bouncing during braking. Took it in (about 300 miles later) and they rotated rotors. Problem didn't stop. Took it back and they rotated them again. Bouncing stopped and grinding noise stopped temporarily. Grinding started again and they are now telling me the rear rotors, pads and calipers are all bad and they want $1100 to fix. They said we've now put too many miles on it and it's past the 60 days. Well, DUH!!! You didn't fix it the first 2 times I took it in. Bill Cramer waited until it was past the time allowed to deal with and fix the actual problem. The assistant manager was rude and disrespectful. Kept interrupting me when I was talking. Raising his voice and came close to calling me a liar. He said that this info isn't on the ticket so I didn't actually address this problem before. I can't help what they write on the ticket but they were told about these problems. I also don't stand there in the garage while they are doing their job to make sure everything they find goes on the ticket. How am I supposed to know the calipers are causing the problem? They are the ones doing the inspection. Jeff in the service department tried to work with me but the assistant manager wanted to be "not nice". They sold me a vehicle with bad brakes and they won't fix it. Their inspection ticket they fill out before it goes up for sale says brakes were inspected. Clearly that wasn't true or they new they were bad and didn't want to fix it. I would feel more comfortable going to a shady used car dealer that wore a mask, worked from a warehouse, only took cash, and grinded all the serial numbers off. Never buy from Bill Cramer unless you like getting the shaft and enjoy being lied to.

Panama Alternator And Starter
We brought my 1998 Lincoln Town car in with an intermittent battery light problem. The light didn't come on at the shop during the test so they couldn't be 100% sure if it was an alternator problem. We said go ahead and change it out anyway. They did and said if any more problems come back. That was one week ago. NO MORE PROBLEMS! And the cost for all the attention to detail and install was very reasonable. Thanks guys!

Panama Alternator And Starter
I was referred to Panama Alternator and Starter today by Quadratec. I'm from New Jersey and needed the most professional, precise assistance and help for my Jeep CJ5. I spoke with Joey and he did everything in his power to help me get my wiring correct for my regulator/alternator. He was very patient and helpful and spent 30 minutes researching what exactly was wrong with my alternator wiring. (P.S. The owner before me was an idiot.) Thank you Joey and the Panama Alternator and Starter family!!! Love from NJ����

Way over priced...there are many other options in town. They advertise that they will buy your used vehicle from you but don't fall for this as they will offer you well below trade in value....they will have a laundry list of things that will devalue your car but they will turn around and have it back on their lot for 2-3 thousand dollars above retail. They don't have much of a used car inventory either.

Incredible Service by an incredible team. I went in to get my car checked and the Manager Bill absolutely handled the the situation with care and professionalism. I came in with one issue and he realized my problem created another issue with my tires. The staff asseessed the situation and they made sure my car was safe fo my sons and myself before we traveled on the road. Mikkel and Cody the Mechanics on site made my heart happy with their persistance! Thank you Pep Boys. You have my business.Ceo/ Owner 3D Enterprises, Inc.
Tips & Advices
Commercial cleaning companies are not required to carry liability insurance, but it offers valuable protection for both business owners and their clients. Liability insurance covers property damage, bodily injury, and advertising lawsuits, and it also assists with costs related to broken furniture and equipment. When evaluating commercial cleaning companies, choose one that provides liability coverage for your own protection and peace of mind.
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.
