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.

From start to finish Bill Cramer was awesome! I purchased a 2015 GMC Terrain last month from Patrick Kelly. I arrived at the dealership with an idea of what I wanted but Patrick helped me get into a nicer trim level for just a little bit more money. The Terrain was the right color on the outside but was the wrong color so Bill Cramer found a leather kit with the right color and installed it. The quality of the installation of the leather and service was beyond my expectations! I will be referring this dealership to everybody I know.

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.

Awesome, awesome service. I called to price a rebuilt starter for my lawn tractor, Joey instead offered to talk me through a simple diagnostic of my lawn tractor starting system to make sure it was, in fact, the starter. I accepted and it appears it's not my starter at all but the battery. This guy made my day because there is just NO ONE in town that treats you this good. He was so patient and cheerful with me. Panama Alternator and Starter will forever be my shop of choice for stuff like this. Joey is a Prince!

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����

Very pleased with the customer service and technical expertise of these people. I recommend them to everyone for anything alternator, starter, or generator related. Big thanks to Joey for the immediate diagnostic and repair of my alternator, 2000 Grand Cherokee, he had me ready in less than 20 minutes. All while saving me a days wait and around $150. Settle for nothing less than the best in Panama City! Thank you so much,P. Riopel

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!

Just took 2009 Impala to their new quick service center for an oil change and was in and out within 30 minutes or so. Better than going on the other side and waiting with others that have problems with their car. Haven't had any major issues with their service. Took car in because was having trouble starting a month or so ago and besides fixing that problem they also did the recall maintenance on it without being asked.

From my initial phone to call to my final purchase & beyond, my experience was wonderful. I worked with David McDonald who saw to my every need. He even took the time to reach out to me after I purchased my care to make sure I was happy.I would recommend, with no hesitation, Bill Crammer & David McDonald to anyone to considering make a new car purchase.

Visited them for my first time in June 2014. Bought some body filler and spreaders. Their price was better than I was getting on the internet, because I didn't have to pay for shipping. This was a pleasant surprise. I'll continue to buy from them as long as the prices stay competitive.
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.
