LKQ OF Eastern Idaho
I represent ASAP Repair of Rupert Idaho. We have been a customer of LKQ of Eastern Idaho for years. Recently, we ordered a used engine from LKQ and they claimed that each cylinder was tested at 170 lbs of compression. We went ahead and trusted this claim and installed the engine, a 20 hour job and when we started the engine, we found one cylinder completely dead and the other 7 cylinders were tested at 140 lbs of compression. Clearly, this engine was not tested when it left their facility. They shipped us another engine, but when we asked to be reimbursed for the labor, they said there was nothing that could be done because we had not purchased the extended warranty and "that is the risk you take when you buy a used engine". Why should we have to purchase an extended warranty to be covered on an engine that never worked in the first place? My warning to you: DONT take LKQs word for the condition of their parts. DONT install without testing your self because they will not work with you

I called this business to get my rear bumper replaced, and they gave me a great price on it! They are the more professional parts place in town out of the two we have.
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.
