I asked for 3/8 heater hose bought 10 feet of hose. Got home and realized they sold me 10 feet of fuel hose. I needed trans cooler hose also for a leaky trans line. I figured I would go exchange the incorrect hose for trans cooler hose. When returning I the girl on the counter had not let me explain their mistake when she stopped me dead in my tracks that auto zone does not exchange hose. I didn't want to argue so I went to Orielly's to get my hose. Come to realize my trans leak was from a cracked radiated I guess what I bought a new radiator at Orielly's. Too bad Autozone your poor service costed you to lose a customer and all my purchases on my civic from here on out. I am now looking to replace my struts. Guess where I am going to purchase them now?
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.
