I was driving my 2002 Honda Accord on a long journey from Salt Lake City to Kennewick, WA. Out in the middle of nowhere, I suddenly lost my cruise control and my speedometer and my engine light went on. The car seemed to run OK, so I limped on into the nearest Honda dealer, which happened to be Middlekauf. They took excellent care of us, diagnosed the problem and told us they could have the part in a couple of days, however since we were heading to a different destination, they said that we could safely drive the car the rest of the way and tell the Honda dealer in Kennewick what part was needed. That is what we did. Catastrophe averted! The dealer in Kennewick replaced the part that Middlekauf had identified and that solved all the problems. Thanks to all the guys in the service department at Middlekauf. They are the "real deal."

I'm impressed! After a broken windshield replacement, the cameras needed realignment (safety item). The master technician was not happy with how it was coming out so spent extra time to make it perfect rather than just rush it out the door. I don't care about the extra time to get a safety system fixed, I do appreciate that it is done right, like new.I will not take my new Honda anywhere else but it probably won't break again.
Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
