World Wide Alternators and Starters Outlet
I needed an alternator and starter for my boat, and they had both. If it has a motor, they carry it. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. There's also an auto mechanic shop next door which makes it a one stop shop. They can pretty much do anything and they are extremely honest (which is hard to find these days). I've been a customer for over 10 years and I've been very happy with their products and service.

Mark (and Pete) have been taking good care of my cars ( a 1990 Acura and now a 2001 Honda) for 14 years. I was so happy when I learned about this shop. Mark is honest, trustworthy, and knowledgeable. He has given me reliable advice when looking for a good used car to replace my Acura which had over 280,000 miles on it, thanks to the good shape he kept it in. I really appreciate having a mechanic i trust.

We just had service on our Honda, and have had Mark service both our cars over the last 10 years, and have always been greatly satisfied. I even take my daughter's Honda there when an issue comes-up. He is good, fast, and reliable.

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.
