Advance Auto Parts
I have gone to Advanced for a while as I feel they have reasonable quality parts. The last time I went there the service was awful and the employees were rude. I will not go back.

Mazza Auto Parts Waterford
I had a part replaced and programed needlessly, and they refused to program correct part. Would not recommend service here.

What a miserable experience. Checked a few on line reviews found mixed results and figured we'd give it a shot since they were local and been in business for so long. MISTAKE. Must certainly be a 2nd generation business, as Dave at the Waterford location is nothing more than a 2nd rate BS'r used car salesman. Tuesday 4-15 Hunny takes van there for new motor, quick discussion about problem, what to expect and get assurances our van will be started by weeks end and ready following week. Following week arrives not hearing anything become concerned and Tuesday 4-22 call there to check on status.... You guessed it ..... Dave starts with the "we're so busy and haven't even started it yet" routine, but promises it will be strted 1st of following week. Patiently wait entire week but come Thursday 4-24 still not heard a word and assuming the worst call there AGAIN to politely check on status and YEEEP. Same 'ol story, except this time we get the "Ohhh don't worry, your van is next up and we are "hoping" to get it into the shop tomorrow to begin". Sorry Dave but already being out of a work van for well over a week and knowing this type of BS all to well and after 2 broken promises (or should we say "used car guy lines of BS) tell Dave enough is enough and to have our van out front, keys in it and ready to go. (Now it gets even worse).......... 2 broken promises and over a week and 1/2 later without even a single wrench being turned on it, Dave informs us that (due to his ineptitude) that if we cancel it, we're subject to a 65 dollar cancelation fee to cover HIS COSTS for credit card fees. SOME F'ING NERVE......YOU blantantly lie not once but TWICE, then want to charge us for your incompentence.... Sorry buddy !!! (It gets even better) As we ready to get the van phone rings and it's Dave asking US, yes US the customer if we have jumper cables for the van (which has been sitting in his lot for week and a 1/2) to jump it, when it has a new battery not even 2 months old in it. Beyond peeved but still polite tell Dave we want van running, charged and ready for pick up. (it gets better) Get there and yeep.. Van still sitting in same spot, NOT RUNNING and his guys (who claim they're mechanics) have no clue what's wrong, but now he and his "mechnic" have no problems telling me (who they see as a dumb woman they can screw over) that it nust be a starter or solenoid and that battery didn't look new. So this dumb woman asks "Did you hit the factory alarm / kill switch on the key fob"? (guess what the reply was?) So this dumb woman hits the fob (which my husband told them about.... TWICE) and low and behold van starts. Then Dave showing how clueless he truly is begins to tell me "if you take it anywhere else they are going to get the motor from us and we hate to pull you out of line"... Sorry Dave... Japer engines in Michigan has one IN STOCK and in 3 days / Monday, we'll have our van back. Moral of the story...... What a waste of our time and if you value your time (and money), DO NOT do the same. God only knows how much longer this would of gone on had we left it there, and how much of a mess this whole thing would of morphed into had we actually had these "wanna be" mechanics actually do the work. I mean, come on.... A DUMB WOMAN has to show a bunch of "Mechanics" something as simple as a common key fob alarm to start a vehicle?

Suburban Ford Of Waterford
I am very disappointed with Suburban Ford, we test drove a used Ford Edge, liked it, looked at other vehicles at other dealers also, contacted the salesman a short time later that we dealt with, said we wanted to purchase it, he took a $500.00 deposit on 11/07/2016, talked to him on wednesday 11/09/2016 he said he would take care of the noise in the right rear wheel that we spoke of, arrived at dealer on 11/10/2016, he said it was sold and tried to push another Ford Edge at us that the body has A LOT of scratches and needed paint work. This is very upsetting that no honesty is in place, apparently the vehicle was sold before he took my deposit. We feel scammed, he knew it and tried to get us to buy another vehicle when we were over an 1 1/2 away driving time.I hope they refund my deposit soon!!! We went to another Dealer after leaving Suburban and bought a Ford Edge, The salesman stayed after closing over an hour, honest and professional.

This is the worst place I have ever taken my car to..My car has been in the shop for a whole month and two soon as I leave their shop it breaks down. I have been totally ripped off by this place..They put a enigine and starter on my car.. for about $6400 dollars total and my car breaks the very minute I leave their shop..they are a bunch of thieves ripping customers off for thousands of dollars..and when you take. your car to them they will say it's not the job they just did. it's something's sad they would do this to genuine people..who work hard for their money only to be ripped off in the end..I wish I never met this company. they make other car shops look bad..the were dishonest from day one..I gave me my first invoice and then ask for it back. The was labor was supposed to be $85 a hour but they re-did the invoice for $95..I then new this was going to be bad..I gave them the benefit of doubt..I shouldn't have. I'm furious with this place...crooks.

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.
