My todays small project was changing a battery in wifes car. It started very nice on Advance Auto Parts web site. It was very easy to navigate and find a battery for our car. Pre-paid on line then drove to the store, it was waiting for us. So far so good, to my surprise Dan told me that installing the batteries is a free service. It seems that was our lucky day. Well our good humor was shattered when we saw the corrosion on the battery terminals. My first impression was that we would have to change cables because nobody can separate them from terminals. I was wrong; Dan Da Man using his skills and tools was able to pray the cables from the battery terminals. Obviously it was not the end of our problems, the terminals attached to the cables were so corroded that they started deteriorating, it was neither possible using them anymore nor replacing. I was devastated, a half hour project looks like full day in mechanic shop. I could only imagine big $$$ delear would charge me for changing these two cables plus $100 for a towing. Again I have underestimated Dan’s skills and determination. After such hard work he was able to replace the terminals and connect them to the battery. It only cost $7.19 for additional parts. I haven’t seen that kind of service for a long time. Thanks Dan you are Da Man.
Tried autozone for a "universal" part that didnt fit, returned it and called advance auto. They had the part I needed, both employees were very helpful and friendly. I was even short a couple dollars for a part that I needed and an employee covered the difference! I will not be going to autozone anymore.
Theyve got the parts you need, prices seem fine. Staff here doesnt bug you to much like other places and I have yet to have a bad experience.
Always helpfull anf friendly.
Very friendly. Good prices.
