I like to work on cars. I am by no means a mechanic, but I really enjoy tinkering around under the hood. My Dad on the other hand is a master mechanic, now retired. He’s so good that he has actually diagnosed problems by listening to the engine over the phone.
No to long ago I had a 1989 Chevy S-10 Blazer. When first got it I spent a lot of time under the hood, tuning it up. I’m the type of person that likes to save a penny whenever I can. The junk yard is usually my first stop, but I always call around to get the best price. Nine times out of ten AutoZone has the best price for things I can’t get at the junk yard. Several times AutoZone’s new price was cheaper than the junk yard price. Plus their technicians are always knowledgeable, friendly, and ready to help.
Today I took a battery in to get tested. The tech looked it up in the computer and saw that it was still under warranty. He tested it and the machine showed that it was dead and said to recharge and test again. He said it was so low that it would probably need to be replaced. So he went ahead and replaced it. No problems, no hassles, and no worries. Other places would probably replace items under warranty too, but AutoZone has always been a hassle free experience. Great service like that is why I shop at AutoZone.
