advanced auto parts


The #10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R and #3 Corvette Racing Chevrolet Corvette C7.R win their classes at Saturday’s Advance Auto Parts SportsCar Showdown at Circuit of the Americas, the fourth straight victory for the Konica Minolta team and third straight victory for Corvette Racing.

Balance for yesterday?

My taillight socket burned out recently. My dealership wanted $84 for parts and labor (!!!). Went to Advanced Auto, no part. They called some other places, got the dealership to agree to price match on the part, it they have to order it. Went to a pull-a-part/ garage and they couldn’t find a perfect replacement- so they gave me an okay replacement for free! It probably won’t last forever but it’ll last long enough to order the part for cheaper. Then I found 25cent notebooks at Bargain Hunt.

Now I really for real am going to plan out my advanced math class.

Thank you so much for the info! I've been looking into Auto Zone and Advanced Auto Parts, and while the mid-range batteries seem to be about forty or so buckaroos past my original goal, I think I can at least save the money once I get there and spend a couple of months saving my own money to add to it. I don't want to waste the internet's charity on a bad battery, even if it means waiting a little longer! Thank you again for the boost as well as the helpful info!! 🔆💜🔆

You’re welcome! I work at one of those kinds of shops, and the Walmart battery changes we get are after three years or less. While they can be pricier, an auto parts store should offer shorter warranty batteries for a comparable price to Walmart. Batteries should last between 4-7 years if you’re buying the right one and your alternator isn’t draining them.

Just ask if there are cheaper options if they don’t offer them up front. I figure corporate stores will try to sell you the best they have, but you should be able to find a battery for 100 or less depending on the make of the car.

Good luck!
