I usually take my cars to Kings Auto, on 95th & Antioch. They are very competent and I have no complaints…except that I spend a lot of money there. They find stuff, they fix it, it is expensive. What starts at $500 ends up $800. What starts at $800 ends up $1200. Nothing happens for less than $500. I’m not angry, I know my car needs works and work is expensive. But I’m always going ouch after getting my car back.
So I’ve been looking around for an alternative, and I may have finally found one:
Your Parts Or Mine
13314 W 89th Terr
Lenexa, KS, 66215
These are a couple of brothers who work out of their home. They have a backlog … I had to wait a week until they could get me in … but I dropped the car off the night before, they worked on it the next day and got everything done, and I picked it up that night. The parts were straightforward and the labor was reasonable.
So far so good. The truth is that I didn’t check out their equipment, so I don’t know what they can and cannot do. But it has been a long time since I spent $500 on my car and felt that I got a good deal.
