You ever have that luck just like me where you fix one thing on your car and another one shows up? It always happens to me. Earlier today I took my car to Firestone for my lifetime alignment/rotate/balance, and they noticed my driver's side CV axle boot is busted and therefore needs a new CV axle. Bummer. They want a little over $200 to fix that, so I said screw that and decided to find a cheaper shop to take it into. Well as luck turns out, we have a local shop called VJ's, who also sells parts and automotive products just like Auto Zone and Advance Auto Parts. They have an extremely good reputation, and they've been around for over 40 years, so I'd trust them 100%. They get OEM parts or parts that exceed OEM specifications, and they sell them to you at cost, meaning they make no profit off them. Anyway, they want $169 in all to replace my CV axle, which I think is an excellent deal, seeing that the part itself is $69, and labor there runs $100 per hour. What do you guys think? Oh, and I asked about a timing belt change. They said they use Gates brand timing belts, and they'd do a timing belt and water pump change for a total cost of around $400. Not a bad deal, eh?
