If any of you are lay mechanics...or the wife of one...we have found that Checker Auto Parts really does have better prices on some of their parts. The other day my husband made a phone call to check on a price for a part. First he called one of the other local part shops, where this particular part was over $200. So, he double checked, calling Checker Auto Parts, and found that they are selling the same part for nearly $100 less!
I don't have any other experience with them....but from now on...we're calling checker for parts!
