Good Purchase?

April 19th, 2010 at 08:02 am

Our van needed an alignment because it was pulling to one side and three out of four tires were showing wear on the sides. I was notified of this about a month ago at the Honda dealership. At the time, I declined the work.

We decided to take the van to another auto store for the alignment since it would be less expensive than the quote from the dealership. We bought a lifetime alignment for double their normal charge. Out of pocket cost: $151.

I would have spent just a little more at the dealership for the tire rotation and alignment. That would have been a one time charge.

Do you think it was a good idea to get the lifetime alignment service? It is a national chain. We expect to have the van for quite some time.

    I think that since all you need is two alignments to pay for itself, it is priced great. Basically you prepaid for your next one and every and all after that are free.

    As you said it is a national chain so even if you move around you can still get it done. I saw a TV special on a lady that always bought lifetime parts/repairs on her vehicle and it sure worked out great for her.

    Yes I think it is a good idea. We buy our tires at Les Schwab because they rotate them for free and the tires are usually a good price too.
