My alternator failed and my car would not start. I couldn’t even shift it into neutral to move it. My mechanic, and another auto repair shop close to me could not accommodate me for at least a week. So, when Automotive Specialists of Austin said they could accommodate me right away, I was leery, wondering why they were not as busy as the other two. But both Eddie and Doug were very good to talk to and reassuring. They had the car fixed by the end of the day. So far, four days out, everything is working well. It is hard to assess the quality of work done, since it is hard to see and assess what was done and know it was done very well, when you yourself don’t know about the internal workings of a car, leave alone my specific Hyundai Genesis. But the car runs now, the people I interacted with were very nice, and the work was completed within a reasonable time period. Then is the issue of the cost of repair. I Googled what it costs to replace an alternator on a Hyundai Genesis 2010 and I saw estimates anywhere between $500 and $725 for a Genesis. It cost me $740 for parts and labor, $765 including taxes. So, it was at the higher end of that range. But each car is different as are the different year Genesis models, and it is hard to say what my mechanic would have charged me. But then, I would have had to wait a week without a car and there is obviously a value to be attached to that. So, all in all, I was fine with the cost of repair as it seemed reasonable given the circumstances, along with the fact that the shop is a walkable 2 miles from my house.
