It was good. They were helpful especially Christina, the lady at the desk. She is always willing to go the extra mile.

It was okay. I didn't have to wait too long. They were supposed to put new valve stems in, but they didn't. They didn't charge me for it.

They are nice and friendly people. The service is good. I have been pleased with them. That's why I went back. I did buy a tire there.

They put an impact wrench on my plastic wheel covers. They damaged all four of them. They were over one hundred dollars each to replace and over five hundred in total. The first time they put the wrong ones on and I had to go back. I would never go back or recommend it to anybody.

They are friendly. It was quick and easy.

I was incredibly happy with them. I only went in because I had a low tire light turn on so I dropped my car off there. It ended up that there wasn't anything wrong and they did not charge me anything for the work they had to do. They even gave me a recommendation as to when I should get my tires rotated. I felt like they were very honest.

They were good at the work they did. They gave me what I needed. At first they didn't think they had the tire I was looking for and instead of trying to sell me a new tire which is what I would have expected any other shop to try to do, they let me leave and later they called me to inform me that the found the tire I was looking for. I liked everything about my experience there.

They were very helpful. It was pretty fast for the work that I needed done. The waiting room was very comfortable. They were very friendly.

I think I was overcharged for labor for replacing shock absorbers that I provided. I was pretty happy with the service until then.

by - Verified Customer February 20, 2016

When I first took it in to get it worked on, it was in bad condition. When I got it back it was fixed really well. I think they did a really great job. They worked with me. They actually dropped me off at work to work on my vehicle and they picked me up. I think they did a really good job. I plan on going back there to get some more work done.

Lot's of issues here. Electrical shorts, loose connections, or worn-out electrical parts could cause many of the issues you mentioned other than steering wheel wiggling. Steering wheel wiggling could be tires or worn steering parts. Diagnosis of this many items needs to be seen and inspected rather than trying to diagnose through this forum.

Electrical Diagnostic charges start at $109 per hour and can depend on how much time it takes to trace those circuits effected. If previous wiring was ever done by anyone that was not qualified to do so, finding the cause for the issue could get very complicated. If wiring is still factory installed or previously repaired by trained qualified technicians then tracing problems would probably be a lot less costly and issues can be isolated quicker using testing equipment and scan tools. We would need to visually inspect wiring condition overall, but most likely, diagnostic charges would apply unless very apparent causes are uncovered during visual inspection. We would let you know at the time of visual inspection.

We will give a free Visual Inspection of tires, brakes and steering/suspension parts. If further diagnosis is needed, you will let you know those costs before proceeding any further.

A/C diagnostic is needed beyond the initial visual inspection, we will also advise you of this before proceeding any further.

To schedule a free Visual Inspection, just give us a call at 270.842.2491 (ask for Christina)

Can you tell whether it is a seat belt alarm or a door ajar alarm?
Dash light may show you which alarm is sounding.

If you cannot tell, bring it in to Kentucky Tire Exchange in Bowling Green and we will be glad to drive and try to find out what alarm is going off. Just call and ask for Christina at 270-842-2491.

These are more than likely "companion" codes. In other words, if you check all three systems, they will all (probably) show the same trouble code(s). The answers above are all correct in that a competent shop needs to scan the system for codes in order to properly start a diagnostic procedure. We would be glad to do the scan for you if you are in the Bowling Green area. Kentucky Tire Exchange, 331 Kentucky St Bowling Green, KY 42101 (270) 842-2491 (you can ask for Christina). I hope this answer helps.
