Quality Auto Service On Kirkwood Highway Is Now Closed. What Are My Warranty Options?

Recently, it seems like auto repair shops are closing all around the Prices Corner, Wilmington area. Another long time center, Quality Auto Service, has closed its doors effective October 28th, 2019. The building located in the Goodwill Shopping Center (Checkers Burger Drive Thru) was originally a quick lube center franchise "Grease Monkey". That changed over the decades when other oil changes centers entered the market, namely, Jiffy Lube.  As time went on, Quality Auto Service became more of a full service auto center and specialized in Jasper Engine Replacements. They continued to serve the Prices Corner area for the past twenty plus years.  We'd like to wish the best to the family of Quality Auto Service all the best in any future endeavors. For all of the clients and guests of Quality, we'd like to invite you to experience our first class service at ... read more

My Local Sears Auto Service Center Is Closed. Where Can I Go?

The iconic brand, Sears, has been going through major changes over the past 4 years. All of their major assets including the DieHard™ brand has been extinguished or sold off. Now, the local Sears Auto Center located in Prices Corner, has closed.

As of October 19th, they were ordered to close their doors.  Buckley's had a working relationship with the management and service team at Sears Prices Corner over the past 5 years. They would refer us to their base of clients for check engine lights and diagnostics, while we would refer them for front end alignments. However, with their closing, it is leaving a fairly large gap in service for many local residents and small fleets that had depended on the Sears team for vehicle maintenance.  To those many residents, fleets and moto ... read more

Should I Use My Volvo To Jump Start A Car?

You want to be a good Samaritan and help a friend right? They have a car that won't start but you have cables and fairly robust car to handle it. So you think.  This Volvo S40 took a major shock when the cables being used were not correct and not correctly install causing a massive short and fire inside the engine compartment.  You can see by the damage that using the Volvo to jump starting the friends car was not the best thing to do. Unfortunately, the insurance company totaled the vehicle because the fire severely damaged some of the main ignition and electronic module components.  If you really have a need to jump start a car, invest in a jump box. They come in various sizes and shapes to fit comfortably in the trunk or even the glove box area. Use it instead of your car and that way your ride is protected.  To see the real damage caused by this unfortunate situation, take a look at our YouTube video.  https ... read more
