Q: Battery replacement at dealer or regular auto store?

asked by on

I have a dead battery, I think. I can jump the car and it starts...so should I take it to the dealer? I know cost to replace at a dealership is a lot more than a local mechanic. Is it a simple fix where I can save money going local, or due to the technology of the audi, am I better off just paying more and having the dealership handle it? Thanks

Q: Can I add keyless entry to a car?

Some economy late model vehicles, like the Sentra you are considering, are not equipped with keyless entry. I highly doubt the owner lost the remotes. It is possible to buy an aftermarket keyless entry system and have it installed.
