X3 on Pep Boys. Went in there once about an oil change, they said $75. I walked out and haven't gone back to one since haha.

Personally I like Advance, order online and use a promo code, then pick up in store in 30mins. I've had good luck with "TRT30", which gives you 30% off your order.

Yeah I'm trying to educate myself to do as much as possible for myself but in this case I didn't have much choice I was stuck at a gas station with the serpentine belt hanging from the side of the engine lol and if the it had been just the belt I'm sure I could've fixed it but it was the whole timing including alternator and power steering pump.

You could have done that all by yourself.. timing is inside the motor.. those are just belts to run the alternator to charge the battery and run the power steering pump.

I know but the alternator and power steering pump themselves also needed replaced and I didn't want to try to do that myself and screw it up

I was confused too haha. I've had my serpentine belt snap on the highway too, my compressor seized up. I picked up a new belt and put it on in a parking lot. I've done alternators in the parking lot too.

Unfortunately it wasn't the belt, it didn't break just came off the pulleys because they were so rusted and worn they couldn't hold it anymore. I know that putting the belt on would be pretty simple

Haha damn .. At least you were already pulling over. I was doing about 70 on the highway when it snapped, with 2 miles to the next exit!
