Great service
Before anything else, I'm thankful for the level of service and speed for which my order was sitting in my mailbox. Along with this new cable and watching videos, reading blogs, it was a fairly straightforward repair. My fiancé is now able to drive her car because of a $17 cable and about an hour of my time. Highly recommended 1a auto to anyone.
