It is my personal experience that Sears does not provide quality automobile repair.

My mother used to have a mid-eighties Buick Park Avenue. It pulled strongly to the right. She took it to Sears three times for an alignment. This never solved the problem. I finally took her car into a little family owned frame/suspension shop. They quickly identified a bent something-or-other component of the front steering system, perhapse it was a tie-rod. The replaced it and did a re-alignment for about the same price that Sears had charged just for the alignments and it was as good as new. During three alignments Sears never identified the problem which was so imediately obvious to an experienced mechanic.

Sears may be fine for an alignment itself, or other straight forward jobs, but don't count on them for actual repair that requires brain cells.
