ADVANCE AUTO PARTS

Advance Auto Parts is a name that many people recognize and trust. As a company they have been around over 75 years and have 3,400 stores nationwide. They service both the do-it-yourself and professional installers providing aftermarket auto parts, batteries, accessories, and maintenance items. The list of products range from replacement parts, engine parts, brakes, batteries, performance parts, accessories and tools for your garage.

Advance Auto Parts is not only an online store, they also have locations nationwide. Because of this, consumers have the option of in-store pick-up, which is free of shipping charges. Your order generally is ready in 1 hour to be picked up from the store. If you choose to have your order shipped to you and your order is over $75, the order ships for free. If you are not completely satisfied with your order and you need to return a product, you have up to 90-days from your date of purchase to return the item to either a retail store or mail to the return center.

The website is easy to locate what you are looking for. There is much more to the website that just ordering auto parts. There is an Advance Know-How section that has podcasts, articles, videos and brochures that help the consumer with many different auto projects and problems. Recently Advance Auto Parts released a new section to the website called "Your Garage". This service offers the following features:

  • Service alerts to warn you of standard services your car needs at set mileage
  • Diagnose problems to figure out what is wrong with your vehicle
  • Get an estimate of the approximate cost of the service needed
  • Find a mechanic if you would rather have a professional perform the maintenance for you in your locale
  • Recall notifications
  • Service history
  • Vehicle prices and values to find out what your current vehicle is worth
  • Cost of ownership to find out how much you can expect to pay to maintain your vehicle.

While pricing is not as competitive, this is a full service company and the convenience of returning the part locally is a definite plus. Their customer service representatives are knowledgeable and friendly at 1-877-886-4605. Advance Auto Parts provides a strong option for your auto parts needs.

OE PARTS HQ

OE Parts specializes in OEM (Original Equipment) auto parts for GM and Ford vehicles that are the same quality that a car dealership or a factory trained independent service center would use nationwide. These auto parts used to only be available through high priced source, but OE Parts has made the auto parts more affordable at wholesale prices and quickly available being shipped right to your door. They specialize in GM models such as Chevrolet, Pontiac, Buick, Oldsmobile, Cadillac, Saturn and Ford vehicles from Ford, Mercury and Lincoln. They carry The Genuine AC Delco / AC Delco, and Genuine Motorcraft Parts.

Any order over $75 qualifies for free shipping and a flat shipping fee of $6.99 for orders under $75. With 32 OEM warehouses coast to coast, delivery time is usually 2 business days or less for in stock products. There is a 30-day return policy for any unused, unmarked, unopened products. You must contact the company for an RMA approval. The website appearance is decent at best. An average look that doesn't catch your eye but isn't too busy either.

In our original search for brake pads for a 1997 3.2 TL Acura the search results said they did not carry brake pads for products other than GM vehicles. As we navigated through the site, we stumbled upon another area that did carry a Brake Disc Hardware kit that would meet our needs. This left us less confident in OE Parts HQ's website.

Due to the poor searching abilities, the website appearance and the significantly higher prices part (almost $50 more expensive than the same exact product at another store) this site received the lowest rating overall.

Before you purchase your next auto parts online, it's important to consider several factors:

  • Selection.  Does the company offer the auto parts that you're looking for? Do they supply auto parts from several manufactures, or only one?
  • Return Policy.  If you buy the wrong auto parts, or they don't fit, will you be able to return the auto parts and get your money back?
  • Price.  How do the prices of the auto parts compare between competitors?
