OE Parts HQ

OE PARTS HQ Visit Site

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?
