Do you want more auto parts options for your vehicle repairs? The days of shopping at one or two local auto parts suppliers, seeing only limited quantities and brands, are a thing of the past. Today, a number of online auto parts stores make a concerted effort of getting the best, most cost effective auto parts in your hands, in as short a time as possible.

Online auto parts stores allow you to select from a variety of auto parts brands that you can trust. Also, those people that are familiar with buying after-market auto parts understand that not all manufacturers create the right fit. The need to return auto parts is going to occur once in a while. That's why it's important to shop at an auto parts store that provides a no-hassle auto parts return policy.

Parts Train

PARTS TRAIN Visit Site

Parts Train has over 1 million products in stock to meet your car needs. Whether you need a new oil filter, an alternator, new brake pads, fuel injector, or engine parts, Parts Train has what you need. Most every basic and performance car product that a consumer would need can be found here. The auto parts offered are not limited to certain makes; they have wide range including Jaguar, Lexus, BMW, Ford, Chevy, Porsche, Volvo and many more.

Free shipping is offered for orders over $50. Most orders ship within 24 to 48 hours and are delivered ground, so the consumer will receive them within 2 to 7 business days, which is pretty standard for most websites reviewed. Parts Train stands behind their prices in that they have a Lowest Price Guarantee. If you find a competitor advertising the exact product cheaper there is an online form for you to fill out and they will match or beat the competitors pricing.

There is a 30-day return policy from date of purchase but you will be charged a 20% restocking fee for the product returned. There are a few items that are non-returnable, including service manuals, CD ROMs, special-order products, custom-made products, and auto body parts.

The website is well organized and easy to find what you are looking for. There are a few different ways to search for the product you need, either choosing a keyword or part number search, or searching by your specific vehicle's make, model and year.

We liked the search capabilities and return policy but were less excited about the restocking fee.

Streetside Auto

STREETSIDE AUTO Visit Site

Street Side Auto has an expert staff and management team that represent years of experience in the specialty automotive aftermarket. This team has relationships with some manufacturers that go back as far as 30 years. These relationships and experience give the consumer the security of knowing they are dealing with real hands-on all-American automotive enthusiasts, who have the answers the consumer needs to help them select the right product for their needs.

Initially the website has an orderly appearance with sharp colors and layout. But the search capabilities left us frustrated. The page that lists the products does not list the prices. To find the prices the consumer must click through to multiple other pages. A very annoying feature that this website has is that every time the consumer clicks on an item to receive more information, a pop-up screen shows up that has the consumer input information about the make, model, etc. of the vehicle that you are looking for the part for to be verified by the consumer. Just to find out the price on a product you must click through many screens, as the pop-up window appears each time you navigate to a different page. This was time consuming and would prevent many from purchasing from this website, as there are many other great options available through other websites reviewed.

Free ground shipping is offered for orders over $50. If the order is deemed an oversized item, free shipping does not apply and a $99 flat rate is assessed to the order, no matter how large the shipment is. If a tire is ordered, a $25 fee per tire is assessed for shipping with the maximum fee of $99. Auto parts may be returned up to 60-days from date of purchase. All items must in original condition to be returned and will be assessed a $10 restocking fee. There are a few products that are not returnable, please check out the website for the extensive list of products. Most auto parts are warranted by the manufacturer, usually for 90 days from the date of purchase, unless specified otherwise.

Unfortunately, this poorly built website takes away from any positives in return policy or selection. We believe that most would be too frustrated to complete their purchase.

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?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best auto parts stores available today. We hope these reviews help you find the auto parts you need quickly and easily!
