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.

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.

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?
