I do most of my repairs and order all my parts from here.... my auto mechanic does the same....

Their web site is not great but works fine.

You need to know the details of your vehicle prior to ordering

Rockauto always has a 5% coupon going, not exactly a slickdeal.

The fact that they charge shipping and tax really bites.

Great parts for a lot less. The core return shipping is not bad. Never been over $10 for 4 calipers for my Tundra.

My issue with them is the calipers sent for my rear brakes used coarse threads vs fine which came with the truck. I wanted to alert them of this minor flaw but it's easier getting ahold of Putin then someone to help. I just bought stainless bolts and called it a day.

If they didn't charge shipping it would just be added into their prices so probably wouldn't save much anyways. It's tough to avoid taxes compared to a couple years ago!

Shipping to a commercial address is cheaper. Save couple more bucks by getting it sent to work.

Even with tax and shipping, their prices are 1/4 or less than say Advance/Autozone/Napa.

And yes, they perpetually have a 5% off coupon available on some coupon websites if you search for it.

The 5% is literally always going. I have used RockAuto since 2011, and only had minor issues. ( paid for overnight shipping only to receive it days later) Also be careful if you need to cancel or return anything. They charge crazy re-stocking fees at what seems like their discretion.

I like RockAuto but I've done countless projects by ordering from Amazon on Wed during my lunch break and then having what I need on my doorstep on Friday.

For RockAuto, I find that I can offset this by ordering a considerable amount all at once - their prices can't be beat.

For example, I have a high performance radiator that I got in the spring from an AWD that's waiting to be installed, but to buy the rest of the things from Amazon would cost me more. Instead, I ordered a fan clutch, water pump, thermostat, gaskets, bolts and both upper and lower hoses from RockAuto. Even after juggling items (it helps to order from like warehouses), I still came out ahead on price.

Sure, if you're only buying $2 wiper blades (yes, they have them), then doesn't make sense to pay their shipping. If you're ordering 5-10 items, some of them heavy, then you can surely come out ahead. .

Shipping usually breaks the deal... the last few times I tried to order from rockauto, amazon usually had it for the same price and you can get it in 1-2 days.

Their parts catalog works really well though.
