RockAuto

I like the fact that the carry many different manufacturers of the same part. Rocks descriptions are good making it easier to get the correct part. Whats really cool is they offer kits, for ex. they offer a brake kit that has 2 rotors, pads at a reduced price.

The cons are: if you order a few different parts, they come from different places and each place adds shipping.

Tricks, you can get an oil filter for $2.5, but 4 bucks to ship, so order 4 at a time, this works well for items that are small and lite.

Their loyalty is to the seller.
I ordered 2 things from tidebuy and they sent 1 item, the seller sent an email to me saying it was out of stock and I could get something else or get a refund. I asked for a refund, which I never got. I put a claim in and I told them I have the email tidebuy sent.
For paypal this was open and shut, tidebuy provided a tracking number for the 1 item so it is case closed. I put in a case with discover card and they based their decision on paypals. I have since dropped Discover card and use paypal when a seller will not take a credit card.
My problem is I like ebay and there are a few sellers that take paypal only. I tried to avoid these sellers if possible.

They watch out for both parties, I have bought and sold on ebay for years. There are some bad buyers and sellers, but you have the opportunity to rate people and can see who to stay away from.

Mostly every order I get the next day. They have decent phone service when I had to ask questions. I have order several car stereos and installation equipment over the years.
I like it because I can get the wire harnesses as well.
