Finding Auto Parts Online, It's Not As Tricky As You Think

We get it. Your car breaks down, and you want to get it fixed as soon as possible. Oftentimes, your car is your livelihood. Without it, you are unable to go to work or be mobile for work, or something similar to that. So, the thought of purchasing parts online rather than having your mechanic source the part for you may seem a bit tiresome and even a bit of a hassle.
What you don’t realize though is that your mechanic oftentimes will source the parts needed for your vehicle from local AND online vendors, the same places accessible to you. The mechanic will then tack on additional surcharges to create a profit margin for getting the part for you, and you will end up paying much more than if you were to purchase the part yourself...

We Have the COOLEST Customers

Ever buy something over the phone and think, “What a nice person. How can I give back”? No, probably not. Well, it’s not our first reaction either. But, here we are, writing this blog, which means we clearly have awesome customers who thought differently.

Meet Toby, our sales rep (Read more about Toby on our ‘Get To Know Your Pros’ Page). He received a call from a customer looking for a blower motor for his 2001 E320 that no one else could get except for the dealer (and you know how outrageous dealership pricing can get!)...

What to Do if Your Car Catches Fire

What to Do if Your Car Catches Fire

You never think it will happen to you. That’s what I thought anyway.

Here’s the background story: This was in late January, and my boyfriend and I were on my way home from a snowboarding day trip from Big Bear Mountain. The drive home is definitely not a short one; we were going on our fourth hour driving due to the heavy traffic of people leaving the mountain for the night. We were maybe 15 minutes out from the city of Escondido when I hear a loud thud coming from the engine of his Camry. Immediately after, the entire windshield is clouded by a huge plume of white smoke. In panic, my boyfriend pulled over to the emergency lane off the freeway, turned off the car, rushed to the hood, and before he opens it, I notice an orange glow emitting from the cracks of the hood. Crouching down, he confirmed the worst: the engine was on fire.
