Gaining insights from a relative handful of anonymous product reviews requires patience and skill at reading between the lines. Anonymous reviews of replacement auto parts are even sketchier. There are just too many parts and too many vehicle models to ever hope to get a meaningful number of useful reviews for any one part. RockAuto may have ten alternators with a choice of three amperage outputs that fit just one truck. Reviews of broad part types (alternators, thermostats...) and brands (ACDelco, Stant...) without any specific make, year, model, engine connections are likely to be nothing but vague opinions and biases.

RockAuto's heart icons (
) turn the extreme specificity of replacement auto parts into an advantage! A heart icon next to a part means it was ordered most frequently and returned least frequently for a specific vehicle. This is actual data from ALL customers facing similar repairs on the same vehicle. That is what makes heart icons great. They are based on data that automatically reflects the myriad things ALL customers purchasing that part for that vehicle have taken into account.

I have been using RockAuto for many years. Always a good experience.
Very helpful info for the ones that were not familiar with it already.

There are downsides of course. An example would be two headlight assemblies for my 2003 RAV4. Popular item replacement so I bought the left & right units.
Everything is fine except the oxidation of the lens (replaces earlier this year). Kinda bummed but it does have lifetime warranty so I will make a claim.

Other than that one issue, after many years of purchases, I will still purchase from RockAuto.

Just wish us MY19’s have more options than what’s currently available (air filters and such).
