Is Amazon an Okay Place to Order Car Parts

Certainly, Amazon is a reputed marketplace that provides shoppers with a convenient and easy place to purchase quality auto parts. While most car parts sold by Amazon are from trusted sources, it can be hard for you to know if you’re getting the correct item for your car or truck since you are not dealing directly with an automobile service center.

Can You Bring Your Own Auto Parts to The Car Dealership?

You can always bring your own auto parts to a car dealer. However, the car dealer can neither issue warranty on the purchased part, nor will they be able to guarantee its performance. It is highly recommended to get your vehicle checked by a certified service center at a local auto dealership before purchasing any auto parts for installation. The certified technician will also diagnose the actual problem and suggest the required replacement part, if necessary.

Who Installs Aftermarket Parts?

Bring your aftermarket car or truck part to a local dealership for installation. Before installation, a service technician will check the aftermarket vehicle part to see if it is suitable for your car, truck, or SUV.
