Prices from retail locations in upstate New York; expect some variation in other markets, and between franchise locations.

As our hypothetical vehicle, we selected a Honda Civic EX sedan, one of the most common cars on the road (prices may vary for another make or model). Our shopping list contained 20 stock items an owner may need to maintain such a vehicle driven under average circumstances. When available we included less expensive house brands such as Carquest, sold by Advance Auto Parts, and Duralast, the AutoZone equivalent, and tried to compare equivalent brands across stores. We didn't compare high-end performance parts, something most motorists don't need, and cheap, no-name products.

In most cases, prices were within a few dollars of each other across retailers. Two automotive repair items on our shopping list had the biggest impact on the total cost: a fuel pump and a replacement clutch. If you need a fuel pump module, the slam-dunk choice is O'Reilly Auto Parts, at just $ An Import Direct-branded fuel pump module for our Civic was priced nearly $80 less than the closest competitor and a whopping $ less than AutoZone, which topped the charts at $ for the "same" part. Just keep in mind that all vehicle fuel pumps may not be created equal. We priced out the cheapest pumps that meet California automotive emission standards (which are stricter than federal). And while AutoZone can't compete on best price, it's possible that its model might trump others on top performance. For a replacement clutch set, on the other hand, AutoZone was the cheapest of the group. Its Duralast kit was $34 less expensive than the next-cheapest option, a PowerTorque clutch set sold at O'Reilly.

But for general-maintenance items (wiper blades, oil, antifreeze, batteries, etc.), prices across stores fell much more in line, with Napa Auto Parts eking out only a small price advantage, thanks to a store-brand car battery ( CCA) that was more than $20 cheaper than batteries offered by competitors (without the battery, there was a spread of only about $ between Napa, still the top all-around lowest, and Advance Auto Parts, the highest for maintenance products). We noticed some seemingly arbitrary differences in price when the same exact product was in stock in all or most of the stores. This was true for headlight bulbs, motor oil, cylinder heads, spark plugs, a code reader, and oxygen sensors.

Shipping and Pickup

Price isn't the only important factor in choosing an auto parts store. Convenience plays a big role. All the stores we surveyed let consumers buy online and have items in stock shipped to their home or business (with some exceptions for noncontiguous states and territories or APO/FPO addresses). Napa Auto Parts charges a flat $ for UPS ground service. The other three retailers we surveyed offer free shipping on online orders above a certain amount. AutoZone even ships online orders overnight (although not all items and ZIP codes qualify for next-day shipping). With the others, free delivery is limited to standard ground shipping. Advance Auto Parts has the lowest minimum, at $ AutoZone and O'Reilly Auto Parts require a $35 minimum.

All the chains have policies that offer free shipping for items ordered online for pickup at a bricks-and-mortar store, so shop location may wind up being the deciding factor in choosing a retailer. With over 6, locations in the United States alone, Napa Auto Parts is most likely to have a shop near you. Second is AutoZone, with about 5, stores nationwide.

Keep in mind that many retailers do not ship antifreeze or batteries, because they contain hazardous materials. These items must be picked up at a local store.

Return Policies

Mistakes happen, and retailers' return policies range from fairly liberal to pretty restrictive. Napa Auto Parts is the most accommodating shop, allowing online buyers to return unopened or defective products within 30 days without incurring additional shipping charges. Parts purchased online can also be returned to participating Napa Auto Parts locations.

Other retailers also accept online returns at their stores, but consumers are on the hook for return-shipping costs unless there's a problem with the product or a mistake on the retailer's end. For return policies, O'Reilly Auto Parts has the most generous window: There is no time limit for returning new, unopened items. AutoZone imposes a day time limit on returns, and Advance Auto Parts sets a deadline of 45 days. Also, while all retailers reserve the right to reject or charge restocking fees for returns of special orders or custom items, Advance Auto Parts publishes a fairly long list of items that can't be returned at all. From our shopping list, that includes fuel pumps and oxygen (O2) sensors.

Some stock items that are recyclable or can be rebuilt carry what's known as a "core charge," a deposit to ensure that a consumer returns the old part when it's time for a replacement. Two items on our list, alternators and batteries, along with brake shoes and water pumps, are among the items that carry this charge. Core prices can vary widely and sometimes be quite substantial. For example, AutoZone levies a core charge of $62 on a Duralast remanufactured alternator. At the other end of the spectrum, Advance Auto Parts' Carquest alternator has a core price of just $ Whether the amount is large or small, you'll definitely want to recoup that sum — and, of course, do your part to help the environment.

In most cases, a consumer has to return the used core to a retail store to avoid paying a shipping charge. Napa is the exception, allowing online customers who purchase a replacement to ship the old part free of charge, as long as they use box the replacement component came in and mail it back within 30 days of receiving the new one.

Perks and Loyalty Programs

All the retailers offer customer-loyalty programs, although they aren't all equally rewarding.

  • Advance Speed Perks: $5 credit on next purchase of $20 or more after spending $30; $20 credit on next purchase of $50 or more after spending $
  • AutoZone Rewards: $20 reward after 5 purchases of $20 or more.
  • Napa Rewards: 1 point per dollar spent; $5 credit with points.
  • O'Reilly O'Rewards: 1 point per dollar spent; $5 credit with points.

Each retailers' rewards program policies vary. Advance Auto Parts Speed Perks, AutoZone Rewards, and Napa Rewards apply to both in-store and online purchases. O'Reilly's O'Rewards applies only to in-store sales. Each retailer also provides bonuses to rewards program members, like exclusive discount coupons and invitations to special shop events, for example. Check their websites for details on reward redemption and exclusions, as well as additional perks.

Price Matching

If you're looking for the most generous price-matching policy, Advance Auto Parts is probably your best bet. The company's guarantee claims Advance "will match the price of any identical or comparable product available the same day at any competitor's store or website." O'Reilly Auto Parts, on the other hand, does not offer price matching with online retailers but says it does for in-store sales. Napa Auto Parts and AutoZone do not have explicit price-matching policies on their websites' support pages, and consumer feedback indicates that experiences in stores can vary.


Each of these retailers offers some type of discount, usually around 10%, for members of the military. Other groups that enjoy discount programs include Uber drivers at Advance Auto Parts, for example, and AAA members get a discount at Napa Auto Parts.

Customer Service & Reviews

Cheapism read through reviews at Consumer Affairs to get an idea of how vehicle owners feel about each of the retailers’ customer service, stock, prices, online services, and more. Taking the averages as a whole, AutoZone comes out on top with the highest percentage of four- and five-star reviews while O’Reilly had the lowest percentage of above-average reviews. Anecdotally, in NAPA’s case, it seems even happy customers aren’t % pleased.  

AutoZone: Out of reviews submitted in the last year, two-thirds gave the auto parts retailer four or five stars, for an aggregate average of almost 4 stars. The majority of the 5-star reviews focus on the helpfulness of AutoZone’s employees, describing them as kind, patient, and taking the time needed to address any issues. With 1-star reviews, complaints tend to center on unreliable shipping methods, with online customers receiving parts for their cars much later than expected.

Advance Auto Parts: Advance scores somewhat lower than AutoZone, with an average of just over stars. Of the reviews submitted over the last 12 months, however, about 60% award the automotive parts shop 4 or 5 stars. As with AutoZone, the majority of the top reviews from car owners praise employees’ willingness to help. The gripes addressed in negative reviews vary widely: some ding Advance for poorly stocked and poorly run stores, while others point to issues with the website—from basic functionality to receiving incorrect parts. More than a few reviews complain of warranties that were not honored.  

NAPA Auto Parts: Inexplicably, the largest of the four retailers currently has only 26 Consumer Affairs reviews in total. But just under two-thirds of the posted reviews award the retailer 4 or 5 stars, for an average of about stars overall. Top reviews give thumbs up to NAPA’s low prices; critical feedback cites poor customer service and rude employees. Several consumers who’d used the shop’s automotive repair services claim jobs were botched. Interestingly, even many of the top reviews are tempered with caveats along the lines of, “I like this store but ….”

O’Reilly Auto Parts: About 57% of the reviews that O’Reilly has received on Consumer Affairs in the last year give the retailer 4 or 5 stars. Again, top reviews credit knowledgeable employees willing to put extra time and effort into consultations regarding parts or repairs. Poor reviews run the gamut here, too:  from an inability to return items for various reasons, not reimbursing labor after store employees sold or ordered incorrect parts, to general employee miscommunication. 

Other Auto Parts Retailers

It can pay to compare prices at other stores, especially for non-vehicle-specific parts and gear. For example, an Actron CPC universal code reader (which allows do-it-yourself mechanics to access a car's diagnostic system) costs nearly $70 at Advance Auto Parts or Napa Auto Parts but can be purchased on Amazon for less than $ Other stores to check:

Orleans Auto Supply stores acquired by NAPA Auto Parts

ORLEANS — Salesman Mike McCaffrey was the lone employee inside the Orleans Auto Supply Store on Route 6A on Aug.  He was putting up a sign in the window alerting customers to a change in ownership.  

Orleans Auto Supply, part of the Cape Cod business community for 48 years, was no more. Its locations in Orleans, Hyannis, Dennis Port and Falmouth, which had provided customers with everything from oil filters to windshield wiper blades, batteries to carburetor cleaner, air fresheners to headlights, were shuttering.   

But Orleans Auto Supply isn't disappearing altogether.

The sign in the Orleans store promised an expanded product line with the same team and the same level of customer service. All staff and inventory from the store were being consolidated at the NAPA Auto Parts store on nearby Nells Way.

Orleans Auto Supply stores on the Cape will become NAPA franchises. 

The acquisition was effective Sept. 1, and the combined staff and service teams will remain the same, according to a press release.

Bill Drinan acquired the Orleans Auto Supply stores in Orleans, Falmouth and Hyannis. Those locations include Bearse’s Way in Hyannis, Barnstable Road in Hyannis, Worcester Court in Falmouth and 3 Nells Way in Orleans.  

The Route 6A location in Orleans will no longer be an auto parts store.

Todd West bought Orleans Auto Supply’s location on Main Street in Dennis Port.  

Households and individual consumers are the largest markets for the auto parts industry according to IBISWorld, a market research company. But motor vehicle dealerships rely on the stores, too.  

Jay Goodwin, owner and president of Hyannis Honda, said his service department relies on parts stores on occasion. If a customer is concerned about price, they can get less expensive parts by using aftermarket parts, rather than manufacturer parts. 

Aftermarket refers to replacement parts and accessories that are not made by the original manufacturer, such as Honda or Chevrolet.

"We don’t like to do it, but we do what we have to do to help customers get their cars fixed in a reasonable amount of time,” Goodwin said. 

Goodwin said his dealership used other parts stores, but prioritized Orleans Auto Supply. He called the staff “good local people.”   

“All parts stores have their different niches, strengths and weaknesses with the parts they carry and availability, according to Goodwin. “We buy from all depending on what we’re looking for,” he said. “They are all competitive on price, but they (Orleans Auto Supply) really win on service.” 

The US automotive aftermarket is projected at $ billion in , according to Hedges & Company, an automotive digital marketing agency. And the company cites increased do-it-yourself activity in , a promising sign for all Cape auto parts stores. 

After 30 years in the automotive parts industry, three of them at Orleans Auto Supply, McCaffrey was a little sad to post that he still loves to see people driving old cars. He said he has nothing but respect for the good mechanics in the area.

"There are a lot of good mechanics, a lot of knowledgeable people," he said. "The same people, the same service — that’s what we’ve been telling all our customers

NAPA signage is expected to be up at the stores within weeks.
