If you're asking from a qualitative standpoint, and not from "what part # do I need", I'd have to say yes, NAPA stuff is generally on par (if not better in some cases) with what you'll pick up at the dealer. Even after working at a NAPA for several years in one of my past lives, I still find NAPA to be my preferred parts house. A bit pricey in some cases, but usually for a reason. And always cheaper than dealer.Just as the title states , anybody buy NAPA units or should I stick w/ OE ? Thank you, guys in advance !
Very true..The world has changed some too. I used to shop NAPA only, until I discovered that in most cases everybody is selling the same Made in India, Made in China, Made in Mexico parts! I looked at a NV4500 trans mount at NAPA, Shucks, and CarQuest: all identical, all made in India and by the part labels, by the same factory, but different store labels on box.
