OT--Figured out what NAPA stands for...

Not the Apropriate Part AGAIN!

Sorry, had to share!

Re: OT--Figured out what NAPA stands for...

Need Another PArts STORE!!! It is ever so true here in Ketchikan, napa is the only place (other than a ford or a chevy dealer) to get parts. Their selection sucks, they take the jaws of life to pry into your wallet and take everything you have, and you say the word Jeep, and you may as well be talking swaheelie (ain't got a clue how to spell that!)

NAPA = Never Any Parts Available.

Re: OT--Figured out what NAPA stands for...

wow i am surprised to hear this? where i am now and where i lived before napa was the only place you could buy parts and they are always in stock. In my town we have a number of parts stores autozone, advance, oreilys, auto value, etc... If you compare brand for brand napa is generaly lower priced. I have generaly found their parts guys are a little more insightful too. i hate to sound like a napa salesman (because i'm not)but gotta speak the truth the way i see it? you have caught me by surprise

Re: OT--Figured out what NAPA stands for...

i stopped using NAPA a few years ago. When they started selling junk to keep up with advance and auto zone it was over for me. They can get a better part but they never have it in stock. For me its the dealer on anything late model. For the jeep i use a small part house that carries both the cheap crap and the good stuff. I may pay a little more, but i have never had to bring something back.

NAPA= National Association of Perverts and Alcoholics (per NAPA counter-man).

Actually they have the regional distribution center here in Atlanta, if you need something today a 15 minute trip will generally get it for you.

Re: OT--Figured out what NAPA stands for...

I dunno, guys. While NAPA pretty much sucks the big one, it's still a ton better than autozone or pepboys or any of the other chains... especially if you're dealing with an independently owned one.. they've never let me down. True, I pay more for the part, but I get the right part every time, and they can typically get it for me within the same day....Just my 2c

Re: OT--Figured out what NAPA stands for...

Funny, Around here, NAPA are the guys that know their stuff and have the parts.. only thing is, they are priced higher than everywhere else. but all you have to do is price shop and tell them that AutoZone or whoever has it for $x.xx and they match or beat it.....

the other parts stores around here are pretty much idiots... actually had one guy try to convince me and WHTTRASH that his TJ had Rack and Pinion steering...... [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
