    I have tried Advance Auto parts in town for 2 items for my truck, A radiator and a master cylinder.
    Both were defective and have had to go back. The master cylinder I replaced wednesday night and it was fun pumping the brakes to get the truck to stop. I go there this morning and am told that there is no way they can get me a replacement until saturday.
    These people seem to sell crap. Any luck with any other parts suppliers?:gunsfiring:

    Take it back and get a refund, then go to a diffrent parts store and get your part. There has to hundresd of parts stors in NY.

    There is no reason to waite for your parts.

    yes some times rebuilt parts are bad.

    Thanks,
    The regional manager is driving the part out from another store. See what happens.
    The counter girl this morning said there was nothing she could do except get me the part saturday. 14 hours plowing and that is not what I wanted to hear. Next time I will go some place else.
    Thanks for the help. Sucks that I get to do this all over again tonight..

    I have found it best to stick with NAPA on most things.
    If they can get it I will use them.

    I went to Autozone for a headlight switch and after them giving me 2 bad ones then telling me they could not refund the cost because it must be my truck that is the problem. I went to the dealership and bought one and have had no problems since and after a call to corporate i got my refund on the 3rd switch.

    I will only buy the Duralast batteries from them any more and stick to the NAPA in town.
