I go to Advance auto or autozone, no difference owned by same company. And I get 10% major parts b/c of my govt employee status. Never had problems with anything I've purchased.

In my area when O'Reilly and Napa don't have the part or list it as a "special order" item...AutoZone usually has the part in the store. Overall I prefer AutoZone and Napa.

Pep Boy is a rip off. We have those here too.

Well for me It will have to be AutoZone

Why well because O'Reiley's stuff is way to much for my Ranger parts I need a fuel pressure regulator cost there 89 at AutoZone 39 and Advance Auto Parts well I just do not like them and Napa hell everything I got off them did not last

So I am Sticking With AutoZone Cheap Good parts also because the one's done here support Ranger's as there work truck's

Can't get any of the parts you used to get back under their old banner. Freakin' sucks. Only good is Baxter's Auto Parts(not nationwide, I think just the Portland area). They can get anything and everything you want, at a decent rate. But the convienient places to get stuff have turned to sh!t.
I think we have one in Tacoma, right off I5 after the narrows bridge.

Baxters started in Washington. I got a buddy that works at the one in Centralia. If you ever go ask for Medium Rare Matt lol. They started up by Port Angeles I think if I remember right.

The best auto store hands down is the one that knows the vehicle you drive, your name and that you are the only customer when you are there. Not the phone, not the friend of theirs behind you. They all have good and weak points. Find the one that works for you.

I think I may have changed my mind after today. I had my Focus in for rear brake work. the wheel cylinders I gave them from Advance were defective. They couldn't get new ones until tomorrow, Pep boys could only get 1 in by 4:00, which I needed 2 and the 4:00 was too late, Autozone had 0.

I called Napa which is about 2.5 miles away and they had what I needed.

Napa Auto Parts for sure! where im at is by far the best store. Shmucks/Oreilly's has a bunch of dip shits..I work at the Napa and from hearing customer responses They all prefer us from Shmucks.. Me and a co worker came up with a good analogy..Shucks is where you get all the accesories. Napa is where you get all of the parts. Our parts are a much higher quality then shucks.
