Everytime it quality parts and on time free shipping !!!
I greatly appreciate the in-depth how-to videos. Though I have been doing some of my own repair for a long time, the vehicles change and with that the parts and installations change. The videos show the installation of that part for the right model leaving me with no guess work. A great time saver. The parts seem to be the same quality as other parts I may have had to pay up to twice the amount buying from a local retailer who most of the time wont be able to tell me "how to" replace a part. I have had 1 A Auto parts in various vehicles for some time now and have not had problems with any. as long as I can get my parts from 1A Auto and have the video to show me replacement on my model vehicle, I will buy from them. Thanks to the staff at 1A Auto. I do recommend 1A Auto parts and videos to everyone.
