I wanted to bring to your attention an incredibly useful tool in the RockAuto.co.uk catalog that is called the RockAuto Repair Index: http://www.rockauto.com/repairindex/.
As the “What's this?” section explains, the RockAuto Repair Index automatically queries the millions of parts applications in the RockAuto.com catalog, compares the minimum cost of the most commonly replaced parts and summarizes the results. Comparing the cost of hundreds of parts could not be faster or easier.
The tool can also be a lot of fun. Use the tool to back yourself up if you and a friend have an ongoing Ford vs. Chevy or Toyota vs. Volkswagen argument. Hunt around long enough and you can usually even find a vehicle comparison to justify past purchases. “Look darling, parts for my Camaro Z28 only cost 67% of what parts for a Chevy Metro cost. I told you I bought the Z28 because it was a practical car!”
Before buying a car or truck or recommending vehicles to family or friends, it is always a good idea to check the cost of replacement parts. Every car is eventually going to need new filters, hoses, struts, brakes, water pump, etc. An accident might necessitate a new fender, tail lamp assembly, radiator and other parts.
We hope you find the RockAuto Repair Index Tool useful and enjoyable.
