What Do Other People in My Situation Do?

Gaining insights from a relative handful of anonymous product reviews requires patience and skill at reading between the lines. Anonymous reviews of replacement auto parts are even sketchier. There are just too many parts and too many vehicle models to ever hope to get a meaningful number of useful reviews for any one part. RockAuto may have ten alternators with a choice of three amperage outputs that fit just one truck. Reviews of broad part types (alternators, thermostats...) and brands (ACDelco, Stant...) without any specific make, year, model, engine connections are likely to be nothing but vague opinions and biases.

RockAuto's heart icons () turn the extreme specificity of replacement auto parts into an advantage! A heart icon next to a part means it was ordered most frequently and returned least frequently for a specific vehicle. This is actual data from ALL customers facing similar repairs on the same vehicle. That is what makes heart icons great. They are based on data that automatically reflects the myriad things ALL customers purchasing that part for that vehicle have taken into account.

Re: What Do Other People in My Situation Do?

It also prevents buyers from actually giving a real review of the part itself. Whether it needed to be modified to work or fit, how long it lasted, overall quality, etc... A heart telling you that this is the most popular isn't that accurate of an indicator of the best possible part just because most people bought the cheap one.

Your just jealous because you can't hear the voices!

If the NASA engineers would have worried about and researched every part, the Russian flag would be on the moon.
