Ever since AAP and Oreilly updated their websites, I find them somewhat cantankerous. Somewhat frustrating for me because I like to research what I want before I walk through the door.

Simple searches yield "no results found." Also, I sometimes have to click more than once to select something. On top of that, I may be going to a drop down menu and all the channels (add vehicle for example) and then I may just get kicked out and have to restart.

I've always considered NAPA's site to be somewhat of a pain, but it's not so bad now.. AZ's looks to be the same to me although I don't go there much.

Surely it's not just me? crzy

I haven't used O'Reillys much since the update (thankfully haven't had the need!) but the few times I did it worked as good as it did before.
NAPA's site has always been a pain. It never saves my location, then you enter your vehicle info, then you search and it makes you choose a vehicle again.

It's not just you. It would be an interesting poll to rate the websites of the national part store chains: AZ, AAP, O'Reilly's, Pep Boys, NAPA for simplicity, PITA factor, etc.

I concur.

That is why I use Amazon or Autoanything.com for online shopping. Brick and mortar places usually do not focus on websites as much as they should.

In comparison to sites like Rock Auto most of the parts store sites are pretty awful.

This is true. Every time I walk into Oreilly, I have to wait because the phone won't stop ringing.

So is NAPA still advertising their Peak oil for a super low price? They haven't honored that for months.
I use the O'Reilly web site to verify what brand they are selling and then see if they can sell it to me.
However, if I'm not in a hurry, odds are I'll buy from RockAuto or Amazon.

I also cant figure their sites out. I go in circles choosing a store. It just keeps returning to that screen even after I chose my store.

I agree that AAP's new site is not as good as the old one. AZ's is alright; NAPA has always been straight garbage.

I'm baffled as to why they are so awful, except RA.
O'Reilly's was may favorite until they 'improved' it. At least they brought the compatibility tab back.
NAPAONLINE has always been inexcusably bad, kind of like my local stores.

It does do this!


Strange, it saves our vehicle and location when I use it?

I also don't like AAP's new website. Way too much jumping around the site for what used to be done in 1 or 2 clicks. I've already started using Pep Boys a little bit more often.

NAPA always was a pain; it remembers my cars but never the engine size. AZ is ok but prices could be better. Don't have O'Rielly's near me.
