I have been a mechanic for many years. I used to buy Napa Auto Parts almost always. I felt the parts were good quality, although more expensive than others. It does not pay to install poor quality parts on a car, they come back, and bite you! Unfortunately, a few years ago it seems Napa changed their policy on quality. This happened around the time they totally changed the on-line site. Around the same time, I started looking at Rock Auto on-line. Rock Auto offers each part by a few different manufacturers, quality levels, and prices. I started noticing that despite Napa still charging higher prices, they were now supplying the cheapest, lowest quality parts instead of the better quality they were known for. Given that, why would a person order from Napa, when Rock Auto is surprisingly lower priced, and you have a quality level choice . Napa seems to be riding on their previous well known name, while keeping the prices artificially high.
Some prime examples of this is, I purchased a starter solenoid, (eckland, Napa's electrical brand), as a preventative measure. The third start-up, after installing, the solenoid froze in the on position, with key off, and kept the starter spinning and engaged until I could unhook one battery terminal. Burned up the relay, starter, and a couple wires. I purchased a rebuilt alternator, took it from the box, and turned it, it felt rough turning, as if there was dirt in the bearing race or defective bearing components. I purchased Napa's best fuel pump, and it was very noisy from day one. I purchased a set of Napa Branded, 2 ton each, jack stands. One of them had a defective casting that would not allow the stop to lock in place. Although it seemed it locked, when weight was applied, it fell. I purchased rebuilt Ford Front calipers from Napa, and with in one year, the unplated soft steel bleeder screws has rusted solid to the caliper!
Are other people seeing this too??

According to foreign media reports, sales of light vehicles in the United States last year (2018) were not only higher than those in 2017, but also exceeded analysts' expectations, with a total of 17.3 million vehicles sold. However, analysts and industry observers again said that due to a variety of economic factors, the U.S. light vehicle market will show a downward trend in 2019, but the decline is relatively small.
Many analysts expect U.S. light vehicle sales to range from 16.5 million to 17 million in 2019. J.D. Power expects between 16.9 million and 17 million vehicles, with retail sales of light vehicles between 13.6 million and 13.7 million.
As in 2018, the relative strength of the U.S. economy masked concerns about new car prices and rising interest rates. But in addition to these, there will be other problems in 2019, such as the impact of tariff and tax reform.
As a auto parts supplier, Chongqing Feilong Jiangli will keep up-to-date information on new information and new energy industries.
