GM Parts Direct???
Posted 27 February 2008 - 01:50 PM
I ordered 2 parts last week and am now nervous about their delay in arrival. The only communication I have been able to elicit from them is what appears to be an automated response. NO tracking info or status, other than " in process". Is this typical?
I did get a statement of policy and disclaimer from them in their auto response. That seems to be obfuscation and avoidance. As of now, I believe I made a poor choice. Any comments. Hopefully I did not violate a code of conduct with this post.

I have always received my parts but I have read here on this forum that they are not very helpful in finding lost parts. I wouldn't be afraid to use them again.

Jim Finn is the standard by which they should all operate. Had I known I would have ordered the parts "used" from Jim, if available. Who knows, since GM Parts Direct does not refund or cancel, I may end up with Jim.

The trick would be to get to know the guy at your local dealer's parts desk. Call and request parts often enough, like at the Ford dealer with our vans and the Explorers I had. The dude at the desk would give us, according to the invoice, "preferred wholesale" pricing.
Slightly off the topic, but same with like the auto parts store. Make a commercial account with them. At Advance, with this, I can call in parts that need to be ordered and don't have to go to the store and pay for them first and there's a decent savings...the other day we bought some oil and brakes for my dad's Civic, and it went from about $75 to $60 with the account pricing kicked in

The "GS" will rise again.
