call before you order
"Automotix's customer service is very poor. I needed a new radio/cd player for my Impala because the old one kicked the bucket. When I went online to order, the part description was vague. They did offer a description for the stock part (meaning no upgrade, just buying a working version of my current part), but there were other parts in the description. This was confusing and led me to believe "they probably list different parts so you know that THIS part will fit your car if it has these parts." The image, however, was for a really nice radio with an Auxiliary input which mine currently doesn't have. I went ahead and bought that because that would be great to have. Today I received the same stock part that is in my car now. When I called to ask what happened, the customer service rep was very defensive and said that that they use stock photos, as if I shouldn't expect to receive what is pictured. The rep was rude and failed to hear where I (the customer) was coming from. I was simply told that it was my responsibility to call Automotix before the order was placed to make sure it was clear. How many online stores require you to call first? That defeats the purpose and shows an unprofessional model. I don't even write reviews-- I was just so frustrated after this experience. I'd say don't use Automotix unless you know exactly what you're getting beyond a shadow of a doubt. And if you need to call customer service, take a deep breath beforehand. "
"I ordered a transmission for my daughter's car that supposedly only had 72000 on it. It comes in and my mechanic installs it and calls me and says it slams when it goes into gear and shifts hard. I pick it up and it slams when going from park to drive but only shifts hard at high RPMs so my daughter uses it for work and it slowly gets worse and worse till it won't even let the car start. We have it towed to a shop and they put it on for diagnostic and say the transmission is junk. We call automotix and it takes over 3 days to hear back and get a form emailed to us and fill it out and send back once at the shop. Sent it in and heard nothing for almost 2 weeks. I emailed them last night about it and today I get an email back saying they will not cover it cause it had 1400 miles on it. Well the warranty is for 12000 miles. I played 850.00 for a junk trans and 300 for install 50 for diagnostic and 200 for the tow. To be told they are voiding my warranty. I will be contacting a lawyer the first of the week. This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever had to deal with. I would not suggest anyone ever buy anything from this bunch of thieves. If you see a good rating anywhere about them it is cause they rated themselves. I think they are nothing but a huge scam and should be shut down. I will be contacting the BBB as well as a lawyer next week. "
Sells a defective part then makes it impossible to get through to them! Horrible!
"Very poor customer service! The part I ordered Invoice No. 85349952 was obviously not checked before shipping and the cassette did not work. When I tried to call to inquire about returning it for an exchange, I waited half an hour while on hold for RETURNS. I called back and this time chose PURCHASES on the phone tree. After 15 minutes waiting, the lady operator told me she would tranfer me to RETURNS!I waited 15 minutes again and hung up. I will never deal with Automotix again and will discourage friends as well. VERY DISSAPOINTED!Arthur DuffyOakland, Ca"
Do not buy from them
" Do not buy from them !!! Poor customer service. Should not have to double pay for wrong item. I ordered the radio for Dodge G/Caravan/ But i got the old amplifier. And now i cant return that back and to get back my money. Scam! Junk!"
Great Company with lots of options
"I purchased an AM/FM radio/CD player for my 02 BMW 325Ci . They had a number of options and made sure that I was ordering the right model for my car. The price was good and the radio arrived quickly, had the proper connections, wiring and worked perfectly."
"Order was placed on 12/12/16 and received on 12/15/16. The part was a replacement side-view mirror and was an exact match, even the color. Very impressed!"
"The whole ordering process was easy, and communication was excellent. The factory radio we received was in excellent condition and we received it fast as well. Would definitely use again if needed!"
Sent wrong part!!!!!
"Ordered drivers mirror power. Sent manual. Want me to buy another and wait for refund. Ridiculous. No way to drive to work cause of them. In the interest of good customer service this item should be overnighted and they wait for return. But customer service evidently is not part of this companys profile. Do not buy from them !!! Poor customer service. Should not have to double pay for wrong item. "
"Hello. I have already called and gotten a refund processed for the ****, garbage A/C compressor you guys sent me. Not only did the part not work, it wouldn't even turn on.First of all, the part was shipped in a box about 5 times too large for the size, with no packing material whatsoever. Even if the part worked before you sent it to me, it's unlikely that it would work after being shipped like that. It was leaking coolant all over the place, and the box was falling apart and soggy from coolant, which is dangerous for anyone to touch or breathe, by the way. I'm surprised it even made it to my house without just falling out of the fucking box somewhere along the way. I wanted to just return the thing right then, but figured I might as well see if it worked after spending time and effort and money ordering it.Have some fucking pride in your product. I know it's a used part, but at least test it to see if it still works before just throwing it in an empty box with no cushioning and wasting your own time and your customer's time by sending it to them.Not only did you waste my time sending me a useless piece of trash, I had to wait for hours and pay $90 in labor to have it installed. So when I get another part that actually fucking works (FROM ANOTHER SERVICE BECAUSE I WILL NEVER USE THIS SERVICE AGAIN) I'm going to have to pay another fucking $90. Your representative said that they don't reimburse for labor, which is bullshit. It is a cost incurred because of your terrible, useless product."
hard to deal with but
"I ordered a part that was promised to me within 2 days after ordering it didn't show for 5 days. When it showed the box looked as if it went through a War.They were hard to deal with as far as customer service goes. But in the end they apologized and made things right. I'm not sure if I will ever do business again with them.1 star up to 3 stars."
What a Nightmare
"All I can say is you best be sure the part you are ordering is EXACTLY what you need because returning a part is a NIGHTMARE. First let me say there add saying shipping is free is ONLY if you are shipping to a business. Now as far as the return goes they were only going to return me 1/3 the cost of the part if they had to come pick it up. So I drove it to their closest drop off location which was 50 miles away. Even with dropping it off I was CHARGED over 1/3 the cost of the part to return it. The drop off location has no real affiliation with this company so their "systems" are not synced so they could not even offer me a receipt showing I returned it. Besides the lady who took my order over the phone, who was very nice, the other people I spoke to were not very friendly at all and the whole operation just seemed unprofessional and hokey. I would highly recommend dealing direct with your local used parts store and or salvage yard and only use this company if you are desperate and have no other choice."
"Poor website, a waste of time and money. The manual I downloaded and paid for was useless. I found better info on Youtube."
Don't do it!1
"Bought a windshield visor, took 10 days to ship, when it got here it was suppose to be tan but was grey. Called them and they don't guarantee color. So basically if you order black, you could get any color and they tell you to pack sand. Also, it looked like it was removed with greasy hands because it had grease all over it and was filthy. Horrible, dishonest company, do not buy from them! You will be throwing money in the garbage."
"I am very pleased with Automotix.com. I ordered a replacement door for my car from them. I ordered it online, I did Not call customer service. The email communication was very good, and the door was shipped in a very timely manner. I only gave Automotix.com 4 stars overall, because the door was scratched during shipping (I don't care because my car isn't that great). Also, one of the electrical plugs was damaged. The wires were torn out of it. It looked like it was damaged when the door was removed from the car. I am very handy and was able to fix it, but a normal person may have had problems. I am very happy because I would have had a very hard time finding this part by myself, especially the color. Thank you Automotix! One more note, Automotix is LKQ, which apparently is a very popular salvage yard among mechanics."
"No stars. They are terrible....I was looking for a used cross member(torsion bar setup, holds the keys in place) for a 1995 Tahoe, that shares the same part as a number of Yukon, and Tahoe models. I was directed to a phone rep who knew VERY little about autos, who then tried to tell me I was ordering the last one in the continental US, and he asked for more than GM would have charged for the piece of steel new. I bailed on that transaction before we got any further. I had already ordered a lower A Arm for the same truck, 4 days earlier, paid in full. When I received the ORDER PROCESSED email 6 days after the order was placed, there was no tracking number. I waited another 2 days and emailed them for an update. No response. I called them the following day and was told it was on it's way to a carrier and the tracking would update online the next day...2 days after that, no online tracking info. I called again, and was told "there is an email from the yard to my manager noting the part was unsellable, but they are getting you another, I'll call you back with an update today." They call back 2 hours later (on the alternate phone # for shipping) and tell us they are refunding the money, expect to see it about 5 business days. From my standpoint, I had to call them 3 times, they told me fairy tales each time, and then can't source a simple part for an American vehicle. They don't pull parts until they have the money, and then they can't refund a charge in a timely fashion. NEVER AGAIN. Steer clear of these folks they are taking money for parts they can't deliver. Customer service is horrible. If I hadn't called, when would they have let me know??? If the money isn't refunded quickly, I will file with the BBB.....update....refund complete....they still blow"
