Need Parts

What happened to the Napa in Manteo? I always used to buy my parts from there, but lately they've gotten my order wrong, or they'll tell me tomorrow on a part and it will take a week, and they constantly sell me the wrong part. I've started going to carquest. It's a longer drive, but at least I don't have to go back And what happened to the guys that used to work there? Used to most of the people in there knew what they were talking about, but now the only one that has half a clue is the red headed manager, and if he's not there it's hopeless. Where did the other guys go?

I get my parts from advance. Napa sucks now that Dons gone. What's up with all the cocky young guys who couldn't make it as mechanics. Grow up, it's napa. A job not a career. The females at advance are more qualified. Ask around, the prices are high and parts usually right the second time.

I think the place needs to be shut down. This town loved Fred and he loved this town. Brant jacks all the prices so he can go on all his vacations. Whenever I need to get ahold of him he is out of town. As for the hoodlums, they need to dress like its a business and not high school. I also deal with car quest. Better quality and cheaper prices.

Don, that was the short guy right, always pissed off, but he was good with parts. I do have to agree with the parts are usually right the second time. Out with the old in with the new huh? I'd rather have someone with some real experience helping me with my car.

Yea don was usually pissed, but look who he had to work with. They had another younger guy for a while but I don't see him anymore. Either they canned him or he saw light at the end of the tunnel. Hey, atleast the wannabe cop/fire fighters gone. I thought he was going to handcuff me when I went in there

Need parts, you think the cocky red head that worked at colony tire is good? Wow, you don't go to many parts stores. He was turning wrenches cause no one wanted to talk to him. I know someone that works there and says he's on a power trip all the time. Maybe he should shack up with Fred at allcar. Would make a nice couple!

walk into advance and tell them you want a hydraulic hose made or a part for an outboard and see what they have to say they are all a bunch of booksmart dumb asses.

Atleast they have booksmarts. I get hoses from just right. You guys have some good stuff. By far the cheapest can sodas in town, and for that I thank you.

The Murrays in KDH has always been my parts place. Good guys there ready to help, Charlie especially. I actually live closer to the KH store but I prefer the KDH store.

Yea i remember the firefighter/cop guy, he is actually a firefighter i think, don't think he's a cop though, he was better than what they got now though. but the red head might have failed as a mechanic, but he's not a bad parts guy, not as good as don and the other guy greg, greg was great. Yea i stopped into kdh that's where the other younger guy went, and that's where greg is, it's not too far of a drive, might start going there.

oh aren't the ghetti brothers at carquest now?

Yes the brothers are. My opinion is car quest has the guys and store hours to compete with anyone. Manteo just needs to be ran like it was back in the day when I had my shop up and running. I guess with the economy the way it is every business is struggling

At least Advanced Auto and Car Quest are open after 5 pm. Some of us need to get our parts AFTER work. My [home] garage doesn't shut down at 5 pm. If NAPA wants my business, they're going to have to stay open a little longer...!
