I got a second hand steering rack from there for around $600 with a warranty, and have not had any issues with it. Whereas Mazda wanted $3000 with no warranty and no return, and didn't care if it was the problem with car or not.

Agree with Flash, I've bought a couple of things from them & always found them OK
"The ingenious and decidedly weird Wankel rotary engine works by using internal combustion to bounce a fat metal triangle around inside a hollow metal kidney bean, which hula-hoops around a central shaft to generate power"

Jay is full of it, everyone knows these things aren't cheap to maintain, I have purchased a few things from Automotive Plus, fantastic friendly service with very reasonable prices.

While I do not necessarily disagree with the recent positive sentiments about Automotive Plus, lets at least give jay1607 the opportunity to reply to zoom's question and substantiate his opinion.

Because it was pure crap with no substance. As I keep telling people, stop pissing and moaning and put up hard facts. Otherwise STFU.

people are allowed to have an opinion on what they think - that is the key to a forum.

if we had to follow the views of 2 person it would be a very boring forum listening to 1 person

No one is stopping opinions. All I asked for was justification behind accusations (and they weren't minor ones).



If you want to say you had a bad experience...by all means say it. But do it civilly and with details of EXACTLY what happened, not just the parts that make your argument look good.

Every time i ask for this... all i can hear are crickets
