The quality of the car parts sold on eBay varies based on the seller and the source from which the parts come. To ensure quality, buyers should pay attention to the feedback rating of the seller and, if the parts are coming from a dealer, the legitimacy of the outlet.
The best way for a buyer to make sure he is getting a high-quality car part from eBay is to purchase from a mass retailer or parts outlet store. Many outlets list entire parts inventories on eBay to attract online buyers. Quality outlet stores have a high feedback rating and often times offer a warranty on their parts.
