Thread: Rockauto sells Power Stop truck brakes for a Mirage

    Rockauto sells Power Stop truck brakes for a Mirage

    I ordered a power stop daily driver rotor and pad kit for a 2017 Mirage. When the box arrived I knew something was wrong as soon as I picked it up. It weighed far to much to be 2 rotors and pads for our little cars. The rotors looked about right but I really have no way to tell because I have a 2015 and my rotors are smaller. I bought some 2017 caliper brackets from a junkyard and was trying to upgrade to a 2017 front brake package. The pads are HUGE! I have a 2015 Ram 1500 and the pads on my truck are not this big. You can see from the picture just how big they are.

    First I checked the web site to make sure I ordered the right part. I did in fact order a pad and rotor kit for a 2017 Mirage. The Pads have the right part number on the pads the box and the order sheet but they are just wrong. Here is the thing that really pissed me off. I contacted Rockauto and they admit that it looks like I ordered the right part but I still have to pay half to ship it back. And they don't have the right pads. I kept the rotors just because I didn't want to pay to ship them back too. I do believe they are the right rotors.

    Just a warning to anyone that wants to order Power Stop rotor and pad kits.

    Unless your Mirage came with 6 piston calipers I'd say something isn't right there for sure!

    That sucks. Thanks for the heads-up. I wish Rock Auto would introduce some way to comment on parts purchased. Most of my experiences with them have been positive. But a few parts I wouldn't want anyone to touch.

    I recently put on Raybestos Element3 EHT hybrid pads and I really like them. They have more stopping power than my old ceramic pads, and they are quiet. I'm not sure about brake dust yet as it's only been a few weeks. The price was dirt cheap for them too which made me skeptical. So far I am very happy though and I would definitely buy them again.

    I'm gonna guess that it's not rockauto's fault but powerstop's. The part number on the pads looks to be the right number for the Mirage. The different pads I've used over the years always had the part number 1731 in it somewhere. I don't think it's right that you'd have to pay a dime for return shipping on parts that are boxed wrong. I'd call and ask them to open a raybestos brand for the same car and compare it with the powerstop brand they have on hand and see wth is up. But maybe the have a call center in india?

    Here's a long winded story. Just yesterday I ran into a problem with an SKF bearing. I needed a rear wheel bearing for a g500. The Skf part listed on rock auto was a gwr239. The bearing was way too small. The dimensions on rock auto were correct for that bearing but the application was wrong. I eventually found a cross reference from a National bearing number to skf and came up with a gwr329. It was a perfect fit. I'm guessing someone at skf was a little dyslexic that day? The number they list for the g500 also showed as fitting a focus as well as sprinter van, which the later is probably correct.

    Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot

    I emailed Power Stop and they made it right!

    They are sending me out the correct brake pads. Part number Z23-1731. Hopefully they get it updated on all the web sites. Its wrong on Rock Auto and Power Stops web sites. When ever I get them and install everything I will let you all know how they work.

    Woohoo. Isn't it nice when a company fesses up and does the right thing? Very cool.

    Thanks for the replies, everyone. With the collective commentary in mind, I'm going to go ahead and place my order. I'll report back here with results. I too looked into RockAuto a long time ago but didn't see much of what I needed. It seems they've grown a lot since then and carry a lot of good brand names, some of the parts being MUCH cheaper than the local chain stores. Case in point, I'm putting rear hub and bearing assemblies (all made into one piece with an integral ABS sensor) on my GF's Grand Am. I'm partial to Timken, and AutoZone sells them for $144 each. Rock Auto shows the same part number for about $89 each. Even with shipping charges I come out way better.

    As far as GM Parts Direct, I've ordered from them before and was pleased. It does take a while to get the parts, but then again, my parts happened to be special order items, so that partially explains that. Shipping can be high sometimes, but it depends on what you're ordering... it seems the larger the part the better the cost of shipping, and vice versa. Customer service seems good though, and I can't say I have any complaints.

    I wish I had looked at RockAuto more prior to doing CV axles, motor mounts, and other front end work on this same car back in December... all in all, I could have gotten the same parts but saved about $75 total on the job. At least I'm a member of AutoZone's Rewards program, so I get $20 parts every once in a while... comes in handy for oil changes and other small repairs.

    Let me tell you all about Rock Auto. They suck big league (as Trump would say). Their catalog has errors and if their supplier says it will fit, they will not pay for shipping back. I have received obviously wrong parts and had to pay shipping back, and then wait for a refund. They do not believe you, they only believe their suppliers and will not change their catalog if an error is found. I do look at their catalog to see pics of parts and to compare them, but never to buy them.
    If I need it quickly, I go to the local Carquest. If it is not on their shelf and I am there before 9 AM, they have it after lunch. If later in the day, they have it the next morning at 8. Seldom a wrong part and if it happens, they take it back and get the right part.
    If it is something that I don't need right now and I am sure of the part number, I use Amazon. Low prices (sometimes a little lower or a little higher than Rock, with Amazon free shipping), wrong or broken parts are replaced before sending back the old one, and refunds are with no questions asked (at their expense if a wrong or broken part is sent).
    If you go with Rock, watch the shipping charges. 4 small parts might come from 4 locations and shipping can be more than the parts cost. Not so with Amazon.
    I like Carquest for parts with a core charge, too. Just drop it off on my next trip to town.
    Another thing about Carquest. They have my son and me listed in their computer. If I need something that I bought two years ago, they can look it up. I had a muffler develop a rattle after a year, so they looked it up and gave me another for free. No need to try to find a receipt. That is great for warranty issues. Try to get that from Rock, you will need a copy of your 4th grade report card and a pint of blood to get something replaced later.
