Mopar Parts from Authorized Dealers

Prices checked March 2015. Generally, though most companies now provide free returns and sometimes even free shipping on a return, car dealers make you pay for shipping (both ways) and then a 10%-20% “restock fee.” They tend to use the same clumsy back-end systems for ordering. Inventories seem highly variable. We have chosen three parts for comparison which are available at most dealerships. We did not include shipping costs, which can override minor savings. As you can see, there is not complete consistency.
