This is one of those eBay stores to visit when you want the retail experience. If you’ve been to a tire shop lately, or even any auto parts store, you should be familiar with the brands and models that they carry.

Items like Front and Rear Brake Rotors & Ceramic Pads  for a Chrysler Town & Country or a Dodge Grand Caravan, Front and Rear Brake Rotors & Ceramic Pads for a Chevy Impala or Monte Carlo, Front and Rear OE Brake Disc Rotors & Ceramic Pads Kit for a Ford Flex or Taurus, etc.

When you sell name brand products, etc., especially at a discount, a popular question is always going to be if the items are authentic, fake, or knock-offs. To answer that question…

Let’s take a close look at their recent feedback history. Ebay buyers have a really good way of weeding out the good sellers from the bad. If an item even SLIGHTLY looks like it might be a counterfeit or knock-off, they will leave you bad feedback. And any and all flaws will usually be reflected in a seller’s feedback. With that being said, over the past 12 months, FastSource Autoparts has received about 25,200 positive feedback ratings, compared to just 94 negative feedback comments. With that sort of lop-sided ratio, it definitely appears as though FastSource Autoparts is an honestly run business, selling authentic merchandise.

Product Quality

Regardless of business reputation, if you sell brake rotors and brake components, quality is a whole different matter. Brakes are the biggest safety concern when it comes to our cars, and so it’s important to actually make sure that Fastsource Auto Parts is actually selling quality products. Let’s take a look…

Their listings show the following brake rotor comparison:

Their rotors to appear thicker, and much better constructed. The increased vane count is a key, as nothing warps rotors faster than excess heat (and a lot of hard stops of course).

Along with this infographic explaining how their brake pads are superior:

Impressive graphics, but let’s see what customers who have actually purchased these pads and rotors have to say:

Looking through the actual feedback comments, you mostly find feedback like those below:

They are mostly comments like “Great fit”, “excellent service”, “awesome seller”, etc.

Looking through the few negative feedback comments that they have received, you mostly find comments about a slow shipment here and there, or a wrong item received. There is nothing there to imply bad quality brake products.

So far so good!

Having worked at an auto parts store for 4 years, I can actually spot bad quality brake pads. In the store, we had a quick test to find out which pads were quality, and which were junk – we would rub the pads on a piece of paper. With the junk pads, the brake material would actually rub off on the paper – the quality pads would leave nothing.

The common component of poor quality brake pads are simply that they usually don’t have a smooth or even surface. This is what causes weak points in the material that allows it to rub off so smoothly. Looking at the pads from Fastsource Auto parts, they are in fact very smooth, and dense. The mark of good quality brake pads.

Warranty

Another important factor when buying brake pads and rotors is the actual warranty provided. The warranty provided by Fastsource Auto Parts is 90 days from the date of delivery.

Return Policy

60 day return policyFastsource offers a 60-day hassle free returns policy. No need to email back for a return authorization, or deal with with annoying emails back and forth. You just click on return, and send it back (if the items are unused). And having two months to do so is quite convenient.

You’re obviously covered by the eBay money back guarantee as well, if they are unresponsive, or don’t ship your item at all. Judging by their feedback history, it doesn’t appear as though that will be an issue.

Also, one important thing to note about their return policy – they don’t charge a restocking fee.
