I just tried looking up parts for my Fiero on NAPA's webpage, and Fiero isn't even listed under Pontiac.

It's still there for me. Nothing very specific though, bulbs, lubes, connectors, etc.

You have to make sure and include the year....that dictates what models are included under Pontiac

I just looked up 1987 Pontiac Fiero on napaonline.com for my local store (40422) and it shows 1359 parts. Now many of the Fiero specific parts might not be stocked locally, but they can get then in a day or two most of the time.

NAPA was the last part s house to try & stock american made parts ,,they built a new NAPA part store close to me ,,but american s hate american parts & they closed in about 2 years
I have given up !!american men prefer Chinese or foreign parts !!american parts cost more ,I still some times ask
you are now starting to reap what you have planted, your jobs have gone to another country keep up the good work,,you are fortunate that america has one last run

My local napa has "next day" availability to most FIERO tune up and brake items (except calipers) but the prices they are charging are way out of line with any other parts store in my area. Looks like they are pricing the slow moving parts at a premium figuring they can't be found elsewhere and we (I) will pay the price. So far they are very wrong and have lost my other vehicle parts business.

The website shows plenty for my 84', almost enough to rebuild the entire car. Every sensor and part I have purchased recently is Made in the U.S.A. and come with at minimum a 3/36K warranty. The quality of the part is obvious as soon as you open the box, I don't mind paying extra to get quality and support American jobs.

The fact is labor cost more here than abroad, we all know that. You gotta pay to play.
I stopped shopping elsewhere, not to mention the guys actually know mechanics vs the kids the other stores hire these days.

I was able to get all the calipers for my 85 SE. They were rebuilts from Salt Lake City, Utah. The quality was head and shoulders above the other national chains. AND the emergency brake actuators actually worked! I'd rather pay a few bucks extra for the quality and only do it once, than buy on the cheap and have to repeat the process sooner. Just my experience with NAPA.
