Fierostore has made good on any issues I have had. If you havent, I recommend letting them know when something isnt satisfactory.

On the flip side, we don't have many options for out of production stock parts, so I appreciate their effort and will continue to order from them. But as others have said, I wish they would tighen up their quality control.

West Coast Fiero is super expensive and doesn't have a great selection. Rodney has good prices, but not a lot selection either.


Well that's part of the problem, the Fiero cars are cheap, to buy, and not worth much when like new, so a vendor can't offer a part that has a high price tag. Well they can, but not many are going to buy it..
just look at some of the members that have offered an idea, and the bandwagon of people that post "I'm in" once the part is avail, cricket,cricket..

it's a balancing act.. build a quality part and it's cost be to high for the customer base.. or try to make a needed part as a price point that you can move enough to make it worth wild to even bother in the first place..
low volume and a model that's not worth a ton, makes it hard to even get a part made.. Parts for an old MG or aston martin can be quality because the customer base is willing to fork over the money, and the vehicle is worth much more.
The Fiero like it or not, is not worth much and most likely never will be.. it's a wonder anyone makes parts for it..

I'd venture to guess that depend if the part was faulty when new,, not months down the line..

I don't recall paying shipping. The Fiero store has made good on any problems I've had.

I would like them to chime in on this thread. These are serious concerns, and I'd like them to be addressed & corrected--particularly as I'd like to buy certain of these items.

As for the silence after products are produced, who knows? Sometimes, by the time a part is produced, the car is sold, interests have changed, budget has changed, etc. Sometimes the cost is different, or the quality leaves something to be desired. Sometimes, the part doesn't come out as desired. Take the TFS door panels, for example. I was interested in a set without speaker holes. Now that they're out, they're not what I expected. It may be easier to convert those with speaker holes to what I want. I'd love to buy doublec4's LED tail lights, but I don't want to get pulled over. With my luck, my car would be towed.
