Finding Parts for My 2000 Ford Ranger

Finding Parts for My 2000 Ford Ranger

When I lived in Sacramento, my family occasionally needed to transport large items: furniture, construction materials, and the like. I always fancied the idea of getting a small truck, but I was never sure if I would use the truck enough to justify paying $5,000-$10,000. One day, I was browsing Craigslist and found a red 2000 Ford Ranger with only 73,000 miles for $1,500. Only one problem… The truck has been in a front collision and needed repair. After negotiating…

The Best Worst Car Puns in the Universe

The Best Worst Car Puns in the Universe

The PartsMarket team wanted to reveal our love for puns in a way that would be entertaining. In order to do so, we knew we needed to start with a charming opening line. Hmmm…. I think we’re off to a great start, but ‘part’ of us didn’t want to ‘wreck’ this blog post. Should we press on the gas or take a ‘brake?’ Even if you don’t think puns are funny, at least you’ll be able to look back at this…

A New Way to View Maps

A New Way to View Maps

As car drivers, we all rely heavily on GPS to get us to our destination. It has become so easy over time. We simply touch our phones, open an app, and type in where we want to go. It’s effortless. But have we come to accept the way these map apps display our journey? Couldn’t the visual experience be more stimulating? Isn’t there a better way for me to understand my surroundings? I like to think of those times when I’m visiting…

Cars That Last 200,000 Miles

Cars That Last 200,000 Miles

In fact, history has proven that some of the most financially fit individuals in the world reap immense benefits from driving the same car until it can’t go a single mile farther. To celebrate a sort of throwback to our roots, we unearthed an old article published on Cheap…

Thoughts from a Future Model 3 Owner (Part 1)

Thoughts from a Future Model 3 Owner (Part 1)

As a car enthusiast, I was one of the many that were sold on Tesla’s more affordable vehicle, the Model 3. I was 1 of the 100,000+ that pre-ordered it during the live unveiling event all the way back at the end of last year. Now that it’s almost been a full year of waiting, I want to document my thoughts. I won’t say I’m angry or frustrated, but it is flummoxing to accept that Tesla has sent me a…
