Don't buy parts like that at a parts store, like autozome or whatever. Go to the dealer and get oem parts, alot better, and better trusted with oem parts.

Yeah and pay $200 for a thermostat that you can buy for $50 at Autozone (this is just an example). It does not mean if it is not from the dealer, it is no good. Dealers outsource the parts they sell and delete their labels and either stamp their own or box it themselves which adds 50% of the cost to it.
