I’ll admit I’m no expert when it comes to cars. Sure, I can do the basics like refill the air in my tires and top up the windshield fluid, but that’s about it. I’ve recently started taking things into my own hands though (with the help of more knowledgeable friends and family), and when one of my headlamps went out I turned to none other than Amazon to find a replacement.

I was able to quickly and easily find exactly what I was looking for, and at a much cheaper price than if I had gone to a mechanic. I just entered the make and model of my car into the Automotive home page to receive personalized product recommendations that are guaranteed to fit my car.

Broken Cars in Auto Service. Vehicle Engine Problem. Open Hood.

I was surprised at the amount of items available, with everything from cleaning cloths and USB adaptors to bigger ticket items like bike racks and hubcaps for sale. I’ve yet to venture out into the specialized auto items, but it’s nice to know there’s an alternative to a mechanic or good old Canadian Tire out there.

If you haven’t yet checked out Amazon’s selection of car tools and accessories, Prime Day is coming up and you’re sure to find some great deals leading up to the big event on July 15 and 16. We’ve also collected some of the top-selling items for your car on Amazon, to keep things running smoothly this season.

Customer review: “Love these cloths. I like that it comes with multiple colours so we don't mix up what we use them for. I've used them from wiping counters, cleaning cars, cleaning windows, wiping off my kids after they eat and many other things. I'll definitely buy another pack once these wear out.”
