Did you know that you have your very own garage on Amazon? But you have to park your car in your Amazon Garage before you can use it. Here’s how it works.
Your Amazon Garage
First, you need to go to your Amazon Garage page, and you need to add the details about your car to your Amazon Garage. This includes the year, make, and model.

In this example, we have put a 2001 Chrysler Town & Country in our garage.
Now, you will note that Amazon immediately offers you product categories with items that are specifically for your year, make, and model of vehicle..
And of course you can also search for what you need, and it will show you results for the vehicle in your Amazon Garage.
The other way to get to your Amazon Garage, if you don’t already have a car in there, is directly from search results. If you search for car parts, Amazon will prompt you to enter the year, make, and model.
As soon as you enter the year, make and model…
…that car gets added to your garage.
What is interesting to us is that the Amazon Garage seems to be a little known, if not nearly completely unknown, customer feature on Amazon, and yet Amazon sellers who sell automotive parts are begging Amazon to get customers to use their Amazon Garage, so that they order the right parts, instead of the wrong ones, resulting in returns.
Says one frustrated seller, in the Amazon Seller Central Forums, “We are seeing an excessive number of returns on Automotive parts because the customer is not adding their vehicle to the Amazon Garage to check fitment. It is not only frustrating for us that we get returns claiming that the “wrong item was sent” or “website description not accurate”, even though we sent the part number that was ordered. It is frustrating for the customer who thinks that the item they are purchasing will fit and now have to return the item because it does not fit.”
There are two ways that you can get directly to your Amazon Garage. You can get there from the dropdown on your Amazon account menu:
Or you can use this link to your Amazon Garage page.
