  Older cars need more parts.

Throughout mid-2008 U.S. auto sales reached 16 year lows as consumers spent less in the face of recessionary pressures and credit was withheld for all except the most qualified borrowers. As people wait longer to replace their automobiles, the country's fleet of cars becomes older, requiring more maintenance and replacement parts. AutoZone is well positioned to take advantage of this increased demand for parts, especially as drivers are less likely to take older cars to dealerships for maintenance, but rather do it themselves, or bring the car and necessary parts to an independent garage.[1]

On the other hand, this will benefit AZO because AZO's app is spearheading the way to mobile shop via iPhone in such situations.
