Aftermarket Auto Parts

Aftermarket Parts vs. Original Equipment Manufacturer Parts

You depend on your car to not only get you where you need to go, but to protect you and your family in the event of an auto accident. But what happens if you are in an accident in a car that has been repaired with something other than Original Equipment Manufacturer car parts such as aftermarket auto parts?

Aftermarket parts are popular with insurance companies because they are less expensive. In fact, some auto body shops receive incentives from insurance companies to use aftermarket auto parts. The problem is you can never really be sure how they will behave in an accident. Safety and performance of aftermarket parts are traded for cost. Fit, durability, and appearance can also make aftermarket parts an undesirable fit for your car.
