What do you really know about aftermarket collision parts?

It’s important to keep some perspective when it comes to purchasing aftermarket collision parts. More unknown aftermarket parts manufacturers are entering the low cost market all the time, while technical complexity and safety integration from new car manufacturers continue to increase. So how do you really know if the collision parts you buy will actually fit and perform safely and reliably?

Risky Business

According to a recent survey, almost half the time (46%) body shop businesses use non-O.E. parts, the results are an unacceptable fit. That’s an almost 50-50 roll of the dice. On the other hand, O.E. collision replacement parts provide an acceptable fit. In the same study, almost 30% of all aftermarket crash parts had to be returned to the vendor for some reason.
  • 83% of body shop business managers feel that OEM parts have a positive impact on their business.
  • 58% indicate aftermarket parts negatively impact their business.
It’s clear. Aftermarket crash parts can adversely affect your day-to-day business. So don’t leave your reputation and company bottom line to chance. Arm yourself with the facts and insist on Mopar® genuine collision parts.
