If it seems that we talk a lot about the importance of using original manufacturer’s parts on your vehicle repair, it’s for good reason. There is a right way to repair a vehicle, and then there’s the way that could result in far more than economic loss.
This 2014 list of the Top 10 Causes of Denver Car Accidents caught our attention. All of the usual suspects are present: distracted driving, driving under the influence, reckless driving and inclement weather. No surprises there. But take a look at number 10. There it is, in black and white: defective design/parts.
Since you are reading this article, chances are good that you have been in an accident at one time or another. Regardless of who or what was the cause of your accident, the last thing you want is to knowingly increase your chances of getting into (or causing) another one. The quality of parts your vehicle repair shop puts on your car absolutely matter!
Your vehicle was designed over the course of years, and before you ever took possession of it, was tested and re-tested for safety and structural integrity. Each part is a piece of a measured and tested puzzle designed by engineers to work together. If you alter the puzzle by substituting sub-standard, or third-party aftermarket parts, you are essentially disrupting the safety recipe originally designed, and potentially setting yourself up for disaster.
The risk of failure of non-tested, ill-fitting and poorly designed aftermarket parts is simply not worth gambling on, which is why here at Nylund’s we strongly support the manufacturer’s position on the use of original equipment in your repair. Your safety and that of your family is of the utmost importance to us. The safety of our community matters. Don’t be a party to another top 10 statistic. Insist upon original parts in the repair of your vehicle, and do not be persuaded by any influencing agency (ie. insurance company or repair shop) to knowingly allow sub-standard parts in your repair.
