WHAT THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY SAYS ABOUT AFTERMARKET PARTS?
Car owners in need of collision repairs do not have to settle for low
quality replacement parts. There are high quality, tested and certified
"aftermarket" parts available (i.e. Car Body Parts Online). Certified
Automotive Parts Association (CAPA) is a non-profit organization
established in 1987 to develop and oversee a testing and inspection
program for certifying the quality of parts used for collision repairs.
CAPA was founded to promote price and quality competition in the collision
parts industry, thereby reducing the cost of crash repairs to consumers
without sacrificing quality. Manufacturers and distributors of competitive
replacement parts are so confident in the quality of their parts many are
now offering limited lifetime warranties. Most reputable distributors,
body shops and insurance companies recognize that the competitive nature
of the industry mandates a concerted effort focused on quickly and cost
effectively refurbishing the consumer's car to pre-accident condition.
Therefore, these "players" have absolutely nothing to gain from using
Healthy competition in any business ultimately benefits the consumer;
in this instance the car owner. The average Ford or General Motors car
selling for $14,000 would cost over $40,000 if purchased piece-by-piece
using Original Equipment (OE) parts. In 1992, an OE fender for a Toyota
Camry cost $253. By 1996 that same fender had dropped to $143.88 primarily
because the aftermarket fender was selling for around $60.00. (There is a
reason that Henry Ford once said something to the effect that he would
give new cars away if he could be assured of having all of the replacement
parts business.) Overall, auto owners have seen collision parts prices
reduced by as much as 40% since competitively priced aftermarket parts
have become readily available.
Based on guidelines set by the National Highway Transportation Safety
Administration, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has conducted
numerous crash tests comparing aftermarket and OE parts. These tests have
shown conclusively that there are no discernable differences in safety
performance. In fact, during one such test in 1997, while representatives
from body shops, insurance companies, and members of the media looked on,
experts determined that aftermarket parts performed as well or better
than OE parts.
The use of aftermarket collision parts does not affect the trade-in or
market value of a vehicle any more than replacing an original battery
with a Die-Hard from Sears. The goal in all post-collision repairs is
to return the automobile to pre-accident condition and this can be
achieved with OEM, aftermarket, salvage and reconditioned parts.
