Genuine parts are tested by the manufacturer to ensure a reliable, comfortable and safe driving experience. Below are 4 points which the spares team at Key Pinetown have put together to inform your choice:
Some generic spare parts may have trouble sitting flush when installed, which can negatively take away from the overall look of your vehicle.
With genuine parts, you have the peace of mind that your spare was intended to both function and look good on your vehicle.
With generic parts there is a grey area in terms of how well they are ultimately tested to withstand your specific vehicles road conditions.
Genuine parts go through thousands of hours of robust, exhaustive test regimens to make sure they will keep up with your lifestyle, no matter where you’re headed.
Before public release, all vehicles are subjected to various safety tests which place the vehicle in compromising (often life threatening) situations.
When these tests are conducted, the vehicle is naturally fitted with only genuine parts. While using one or two generic parts may seem harmless, there is always a slight safety risk as they were never formally tested by manufacturers.
While generic parts may be much lower in cost, they can potentially lead to additional costs in the long term by breaking and causing wear to other adjacent parts.
Investing in genuine parts will save you money in the long run as they will require less frequent repairs and replacements, and will help you extend the lifetime of your vehicle.
