The use of genuine new parts for your vehicle and for any associated repairs is crucial for many reasons. Mercedes Benz demonstrated the serious safety risks associated with the use of non-genuine parts.

It would be fair to say that the car industry is concerned about the safety implications for all motorists when using non genuine parts.
Genuine parts have been used to build your car or motorcycle. Genuine parts are made or selected by the vehicle’s maker and rigorously tested by that maker as an integral component of the vehicle to meet high quality, safety and performance standards. This ensures that your vehicle will drive, function and protect you the way it was intended.
If your vehicle needs replacement parts following a collision or during servicing and maintenance, it’s essential that genuine parts are fitted. Genuine parts are new and the only parts approved and warranted by the vehicle’s maker and you can only guarantee you will get genuine parts by sourcing them through the vehicle maker’s authorised supply chain — use anything else and you may be taking a risk.
Non-genuine parts might look like the real thing but they have not been made, selected or approved by the maker of your car or motorcycle and have never been tested as an integral component of your vehicle by the manufacturer. Non-genuine parts can’t necessarily promise the same quality and safety attributes that come with a genuine part.
Further, we encourage you to investigate the finer details of your car insurance policy. Some insurance companies do not specify the use of genuine new replacement parts when repairing your vehicle. This cost cutting measure could be deadly in the unlikely event of an accident. At Col Crawford’s we use and recommend Allianz for car insurance as they DO specify the use of genuine new replacement parts for all vehicle repairs. Something to seriously think about.
