Whether you need to replace brake pads, brake discs, a filter or a whole host of other parts on your car; either as a result of a break down or as routine maintenance, the question always arises as which parts to buy. Do you opt for cheap replacement parts from eBay or do you spend (often only a little bit) more and purchase genuine parts? Whilst many opt for the cheaper parts, there’s a whole host of reasons why you should never buy anything other than genuine car parts and we’ve teamed up with Cox Motor Parts, suppliers of genuine replacement Honda parts, to look at these.
Above all, you need to understand that the only parts recommended by manufacturers are genuine parts. Absolutely nothing else is manufactured to their exact specification and tested in the way that genuine parts are. As such, when you buy anything other than the manufacturers parts, you’re ultimately in one way or another compromising the performance of your vehicle and, in some instances, the safety of you and your passengers. Whilst, of course, all parts just be manufactured to certain regulations and standards, it still begs the question as to why would you replace parts with anything other than what was intended to be there? It’s simple, you shouldn’t!
If you want to ensure your car runs smoothly, performs at its very best and is, above all, reliable, there’s absolutely no question as to whether you should go for genuine car parts or other inferior replacements. Buying ‘the real thing’ doesn’t have to cost a fortune and you’ll find a whole host of online retailers offering genuine parts for all makes and models of car at competitive prices.
It’s not worth the risk of buying anything but genuine parts as far as we are concerned and in doing so, you’ll be able to guarantee that you’re not only choosing the safe option but also doing what’s right for your car and keeping it performing as you would expect it to! From brake discs and pads through to clutches, filters and so much more, when it comes to replacing during routing maintenance or following a break down, be sure to go with only the very best parts. Whilst many parts claim to be manufactured to the same specifications as genuine ones, that’s not always the case and, especially with some parts, you’ll very quickly start to tell the difference in performance.
Genuine parts are made to last and are what your car was designed to be fitted with. As such, why try and change what’s already working? Play it safe and stick with genuine parts next time it comes to buying replacements!
