Did you know that after an accident your vehicle may be repaired with aftermarket or used parts instead of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) Parts? This is due to the fact that primary auto insurers are only obligated to repair the vehicle with the cheapest parts available.
If you are concerned about your vehicle being fixed with aftermarket parts, make sure you consider an OEM Parts policy. When you use OEM Parts, you know your vehicle is being repaired with parts from the dealership. These parts were developed specifically for your car model and tend to fit better than aftermarket parts would. OEM Parts also provides the peace of mind that your vehicle is being repaired with parts directly from the manufacturer.
Purchasing OEM Parts coverage, also known as Genuine Body Parts, would ensure your vehicle is repaired with original parts instead of aftermarket or used parts. This form of insurance will pay the difference between the price of the aftermarket parts to the price of original parts. By utilizing this type of coverage, you can be assured that your vehicle is in the best possible condition after a partial loss accident.
