Generic Parts Could Cost You More Over The Long Term

There has been a great deal of talk inside the automotive industry in recent years regarding the use of generic or second-hand parts for vehicle repairs. Many vehicle manufacturers recommend only using OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts. While the ideal choice is to use Subaru genuine parts, Australia drivers may be tempted to choose cheaper options and that could actually cost them more over the long term.

Australian Manufacturers Specifications

If you buy a cheaper part to repair your Subaru vehicle or take your car to the local garage you will encounter aftermarket parts. These parts are cheaper versions of the genuine Subaru parts that are available at your Subaru dealership. It’s important to note that all these parts are constructed to the minimum requirements needed to meet Australian manufacturers specifications. As such these parts are not particularly dangerous and may work fine most of the time. The real problem is with the consistency of the parts quality and how reliable they will actually be in day to day operation. Aftermarket parts are cheaper for a reason, the quality control is far more lax than that employed by Subaru and you may easily end up with a bad part.

Subaru Manufacturing Standards

When using Subaru genuine parts, Australia based drivers will encounter fewer problems involving parts failure. This is because Subaru genuine parts are designed and constructed to very high standards by the same company that actually built your vehicle. This ensures that the OEM parts that are used are of a consistent reliable quality, tested to high tolerances and thus they are far less likely to fail. Although genuine parts are more expensive than aftermarket ones, they will save the wise driver money in the long term through fewer failures and less time spent off the road being repaired.

Preferred Collision Repairs

It isn’t just the parts under the hood that are affected by aftermarket sales. One area that has been specifically addressed by Subaru is the smash repair sector of the automotive industry. Subaru has a network they refer to as PCR’s (Preferred Collision Repairers) which they supply with genuine Subaru OEM parts that are competitively priced. This also extends to full access to the Subaru database of body repair manuals, additional staff training and ongoing technical support. This level of integration ensures that a PCR will have all the tools they need, OEM parts required and access to all the experience of the Subaru factory to carry out collision repairs to a high standard. If you have a Subaru bodywork issue due to an accident the PCR network will be able to help fix the problem.
