LEARN WHAT TYPE OF PARTS TO AVOID
After a collision, some auto insurance companies may recommend, or even specify to the collision repair center, the use of non-Hyundai Genuine Parts to repair a vehicle. That’s why it’s so important to check your insurance policy for parts descriptions that include:
LIKE KIND & QUALITY (LKQ) PARTS – These are “recycled” OEM parts from salvage (aka, junk) yards. Often, they’ve been previously repaired or reconditioned but there is no way to ensure the proper fit or function with your vehicle.
REMANUFACTURED PARTS – These are previously used, damaged or worn-out OEM parts that have been refurbished, repaired, or entirely rebuilt by an outside source.
AFTERMARKET PARTS – While new, these imitation OEM parts (aka, Quality Replacement Parts) are not Hyundai Genuine Parts and are not regulated, or crash tested, by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
NOTE: If you find any of these terms in your auto insurance policy, contact your insurance provider. They may be able to provide you with a “rider,” or a new policy, that specifies the use of Hyundai Genuine Parts.
