Is It a Good Idea to Buy Your Auto Parts From the Dealership?
Here at Milford Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, we go through this question of where to buy the parts for repairs and maintenance for our customer’s automobiles. If you really stop an analyze things, it stands to reason that you really cannot do better than the same part that was originally in the car when you purchased it.
Anything else in the way of a part is going to be inferior because if it costs less, then perhaps something is missing. Many aftermarket parts are just not made of the same quality as original parts because they are not manufactured the same. Plastic may be substituted for metal, quality control may be different and so forth.
And just think about your warranty. Is your warranty really going to be good with parts that are not 100% dealer parts? The part is not always the problem either. Sometimes a wire is loose or another minor adjustment is necessary. That is why we are here, to help you solve problems, not just sell parts.
