Counterfeit Parts Target of Hyundai Campaign


Insist on Original Factory Replacement Parts

Hyundai continues its fight against the use of improper parts for collision repairs. In a new video on YouTube titled “Good to Know – Counterfeit Parts,” the company explains the many ramifications of using anything other than original equipment parts when repairing your car. Some counterfeit parts can be dangerous, as the Hyundai chassis is specially engineered to direct the energy of a crash away from the vehicle’s occupants. If a structurally incorrect part is used, there is a possibility that the safety of the vehicle is diminished to the point that injury or death may occur. To make sure you get the correct Hyundai parts to repair your damaged car, visit the collision center at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Bad Parts Also Diminish Value

It doesn’t take a trained eye to see when an improper part is used to repair a collision, especially if the part is a key ingredient to the exterior. Poor fitting doors, fenders, hoods and bumpers are not only a danger to the occupants of the car, but can also look bad, diminishing the value of your vehicle when it comes time to sell or trade it in. Using Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Hyundai parts ensures your car maintains its maximum value when it comes time to get something new. Make sure you take your car to a Hyundai-approved collision center when it becomes time for repair. Don’t let your insurance company force you to go someplace where quality is an afterthought just to save a few dollars.

Original Airbags Vital to Passenger Safety

The use of OEM parts is especially critical if your airbags have deployed. New airbags are not inexpensive, so its common practice to replace deployed bags with cheaper counterfeit models. Hyundai’s YouTube video gives an example of a factory airbag versus a counterfeit option. You’ll see first hand the difference in the deployment and how a cheaper airbag can cost someone their life. To be clear, Hyundai does not recommend using removed or recycled parts from other vehicles and especially warns consumers against the use of shoddy counterfeit parts.
