invest in quality

Buying a car is not a one-off investment. Down the road, car owners are often required to replace crucial components due to wear and tear to ensure the roadworthiness of their vehicles.

Many factors such as price, quality and service come into play when shopping for aftermarket car parts. However, a general rule of thumb is to place quality as the foremost consideration.

In addition to helping car owners save on unnecessary costs in the long run, choosing quality parts also provides you with a safer and smoother driving experience. Here are several indicators of quality that car owners should note.

Know Your Opinions

There is a wide variety of options for replacement parts in the aftermarket which fall into two categories: Original Equipment (OE) parts and aftermarket parts.

OE parts are the exact same parts that came with the vehicle originally. A variation of this would be OE quality parts which refers to parts that are produced to the specifications of the original part. While the definitions may differ slightly, OE and OE quality parts are acknowledged for their superior reliability and quality and come at a premium.

The aftermarket refers to the secondary market for servicing or replacement of parts which car owners turn to – usually after the warranty on their vehicles have lapsed. Aftermarket parts can be manufactured by independent brands with no affiliations to car makers, or established brands who offer OE parts and OE quality parts. As such, the prices and quality of the products can vary widely depending on the brand.

Hence, it is advisable to enter into a conversation with your workshop with a budget in mind so that you can strike a balance between cost and quality.

Quality Assurance

They say seeing is believing, but it never hurts to have that added assurance that you are purchasing a quality aftermarket product.

Established brands who are in the business for the long-run will usually invest time and effort into attaining certifications by independent and authorized bodies to certify that they operate according to global standards. For example, ISO certifications are widely recognised hallmarks of quality that demonstrates the brand’s commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.

As such, it may be worthwhile to check if the brand of the parts you are looking to purchase possess such certifications before committing to the purchase.
