Need car spare parts? Here’s why you should always choose genuine ones

Even if you care for your automobile carefully and love it, you will eventually need to repair some parts. This may occur as a result of normal wear and tear or other extraordinary situations. When this occurs, you might be tempted to utilise non-certified spare parts for your car since they are more affordable.
This choice could have long-term repercussions. While you will save a few hundred rupees, using uncertified parts might harm your car irreparably and possibly jeopardise its safety. Here are five excellent reasons to always get genuine auto parts:

1. The cost factor
Uncertified car spare parts cost less and will save you money in the short term, but they do not offer the same level of quality as certified parts. Uncertified parts tend to wear down more quickly, so they will likely need to be replaced more frequently – resulting in higher costs in the long run. The use of non-certified spare parts can also impact your car’s warranty, which can increase costs in ways you never expected.

2. Reliability
While less expensive, non-certified auto parts may first appear to function well and can provide smooth drives. However, their dubious quality may impact other components in your automobile. Keep in mind that your car is a complicated machine with over 2000 moving parts (for internal combustion engine vehicles) that must all function together. So, one subpar part can impact the effectiveness and performance of many other parts. Make sure you treat your car with the respect it deserves and that you only use branded, high-quality, certified spare parts.

3. Fuel efficiency
Every car has normal wear and tear from use, so as particular components age, fuel consumption will rise. Even after many years of ownership, frequent maintenance (not just when there are issues) and using high-quality replacement car spare parts will help you save money on fuel.

4. Safety
Nobody wants their car to break down and leave them stranded on the road. You run the danger of not knowing when the car will break down and stop mid-trip if you try to save money by using inexpensive automobile spare parts. With certified auto parts, this problem is less likely to arise.

5. Resale value
If your current vehicle is fitted with approved parts, you can earn a significantly better resale value when the time comes to switch to a new vehicle. This is due to the unreliability of non-certified spare parts and the likelihood that vehicles equipped with them may be deemed dangerous.
