Should You Buy New or Used Car Parts?

Posted By Birmingham Auto Break on 18/10/2021

When you are faced with a potentially costly repair on your vehicle it almost always raises the question ‘should you buy new or used car parts?’ Like anything, there are advantages and disadvantages to both.

Here are some of the pros and cons of both new and used car parts.

Pros of new car parts:

  • Guaranteed genuine parts.
  • Easier to choose as you are limited to your vehicle’s OEM.
  • No compatibility issues. You can be certain that the part you are buying is authentic and will fit your vehicle.
  • Covered by a lengthy warranty.
  • Most up-to-date car parts.

Cons of new car parts:

Pros of used car parts:

  • Inexpensive and a good mechanic will know where to source quality used car parts.
  • Good quality. Used car parts are normally original OEM parts.
  • A huge variety is available; many scrap car yards offer a vast range of used car parts from all sorts of manufacturers.
  • Fast availability.
  • Environmentally-friendly.

Cons of used car parts:

  • Inconsistent quality. If you don’t know what to look for you may end up with poor quality. However, if you are dealing with someone who knows their car parts you can be confident you will get good quality used parts.
  • Too much choice. It can be overwhelming to choose from the many compatible used parts on the market.
  • Shorter warranties.

Ultimately, used car parts can vastly reduce the cost of repairs to your vehicle. Unless you have very deep pockets, the advantages of buying used parts are significant. When you purchase from a trusted source like Birmingham Auto Break, you can be sure that you are receiving the highest quality car parts from a reliable team of vehicle experts.
