A car is one of the most expensive purchases you will make in your life. The funds to buy the car may have come from savings you have worked long and hard to accumulate or you may have taken on a bank loan towards paying for the car.
As it is such a big acquisition, you will no doubt want to take good care of your car to make sure it provides you with many years of happy motoring. Periodically, the car will need servicing and it may even need some new parts from time to time.
If you have a Hyundai car and get it serviced at a registered dealer, you can be assured that they will use genuine Hyundai parts. However, for whatever reason, you may have it serviced at a garage that is not a Hyundai dealership. Some of these garages will use genuine Hyundai parts but there are others that will not. Instead they may use cheaper, inferior parts.
There are a number of reasons why this could be a problem for you and your car including the following:
Hyundai parts have been designed so that they comply with the Australian Design Rules, built to the highest standard. They have been tested in extreme conditions, coming with a 12 month or 20,000 km warranty (whichever comes first). A great deal of research and development goes into the creation of such parts.
Non-genuine parts rarely match the standard of creation of genuine parts. This can impact on a number of safety features and basic functionality. This could lead to additional repairs being needed, thus adding to the cost of your repair bill.
All Hyundai cars come with warranties for the safe running of the vehicle. If you were to use non-genuine car parts rather than genuine ones, you may find that you have voided the warranty. For instance, if it were found that a non-genuine car part had been used and your car’s engine was damaged that would normally have been covered under the warranty, you may not be covered. This could result in a substantial repair bill.
Genuine Hyundai parts are designed to fit perfectly. Therefore, it will probably take a car mechanic less time to fit a genuine part than one that is not. This will prevent any future problems as well as reduce the costs.
You may not be looking to sell your Hyundai at the moment but, in a few years time, you may. When that happens, a prospective purchaser is going to be happier to find you produce receipts showing that genuine Hyundai parts have always been used rather than non-genuine ones. This will increase the value of your vehicle.
