Benefits of genuine Nissan
Improved Repair Appearance
Unlike aftermarket parts made from impressions, genuine Nissan collision parts are created from the same tools that made the original part on your vehicle, providing the precise fit and performance of the original part.
Shortened Repair Time
You want your vehicle repaired as quickly as possible. Genuine Nissan collision parts provide consistent fit. The use of some new aftermarket or salvaged parts may take more time to install and may require modifications to achieve an acceptable fit.
When developed, each part of your vehicle works together to form systems. These systems are rigorously tested to meet strict Nissan and government standards. When a non-genuine part is introduced into a vehicle system, the characteristics of the overall system can be altered, affecting how the system may respond in the future.
Using genuine parts is the best way to ensure your vehicle continues to perform as it was designed.
Using genuine Nissan collision parts for repairs is one way to help keep your vehicle looking “like new,” which can help to maintain its value. The use of new aftermarket and/or salvaged parts may decrease resale value because of potential poor quality fit, finish and appearance. Don’t take chances, insist on genuine Nissan collision parts!
Beware: Your insurance company may
authorize use of these parts for a repair
New Aftermarket Parts
Manufacturers create aftermarket parts for Nissan vehicles by taking measurements and/or impressions of genuine Nissan parts and making a copy. In many cases, these aftermarket parts are made with different materials than the genuine Nissan part as a way to reduce costs. For these reasons, aftermarket parts can negatively affect the fit and finish characteristics.
These parts are from vehicles found in salvage yards that are similar to the year and model of your vehicle. Quite often, parts sold by salvage yards come as complete systems or assemblies. This requires the collision repair shop to disassemble, inspect, clean and/or repair the parts prior to being used in the repair, adding to the amount of time your vehicle must be in the shop. Another concern is that although salvaged parts are from a similar year and model vehicle, there is no guarantee of the condition of the part or what environmental conditions it was exposed to while sitting in the salvage yard—factors that can affect performance.
