More than eight in every ten people planning to buy a car in the next year or two agree that vehicles repaired and maintained with genuine parts are a better investment when compared to a car repaired with non-genuine parts.
Genuine parts and accessories will protect your investment in your car, with vehicles repaired and maintained with genuine parts valued highly by Australian vehicle buyers.
Demonstrating the value of insisting on genuine car parts, new research from motoring industry initiative Genuine is Best surveyed Aussies looking to buy a car in the next one or two years.
Almost seven in ten car buyers would pay more for a vehicle repaired with genuine parts.
More than eight in 10 stated a preference to purchase a vehicle repaired with genuine parts, over a car repaired with non-genuine parts.
80 per cent identified vehicles repaired with genuine parts as a better investment.
89.5 per cent agreed the quality of parts used to repair and maintain a vehicle is important to them when buying a car.
Near nine in every ten cited genuine parts, accessories, and servicing as important to maintaining a vehicles value.
The release of the research aligns with a Genuine is Best campaign warning Aussie drivers about the risk of getting ‘stitched up’ by repairers and insurers using non-genuine parts and accessories without notifying owners during vehicle repairs and maintenance.
