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.

FCAI Chief Executive Tony Weber said he hoped the research would demonstrate the value of genuine parts and assist drivers to rationalise their often-higher price points.

“The message is very clear. Non-genuine parts reduce the value of your car. Genuine parts do more than protect one of your most valuable investments” he said. “They protect you, your passengers and other road users.”

“Non-genuine parts are not tested, engineered, or proven to the same level as genuine. Australians recognise that fact with their buying behaviour. No one wants their loved ones belted into a car that is potentially less safe, or less functional.”

“You would not buy a knock-off parachute. Don’t get stitched up, don’t buy knock-off parts, or allow them to be fitted to your car. Insist on genuine parts.”
