If you’re having your car serviced ahead of the holiday break, insist that your mechanic use genuine parts acquired through the authorised dealer network.
Genuine parts and accessories are made or selected by your vehicle’s maker. They are rigorously tested and are an integral component of your vehicle. They ensure your vehicle will drive, function and protect you the way it was intended. They have met and exceeded the highest quality, safety and performance standards.
If your car has been repaired or had parts replaced as part of general maintenance, it’s possible that non-genuine parts have been fitted without your knowledge.
Your first choice should always be the car’s dealer service centre that’s nearest to you. They adhere to manufacturer specified repair methods and use only genuine parts.
IMPORTANT: If you are unsure, always head directly to your local vehicle dealer to have your car checked. Never get on the road if you have even a small concern about whether or not your vehicle is safe.
This is general information only. Every vehicle is different and all drivers are responsible for their own vehicles. Always consult your vehicle’s manual, and contact your local vehicle dealer for advice.
