MIA Press Release – Genuine is Best


Thursday 6 September


David Crawford, Chief Executive Officer of the Motor Industry Association says, “in response to several unfortunate issues arising from the use of third party parts in vehicle repairs or servicing, New Zealand Distributors of new vehicles are urging vehicle owners that when you have your vehicle repaired or serviced, insist on genuine parts sourced from an authorised dealer”.

Brake failure, catastrophic engine damage and misfiring airbags - these are just some of the serious issues that sometimes stem from the use of non-genuine parts in car, motorcycle and truck repairs and services.

Genuine parts are new and the only parts approved and warranted by the vehicle's maker.

“Unlike parts supplied by third party suppliers, a genuine part is made or selected by the maker of your vehicle and tested by that maker for quality and safety. A genuine part ensures your vehicle drives, functions and protects you the way it was intended by the manufacturer of that vehicle" said Mr Crawford.

Vehicle owners can only guarantee supply of genuine parts by sourcing them through the vehicle maker's authorised supply chain. Use anything else and vehicle owners may be taking a risk.
