Now, let’s talk about saving money on used Mercedes parts.
The reality of owning a Mercedes
The Mercedes is a luxury car. Make no mistake about that fact. It has highly-advanced systems, and those highly-advanced mechanical systems are expensive. The latest statistics state that, in order to just do regularly-scheduled maintenance on a newer Mercedes, you should plan on spending about $75 per month for the first five years.
That is costly for the average working stiff who is making twenty bucks an hour; if you are wealthy, not so costly!
The reality of Mercedes parts
As a general statement of fact, new Mercedes parts are expensive. As a general statement of fact, used Mercedes parts, or generic parts which are replica replacements for Mercedes parts, are not as expensive.
Where can you find used Mercedes parts?
If you are into DIY car repair, the logical choice, then, is to buy quality used Mercedes parts. As a general rule of thumb, the best used car parts, no matter the make or model of your car, can be found at local salvage yards, otherwise known as wrecking yards. Yes, there are online used auto parts stores you can purchase from, but it is always best to form a working relationship with a local business if possible. Online purchases are impersonal and not always trustworthy.
How much money can you save with used Mercedes parts?
The industry standard is 40% savings when buying used car parts, or used truck parts, from a salvage yard. You don’t need us to tell you that a 40% savings on a used Mercedes part can be considerable. It can, literally, mean saving hundreds of dollars and that is, after all, the reason for DIY in the first place.
Not all salvage yards are the same
If you live in a city with multiple salvage yards, shop around and find one you trust which offers consistently good deals. Not all salvage yards can be counted on to offer 40% discounts on items. Not all salvage yards, like our own All Import Auto Parts, give 90-day warranties on all parts purchased. Not all salvage yards, like All Import Auto Parts, come with a reputation built over a thirty-year period.
