The first question always asked about salvage car parts is how much? The second question is almost always how reliable are used car parts?

We will answer Question #2 in this article by All Import Auto Parts, serving the Greater Fort Worth area with affordable and reliable used auto parts and used truck parts. Call us for all of your DIY car repair needs.

The reliability of salvage car parts depends upon . . .

Listen, we understand why people always ask about reliability.  Your vehicle is very important to you, and putting used car parts in that vehicle, for the purpose of fixing it, sounds sketchy at best.  Wouldn’t new be better than used?  Just stands to reason, then, that new would be better.

Let’s address that point.  People almost always shop at salvage yards to save money, specifically because new auto parts are so expensive and their budget does not allow them to spend that kind of money.

If money is, in fact, an issue for you, then the question does, in a very real sense, become a moot point.  If all you can afford is a used part, then the goal should be to find the very best in used auto parts.  You will never hear us claim that used is better than new as far as the life of a specific part, but what you will hear us claim is this: most car parts, if not all, are manufactured with at least a 100,000 mile life expectancy in them; some are expected to last 200,000 miles.

If the used part you are purchasing came off a wrecked car with only 20,000 miles on it, to our way of thinking, that part is as new as used can be.  So, are used auto parts reliable? For a specific answer you would need to know the life of that part; for a subjective answer, you need to be able to trust your local salvage yard personnel.

Ask for a warranty, always.

Our suggestion: ask for a warrant on any salvage car part.  If the salvage yard company advertised reliable parts then they should put their warranty where their mouth is.

And what is a good warranty?

The All Import Auto Parts way of doing business.

All Import Auto Parts offers an industry-best 90-day warranty on all parts sold at our place of business, and before we even make that offer we test each and every part we sell.  And why do we do that when so many wrecking yards don’t?  Because when we opened this business, many years ago, our goal was to be the ‘trusted salvage yard” in Fort Worth and to be in business for a very long time.
