The problem with used auto parts.

There are two problems, as we see it, with used auto parts.

#1 on everyone’s list is the fact that the parts are used, which means their life expectancy is limited compared to new parts.  There is no denying this fact in the strictest sense. This may sound like a strange thing to say, coming from a company which makes its living selling used car parts, but the truth is the truth, in most situations.  We will explain our hesitancy in making an absolute statement a little further into this article.

The second problem with used auto parts is the fact that, to use them and save money, you need to be able to do the work yourself.  You need to adopt a DIY attitude regarding car repair and car maintenance, and the percentage of car owners in the U.S. who feel comfortable with this approach is very low. Stated simply, car repair is intimidating for most car owners. Gone are the days when kids just grew up learning about car repair from their fathers.  These days it is just assumed that car repair is going to be done by car mechanics, so why bother learning how?

The rewards offered with used car parts.

On the flip side of the coin, there are two major rewards for purchasing used car parts from salvage yards.

First, you save money, in the neighborhood of 40%, on car repair and car maintenance, and that’s just on the cost of the parts.  If you are doing DIY car repair and maintenance, you are also saving on the mechanic labor, meaning you are basically saving about 80%, and that adds up to thousands in savings each year.

The second reward is the feeling of accomplishment you feel when you successfully replace brake pads or a fuel pump. There is something very cool in fixing things yourself rather than hiring out, and today, with YouTube, it has never been easier to learn the basics by yourself.

A flip of the coin and what is most important to you.

And this, then, is where the proverbial rubber meets the road.  If you need to cut down on car repair costs, DIY is the way.  If money is no concern to you, take your car to the mechanic.  As for the excuse that used parts do not last as long as new parts, this is really splitting hairs.  Car parts are manufactured to last at least 100,000 miles.  A used fuel pump, only used for 20,000 miles, is really not a risk.  The life remaining in that fuel pump makes the savings at wrecking yards very sweet indeed.
