Prestige Imports Uses Only Acura Genuine Parts
Acura quality doesn’t happen by accident
Acura Genuine Parts are designed and tested by Acura for specific vehicles. The parts installed on your vehicle during the collision repair process must flawlessly integrate with the sophisticated performance and safety systems that are part of every Acura. Don’t entrust your safety to sub-standard parts.
Industry reporting suggests that over 40% of repairs include aftermarket parts*. This statistic raises serious concerns about performance, fit & finish quality, and safety when having your vehicle repaired at a non-certified Acura body shop.
Aftermarket Parts: A copy of a copy
Claims that non-OEM parts are “just as good” as Acura Genuine Parts should be viewed with deep skepticism. Aftermarket parts do not have to meet Acura specifications and they are typically created by “reverse engineering” the real parts. There is no requirement that they be built to the same quality standards. The non-OEM parts could use different specifications, materials, or manufacturing methods. Also, aftermarket parts are not required to undergo crash testing to ensure their performance with your Acura vehicle’s safety systems.
It’s Your Acura: You do have a voice in the process. Use it or lose it.
You have an important role in returning your Acura to its pre-accident condition. You have the most vested interest in restoring your Acura vehicle’s look, safety, structural integrity, and performance.
We would suggest that you get involved in the process. Ask questions. Learn your rights. And choose the certified Acura collision repair facility you feel can deliver the best results.
