Why Ask For Volvo Genuine Parts?

Why Ask For Volvo Genuine Parts?

Keep Your Volvo a Volvo

Specifying that Volvo Genuine Replacement Parts get installed using proper repair techniques sounds like a simple task but its not. Sometimes insurance companies ask body repair shops to install what they call "quality replacement parts" or "imitations" instead of Volvo Genuine Collision Parts. These non-genuine replacement parts may save the insurance companies money, but using them could be very costly to you in terms of performance, value and safety. Non-genuine parts may look just like the genuine part, but looks can be very deceiving. To find out more, read on any of the topics below.

Safety

At Volvo, safety is a fact of life. Volvo Genuine Safety Components and systems are designed to interact to reduce the harmful effects of collision. Nothing is more important than the safety of those you love and it's reassuring to know that Volvo continues to be an industry leader in safety.

 Safety
Fit  
The stringent requirements that make a Volvo what it is go into each and every component in the vehicle. Non-genuine or imitation collision parts are simply not made to Volvo's rigid specifications. Volvo Genuine Collision Parts are manufactured to the tightest tolerances so you get parts that always fit and perform like new. Fit
Integrity
The structural integrity of your Volvo depends on the quality of every body part used. They all work together as part of a complex system designed to optimize your safety in the event of an accident.

Volvo Genuine Hoods, for example, are an integral part of the front energy absorbing structure. In the event of an accident, the Volvo Genuine Hood is designed to fold so that it doesn't go through the windshield. It is also designed to stay firmly attached to the car body. Non-genuine hoods may not perform this way in an accident and could pose a serious threat to your safety.

Another good example is Volvo Genuine Glass. Non-genuine glass may not be manufactured to Volvo's specifications and high quality standards. This can result in improper fit, which could cause the glass to break more easily or come loose during an accident.
