If you own Toyota equipment, you will eventually need to invest in Toyota factory parts
However, there are some people who would rather invest in parts that are not made by Toyota’s factory. These parts, better known as “after-market” parts, may seem like a good investment on the surface, mainly because they have a lower upfront cost than Toyota factory parts. There are several disadvantages to buying after-market car parts…so much so, in fact, that it would greatly behoove you to purchase factory parts, regardless of the vehicle you drive.
Here are some of the disadvantages of after-market parts:
- Non-branded after-market parts make no guarantees in quality. It is honestly a gamble.
- Non-branded after-market parts do not come with any warranty…which means that if the installed part fails there’s no recourse for the wronged consumer.
- Non-branded after-market parts can be overwhelming. There’s enough competition between the branded after-market parts of the world…when you add the vast number of non-branded manufacturers into the fray, you run into nothing but a feeling of being overwhelmed.
What does this mean for you, the consumer?
The most obvious meaning, of course, is that you should not only enlist the aid of a parts professional to guide you on making the correct purchase, but that you should stick to purchasing only genuine factory parts!
