When replacing car parts, you should know that not all car replacement parts are the same. In fact, there are three types of replacement car parts that you should know. Depending on the situation, the type of replacement part may matter. Let’s go ahead and explain the three different types of replacement car parts.
New parts, as the name implies, are those coming fresh from the manufacturers. You’ll go for new parts when you’re sure you’re going to use that car part for a very long time. These are the preferred type if you want to invest in those parts. Car parts such as leafsprings, mufflers, brake pads and wheel cylinders should be bought new since these parts affect the safety of your car. Safety should never be compromised when driving. Moreover, it is worth investing on parts such as the radiator because frequent repairs for parts such as these are expensive, and not to mention a big hassle.
In the case of the computer, you can replace the parts of the CPU and still keep the CPU case to save money. Same goes for some car parts that can be rebuilt. There are some car parts when some of its components would wear out but the casing could still be recycled. An example would be starters, carburetors, and alternators. Some of the parts would wear out but manufacturers can still use the casing. And just like the computer example mentioned earlier, it would be cheaper if you buy these parts and just recycle the casing.
And then there are used car parts. You can usually find these parts in junk shops or in salvage yards. These parts probably came from someone who just sold his car to salvage any monetary value left from the old car. These parts are probably the cheapest among the three types but also the most dangerous as there is no guarantee that they are in good working condition. If you have a car that’s about to be thrown away in about a year, buying these parts may suit you well.
