Why buy generic parts?
In March 2000, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reaffirmed that the source of a car’s cosmetic crash parts is irrelevant to crashworthiness. Using a 1997 Toyota Camry, OEM cosmetic parts were removed and the hood replaced with a CAPA-certified hood from an aftermarket supplier. The crash test results from a 40-mph frontal offset impact were compared with results from an identical crash test performed on an identical Camry with the OEM parts still intact. Both Camrys performed with distinction and earned good crashworthiness ratings according to the Institute’s evaluation procedures. CAPA-certified parts have been proven to perform identically to car company brand parts in every significant aspect. With this data as proof, CAPA uses the term “functionally equivalent” to describe how its parts rank in relation to the OEM cosmetic parts it replaces. This is a much stronger term than “of like kind and quality,” the term used in state and local laws and regulations to describe the standard for replacement parts used in the repair of automobiles.
So with this information in hand, we believe and find that Generic parts are as "friendly" as those expensive dealer parts.
