Here at Reeds Garage we only use high quality car parts for safety, durability and your peace of mind. We want you to know your friends and family are travelling in a safe vehicle.
Using sub-standard vehicle parts can affect your warranty and, whilst they might seem cheaper up front, they are likely to need replacing more often. If it seems too good to be true – it generally is.
The amount of counterfeit vehicle parts, such as filters, brake pads, lights, wheel rims and air bags, available is on the rise. The Government issued guidance in July 2018 warning of the dangers to drivers, passengers and road users.
The Government initiative involves a lot of the major players:-
- Trading Standards
- Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit
- Motor Sport Association UK
- NGK Spark Plugs
- Philips Automotive
You can view the Government guidance here – including a fantastic video from BMW showing the safety implications of using sub-standard parts.
In the meantime, rest assured that Reeds Garage will take care of your vehicle and you properly.
