When are new car parts better than used car parts?

In fact, we hear this question quite often at Used Auto Parts. The answer seems obvious, doesn’t it? New is always better than used, right? New car parts sure last a lot longer than used auto parts or used body parts, right? Not so fast! There are several ways to look at this question, which we will do in this article. Used Auto Parts, US’s premier junkyard. Call for more information on quality auto parts.

How long new car do parts last?
We begin with a difficult question, and one that is actually almost impossible to answer.
Typically engine parts last in excess of 150,000 miles. Brake parts will last approximately 70,000 miles. Timing belt: less than 100,000. Body parts will likely last a million miles if rust is prevented.
All in all, the useful life of a car part depends in large part on how you take care of your car parts. Ensuring that fresh oil is circulated through your engine extends the life of your engine parts.
Price new vs. price used typically, and this is just an estimate, used car parts are 40-50% cheaper than new parts. New brake pads can cost $100; Used brake parts from junkyards can cost you as little as $50. This makes the cost of used auto parts very attractive during tough economic times, especially for people who need transportation to and from work.

Saving in relation to your financial situation
so the question is: how tight is money in your country right now? Can you afford to constantly pay for new car parts or is your budget limited? Buying new brakes can be expensive, especially if you drive a lot throughout the year. Would it make more financial sense to buy used brake parts? We cannot answer this question, but it is a question you should ask yourself. We’ve been in business for over thirty years because many customers have found that it makes sense to buy used rather than knew.
