Hyundai: No Aftermarket, Imitation or Recycled Parts in Collision Repairs

Hyundai Motor America has joined a growing list of OEMs recommending that repairers avoid using recycled parts or aftermarket parts in collision repairs. The automaker has released a statement saying that it does not support the use of "aftermarket, imitation or recycled collision repair parts" because the parts could compromise a vehicle’s performance in a crash.

Following is the complete statement from Hyundai:

Hyundai Motor America does not support the use of aftermarket, imitation or recycled collision repair parts. The use of such parts or other non-original Hyundai equipment for the repair of any collision-damaged vehicle may negatively affect crashworthiness and occupant safety during a collision, therefore is not supported by Hyundai. Additionally, Hyundai does not support the use or re-use of components removed or recycled from an existing collision-damaged vehicle.

Hyundai vehicles and Hyundai Genuine Parts are designed and manufactured to meet Hyundai’s exact engineering specifications and to protect vehicle occupants in collisions. Genuine Hyundai Parts, including all elements of Hyundai’s air bag occupant restraint systems, are crash-tested to ensure they meet the U.S. government’s rigid collision safety and crash protection standards. Genuine Hyundai Parts work in concert to ensure occupant protection, vehicle integrity and proper airbag deployment.
