LKQ Corporation has announced the creation of a warranty protection program in the aftermarket category called the LKQ Promise of Protection. Effective immediately, LKQ will indemnify licensed auto repair shops against injury or damage caused by a defective aftermarket vehicle replacement product distributed by LKQ.
“We have always stood behind our product quality and offer lifetime warranties for all of our aftermarket crash parts, that’s not new,” said Rob Wagman, president and CEO of LKQ. “Our Promise of Protection goes one giant step further by offering product liability indemnification. This new program clearly demonstrates our higher level of quality assurance beyond the lifetime warranty, so our customers can be totally confident when buying and using our products in their repair businesses.”
LKQ says its alternative parts offering has the industry’s widest assortment of products including CAPA and NSF certified parts, ISO-9001 and TS-16949 manufacturing by many suppliers, and Platinum Plus parts distributed through its ISO-9001 facilities. Also, LKQ offers a proprietary quality assurance program, AQRP, to its insurance and fleet customers.
The Promise of Protection is subject to certain terms and conditions.
