A properly remanufactured automotive part is the functional equivalent of a new part and is most of the time virtually indistinguishable from a new one. Remanufactured parts allow you to save money, because customarily the price is approx. only 60% of a new unit. This level is achieved by the material and energy savings realised in the Remanufacturing process.

Remanufactured parts are readily available from Wholesalers and retailers of automotive spare parts, at competitive terms and including warranty as for new units. A remanufactured part will cause no delay in servicing cars, it will fit exactly as a new unit. For older car models they are essential to proper maintenance because new units may not be available any longer.
Compared to repaired parts, which essentially means make it only operational again, remanufactured parts which are fully rebuilt, save you potential further problems. Another alternative is to fit used parts, which have been removed from a scrap vehicle, and resold with little or no work on it. Here again a remanufactured part will save you further potential problems. Repair or used parts are alternatives to a remanufactured or new unit, but if a car is to be put back on the road reliably, these alternatives are simply not good value for money. Imagine the cost and the hassle from a second break down if the replacement unit fails again.
