The old aged mantra ‘you get what you pay for’ definitely applies to parts. People tend to be attracted to aftermarket parts mainly for their lower costs. Those lower costs frequently bring with them lower or sub-par performance. When these parts fail prematurely, you will have to bring your car to the shop again and will be paying for labor to replace the item again, thus spending more money, time, and effort than if the job was done right the first time. And that is if that poor quality part did not leave you stranded on the side of the road. They are counter-intuitive. Ultimately you will end up spending more money to do the job again, which defeats the purpose of buying the cheaper part, to begin with. We believe in doing the job right the first time.
