The insurance company wants to put used parts on my vehicle. Can I demand new parts?
Well… You can demand anything you want, but let’s talk about what is best for your vehicle and what is fair. If you have a vehicle that is only a few years old, then expecting new parts on it is a practical solution. If your vehicle is over 3 years old, and you need a door or fender replaced, you already have a used part on your vehicle, so “fair” says you will probably receive a new “used” parts. This isn’t a bad thing if you work with a reputable vendor of used parts. Ask the repair facility for their policy on used parts and find out what your insurance policy states regarding used parts.
