Insurance & Collision Repair
Most policies require that the vehicle be returned to “pre-accident” condition*. Exactly what that means isn’t always clear, but it certainly means more than looking like it used to from a few feet away.
Like parts, not all insurance is the same. If your policy doesn’t specify OE parts, your insurance company may require the use of a specific amount of “non-original” parts—parts that may not have been crash or performance tested, particularly with your Acura’s systems, and may not meet Acura’s safety, quality and performance standards.
And a repair with anything other than Acura original equipment parts, and Acura recommended repair procedures, may compromise the safety, structural integrity and vehicle systems of your Acura, as well as the finish, performance, durability and value *PRE-ACCIDENT CONDITION: The condition of the vehicle immediately before it was damaged. This includes the restoration of:
a) The function of the vehicle and all its systems
b) The safety of the vehicle as designed by the manufacturer, including its ability to withstand and absorb subsequent impact and protect the occupants in the same manner as an undamaged vehicle
c) The appearance of the vehicle
Genuine Acura Parts
Your authorized Acura Dealer is the best choice for all your Acura needs. In the event of an accident, your Acura Dealer will use only genuine Acura parts for your vehicle. Furthermore, they have the technical knowledge and expertise to repair your vehicle. Genuine parts are the only parts manufactured to Acura’s exacting standards for fit, finish and corrosion protection. They are the only parts covered by Acura's warranty.
DID YOU KNOW?
Many car leases, including AFS leases, require the use of original equipment parts.
