Differences Between Used, Rebuilt and Remanufactured Auto Parts

Short video describing the differences between used, rebuilt and remanufactured auto parts.

*Used parts: uncertain reliability since there’s no way of knowing how the previous vehicle was driven and maintained or how long the part will last. Risky choice.

*Rebuilt parts: only faulty components are replaced before the unit is reassembled for sale. This method does nothing to address the issues that may have caused the unit to fail prematurely.

*Remanufactured parts: these parts are completely disassembled, cleaned, examined, and 100% tested. Product engineers identify any patterns of failure that caused the units to wear prematurely. Once a problem is identified, hte units are reengineered to correct flaws, making them better than new.
