Discuss GM OE parts with your insurer
GM Original Equipment is the closest to factory installed parts for your GM vehicle. To help promote the proper, safe repair of GM vehicles, it’s important to request OE parts when taking your vehicle in for collision repair.
Check your policy to be sure you’re covered
Check your policy to make sure you are covered for OE parts in all instances. Oftentimes, you may be covered for “parts of the same kind and quality.” Some policies may specify OE parts must be used and other policies may only cover non-OE parts.
Where should I take my vehicle?
Ultimately, you’re in the driver’s seat when it comes to where to take your vehicle for repair, not your insurance company. As GM dealers, we maintain a high standard of customer service and repair so you can feel confident and secure your vehicle is in the right hands.
Keep your GM a GM
Preserve the integrity of your GM vehicle by receiving the proper form, fit, function, and quality you expect from GM Original Equipment, by using GM Genuine Parts and ACDelco parts.
