Most insurance policies will have verbiage to allow them to use Aftermarket, Salvage, LKQ and Reconditioned parts in the repair of your vehicle. The definition of these parts are, 1- AFTERMARKET = parts made by a source other than the vehicle manufacturer, usually made in Taiwan. 2- SALVAGE = parts removed from a vehicle that has sustained enough damage to be declared a total loss. No form of validation performed to know their integrity. 3- LIKE KIND QUALITY = Not really sure who came up with this term, best guess is it supposed to be of the same quality, again no form of validation. 4- Reconditioned = An (OEM) part that has been damaged enough to require it be replaced, then it is repaired or the fancy term reconditioned and sold to a collision repair shop to be installed on your vehicle. There are numerous parts that insurance companies attempt to use that fall in these categories. (Example) Wheels, every vehicle manufacturer has a position statement against using a salvage, used or reconditioned wheel. the position statement also says that the only repairs allowed to a wheel should be minor cosmetic finish repairs. There should be NO welding, machining, filling, grinding in the repair of a wheel, and yet all of these things that should NOT be done are required to recondition a wheel. Some insurance companies offer an OEM rider policy, if purchased you will get all OEM parts in your repairs.
