These are parts that were likely taken from a car that was in an accident that was not worth repairing. Or they could have been taken off of a car that was in one of the floods along the Gulf Coast flood-damaged cars. Have you ever seen how badly cars rust along the coast? We are all about our environment but we have never read or heard of any car manufacturer that recommends anything other than new OEM parts in the repair of their cars as there is no way of knowing the quality and safety of these parts. Are they twisted from the other accident? Are they even OEM parts? Are there future rust issues because it was in a flood? How was the part handled in the junkyard? What’s the warranty? Most do not have a warranty worth the paper it was printed on…. The list goes on…..
