As it is known to all that first automobile was manufactured in France by Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot sometime around 1769, it was followed by automobile patent in the United States. With the advent of automobiles came the need for its different parts, every automobile requires repair for the sake of maintenance either at a early or a later stage. At times the repairs need immediate attention to control the wear and tear and at times it becomes mandatory to get it repaired for normal functioning of the car. Worn out damaged parts require an urgent replacement to avoid further damage to the car. Buying a replacement auto component like Ford wheel hubs involves money and many would like to find one at the lowest possible price. No one likes the idea of sending the car into the garage for repairs. It is a general human tendency to enjoy buying expensive accessories for the car rather than a costly replacement.
The automobile parts manufacturers throw a wide range of options to its customers to choose from while buying a spare component for the car. The current scenario presents three options.
1Used original parts
3Brand new but discounted parts
Each one has its own merits and demerits. The first one is buying the auto component which has been used by someone else before. These components have been manufactured by the same automobile component manufacturer who has manufactured the car. The used component is an OEM which has been tested for the quality by the manufacturer. These are the original components and there is no compromise on the quality. A used OEM may fit only a car of the same model as manufacturers generally introduce minor changes in the design to enhance performance of the vehicle which implies that each component may be model specific. Used auto component can be the best choice as it is cost effective and a product of quality.

The seller of the aftermarket parts should be recognized in the industry and the use of the product of the unrecognized seller may cause the company warranty of the vehicle void. It is something like using the product at your own risk. The standard car makers should recognize these aftermarket auto part makers which are like validating the product.
The best option is always to buy the original product at discounted prices. The major problem here is that you do not always get the components at discounted prices when you need it, they are found only at the discretion of the dealer. Usually the discount is offered on products which are not very much in demand. It is not feasible to wait for the discount always, so the decision has to be made by the vehicle owner and the best option has to be chosen.
