Should I buy certified or uncertified aftermarket parts for my car?

We typically recommend that everyone get a certified part for any major component of the car. A few components like radiators, door handles, and mirrors do not have certified versions and will fit your car without the added costs.

Another way to look at it is that if you plan on keeping your car for 5 years or more, get a certified part. If you plan on selling your car soon, an uncertified part may be the most cost-effective answer.
