It’s more than a seal.
Authorizing vehicle repairs with parts that fall short of automaker specs or, worse, don’t
meet federal safety requirements isn’t just risky, it could lead to protracted litigation and
damage a brand for a generation.
But there’s an easy way to avoid trouble: Require the use of replacement crash parts
offered by automakers OR those certified by the Certified Automotive Parts Association—
with no substitutions. In fact, insist on it.
CAPA invented the auto industry’s crash part testing and certification program over 29
years ago to provide the assurance of quality in replacement parts. Every part certified
by CAPA meets our rigid requirements for true functional equivalence to car company
brand parts. And those requirements are fully published, for all to see—because secret
standards just don’t work.
The yellow and blue CAPA Quality Seal is the
gold standard for quality replacement parts.
It won’t just protect your policyholders, it will
protect your brand.
It’s your best defense against inferior parts.
If it isn’t CAPA Certified, it isn’t a genuine replacement part.
