We completely understand wanting to save money, so we offer the option to buy vehicle parts at our dealership. Our parts center is proud to say they offer genuine Kia parts.

We want to ensure anyone who buys a part from our parts center that they will have a genuine Kia part. If we do not have what you need in stock, we will order the part for you and let you know when we have it.
Not every auto part is created with the same care as a Genuine Kia Part
Throughout the auto industry, you would think all parts would be created equal. Unfortunately, they are not. Keep reading to learn some of the terms you may come across when working with independent repair facilities.
Suppliers who create aftermarket parts usually do so by making the parts look similar to a Genuine Kia part but has no affiliation to Kia. Aftermarket parts have not been tested or approved by Kia and therefore are not covered by any Kia warranty.
These parts are sometimes known as “Like Kind and Quality” parts, but they are usually obtained from wrecked or totaled vehicles. The origin of the parts is not always reliable or fit correctly with the vehicle it is supposedly for. These parts are not covered by any Kia warranties.
Counterfeit parts are designed by a manufacturer, typically outside the country, to have the appearance of a Genuine Kia Part. They may look identical or be boxed the same but are not. These parts are not covered by warranty and are unlikely safe to use.
