Three Year Replacements

New vehicles are great. They smell nice, they run well, and they get you where you need to go. These vehicles need very little maintenance outside of schedule oil changes and tire rotations. After a few years of constant use it is no wonder that your vehicle will begin to break down. This is from normal wear and tear on the engine and other components. Typically around year three we see quite a few components that need to be replaced. As an owner, what type of parts do you choose to replace these worn out parts with? The answer should always be OEM auto parts. 

At the three year mark these vehicle parts may need to be replaced with genuine OEM auto parts:

  • Spark Plugs: Spark plugs often stop working due to carbon fouling that is not due to a failure of a spark plug. Carbon fouling is due to a faulty auto choke system, fuel injection system, electrical systems, etc. Spark plugs can also stop working over time and should always be replaced with an OEM spark plug.
  • Headlights: New headlights have a very long life but with excess use they begin to fade. Headlights are an important safety feature and should only be replaced with OEM parts. 
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System: The tire monitoring system is a portion of the onboard computer system that tends to need recalibration or a complete replacement around 3 years. Never replace an onboard computer system with an aftermarket system or parts. This is grounds for quick failure.
  • Brake Rotors: Brake rotors wear down in year three due to use. Since the brakes of any vehicle are the most important safety feature they should only be replaced with genuine OEM auto parts to ensure reliability.
