ABPA Opposes Nebraska Legislative Bill 602


...the car companies have no incentive to keep their pricing in check without competition.


Studies have shown that by just having an aftermarket part available in the marketplace, the car companies will lower their list pricing by as much as 8%, if not more.


Furthermore, aftermarket parts are typically priced anywhere between 25% to 60% less than the car company branded parts.


The car companies and other proponents of these self-serving repair procedures will often cite safety concerns with aftermarket parts.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the federal agency that oversees transportation matters, has concluded aftermarket parts are cosmetic in nature and do not affect vehicle safety. The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) has come to similar conclusions on the safety of aftermarket parts after years of crash testing. They have also stated the only major difference between aftermarket parts and car company parts is the high price variance.


Meanwhile, the car companies have been under scrutiny over the past few years with the increased amount of safety recalls they have had to administer due to the faultiness of their own parts. Thank you for your time and consideration.


Edward Shalamy, executive director, ABPA.
