Saving money is important, but so is having the right coverage to protect your assets against financial loss. Why not do both?
Typically when a vehicle is involved in an accident, the insurance company has some flexibility with the parts that are included in the repair estimate. They could be used parts, new parts manufactured by a third party vendor, or new parts made by the car manufacturer. The important point to understand is that the consumer does not choose which parts are used.
With the OEM Loss Settlement Endorsement, the insurance company is obligated to use new parts furnished by the original equipment manufacturer to repair or replace damaged parts. If the OEM parts are out of production or not available, you are reimbursed for the difference in price between the new OEM part and the part that you authorize for the repair (if the parts are less expensive). This coverage is typically available for vehicles less than 10 years old.
