Concern Arises With GM’s Cracked Dashboards

“Hundreds of GM owners have expressed similar concerns. In some cases, small cracks grow and turn into large holes that exposing the mechanical and electronic parts underneath.

A Wisconsin lawsuit alleges GM knows about this defect. According to the suit, GM hired a company to see if common cleaning products like armor all were to blame. But according to papers filed in court, the testing found cleaning products were not the cause

GM says this is not a safety issue – and most of the cars affected, the ’07 to ’11 models are older and out of warranty. The Chevy Tahoe tops the dash complaint list.

GM is not offering a fix, but is paying half the repair costs for some customers.”

ARA Announces Class Action Lawsuit Against Takata Corporation Regarding Airbag Recalls

The Automotive Recyclers Association announced that it has filed a class action lawsuit against Takata Corporation, its subsidiaries TK Holdings, Inc. and Highland Industries, Inc. (collectively “Takata”), and numerous automotive manufacturers relating to the massive recall of vehicles containing defective air bags manufactured by Takata.

ARA brought the class action lawsuit on behalf of all persons and entities that operate professional automotive recycling facilities in the U.S. who have purchased for resale any of the vehicles containing un-deployed and allegedly defective air bags manufactured by Takata. The complaint alleges that Takata and the auto manufacturers withheld and or misled automotive recyclers about the safety and reliability of the allegedly defective air bags, which led recyclers to over pay for now worthless air bags.

Takata was aware of the air bag defect as far back as 2004 when it conducted secret tests on several air bags

ARA is represented by Kessler Topaz Meltzer and Check, LLP. The complaint was filed in the United State District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

When you find it necessary to replace a broken or improperly functioning part in your automobile, house, or some other product, you have several options. You could buy brand new parts, or your could purchase refurbished or rebuilt parts from a dealer. There’s one more possibility, however: you could secure your needed used parts from a salvage yard. Here are the top four reasons to scour the salvage yard instead of investing in new or rebuilt parts:

Saving Money

saving-money-used-partsUsed parts are considerably less expensive than new or rebuilt parts. Especially when it comes to vehicles, you can find used parts for a mere fraction of the price of a brand new part. You may potentially reduce your expenditures by up to half when you buy used. With the money you save from purchasing a part from a salvage yard, you will have more to invest in other ways. You might detail your automobile, for instance, and give it a shiny new look.

Freeing Up the Landfills

landfill-tiresIn recent years, there has been growing concern that we are running out of landfill space. While capacity varies from state to state, some states are especially strained. A professional magazine called Biocyle has reported on “The State of Garbage in America.” In that article, Biocycle revealed that some U.S. states, including Rhode Island and Massachusetts, have only twelve years of landfill capacity left. While some used parts may very well be recycled in other ways, unfortunately quite a few of them still manage to find their way into landfills, where they take up precious space and require years to decompose.

Going Green

green-used-auto-partsBy purchasing used parts from a salvage yard, you are not only saving landfill space, but you are also engaging in both recycling and a reduction of energy consumption. The manufacture of new parts requires the use of some form of energy that could potential pollute the environment or diminish resources. It also requires the use of new materials, such as metal, which could be put to use in the creation of other needed products instead.

Finding an ideal match for older products

start-motorThere’s some truth in the old adage that “they don’t make things like they used to.” Indeed, sometimes they don’t even make the things they used to at all. If you have an older vehicle, for instance, you may have difficulty finding a part that is a precise match. When you can’t find a new part that matches the old one you need to replace, the salvage yard is an ideal place to look.

While it’s tempting to do the easy thing and buy a new part, there are many benefits to buying used. You can save money, save landfill space, recycle, reduce resource consumption, and find ideal matches for older parts. So when it’s time to replace a non-functioning part, don’t forget to consider the salvage yard as one possible option.

Uneedapart was in attendance on June 21 and June 22, 2013 at the New England Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) Regional Trade Show in East Granby, Connecticut. We had an opportunity to give a sneak peak of the new website for 2013. We met with owners and employees of salvage yards in Connecticut, New Hampshire and Massachusetts to demonstrate how their site can be used to quickly find the best used parts in the industry.
