Georgia NBC News Consumer Alerts on Aftermarket vs. OEM

South Georgia auto body shops warn you to check your car insurance policies.  The replacement parts your insurance company requires for your car could put your life in jeopardy.

Shop owners say more South Georgians are buying cut rate car insurance.  One way they cut costs is to require body shops to use the cheapest parts when fixing your car.

Do you know the difference between OEM or AF parts, and have you checked your car insurance policy to see which type of parts they require be used repairing your car?

Body shop owners say you should, because inferior parts could compromise your safety. Charlie's Paint and Body owner Tammy Mays says some of the auto parts that insurance policies say must be used in repairing cars are just plain junk.
