Toronto, Ontario — The LKQ Corporation took a step in providing its customers peace-of-mind yesterday, by introducing its new Promise of Calibration, further assuring the quality of its parts.
The Promise of Calibration states that “LKQ Corporation warrants that all recycled OEM, reconditioned OEM and KeysIQ parts purchased directly from LKQ and installed on a private passenger vehicle, are suitable for the calibration of appropriate ADAS components with properly operating systems.”
Alternative replacement parts, along with glass sold by LKQ companies, are now additionally warranted to permit vehicle calibration on any ADAS-equipped car, truck or SUV.
LKQ will also provide further assistance by supplementing the Promise of Calibration to include the actual diagnostic and calibration labour operations. When performed by an LKQ company— such as Elite Electronics, VeTech or Automotive Electronics—LKQ stands behind those calibration operations with full indemnification.
“Providing this level of comfort and commitment for our parts and services benefits all stakeholders within the collision repair and glass industries including repair shops, insurers, and most importantly, vehicle owners,” said Terry Fortner, North American vice president of sales and marketing for LKQ.
The Promise of Calibration is a complement to LKQ’s Promise of Protection, which was introduced in 2012. The Promise of Protection indemnifies licensed auto repair shops that purchase and install any LKQ recycled OEM, aftermarket or remanufactured product on private passenger vehicles and light trucks. The combination of both the Promise of Protection and the new Promise of Calibration aims to provide an enhanced level of quality assurance to LKQ’s customers.
