And out of Nissan’s keenness to preserve everyone’s safety, the company calls on its customers to pay attention to five main points when purchasing spare parts:
The first point that customers should pay attention to is the way the product is packaged. Genuine parts are usually sold in high-quality boxes. Counterfeit parts are sold in lower-quality boxes and it is possible that the writing on the outer packaging and/or in the user manual contains spelling or grammatical errors.
2- Shape and texture
It is very important to manually check the new part and compare it with the old one that needs to be replaced because the original parts are exactly the same. In the event of a total mismatch or slight difference in color, weight, material, or measurements, the item is counterfeit.
If the price of spare parts is significantly lower, then most likely the part is not original. Although the customer may be attracted to the parts that are much cheaper than the original parts available at authorized dealers, this is a sign that the spare part is counterfeit and the customer should refrain from buying it.
4- Authorized agents
The best solution to these challenges is to buy spare parts directly from authorized dealers and avoid dealing with dealers who sell original and counterfeit parts so that they do not pay the price of original parts for counterfeit products. The customer will definitely find original parts at authorized dealers, in addition to the latest catalogs and manuals. He can also benefit from the expertise of their highly skilled and trained technicians to ensure that their vehicles receive the attention they need when servicing.
5- Serial number
Most genuine parts, including genuine Nissan oil, have a unique serial number shown on the outer packaging that matches the part number itself and can be used to trace the part’s provenance and check whether it is genuine.
A wide range of Nissan products is available in the Kingdom, including genuine Nissan oils and accessories, as well as a wide variety of spare parts. The Nissan after-sales service network also includes three maintenance centers distributed between Amman and Irbid, a body maintenance center, and a point of sale for original spare parts that were recently opened in the Wihdat area. When servicing their vehicles at one of Nissan’s authorized after-sales service centers, customers benefit from a range of benefits including a repair guarantee, technical expertise, on-time service, and other benefits.
