Remanufactured parts meet GM approved service part requirements and are made from previously used components in a process that involves disassembly, inspection, cleaning, update of software and replacement of parts as appropriate, testing, and reassembly.

What is a remanufactured part?

A remanufactured part is made from previously used components in a process that involves disassembly, inspection, cleaning, update of software and replacement of parts as appropriate, testing, and reassembly that meets with GM's approved service parts requirements.
It is important to mention that the use of remanufactured service parts is a common practice within the automotive industry. Every new and remanufactured part used in the service of your vehicle incorporates the latest GM technologies and innovations, meeting similar standards as GM Genuine parts, where both new and remanufactured parts are tested and validated to GM specifications.

Which are GM's approved requirements?

They are the internal processes that GM requires assuring that any part incorporates the latest GM technologies and innovations. These parts are remanufactured to meet GM requirements for GM Genuine Parts used to service your vehicle.

What are the benefits of using a GM refurbished part?

These are some of the benefits of using a GM remanufactured part:

  • Remanufactured Parts are warranted by GM.
  • High-quality.
  • Competitive prices.
  • Products are improved and updated to reflect the latest of GM technology, engineering, and design.
  • Less time to obtain them.
  • Helps the environment by reducing waste production, as well as the reduction in the use of raw materials.
What kind of warranty does GM provides for remanufactured parts or service parts?

If the part is installed by an authorized Service Center under your vehicle's Warranty Policy coverage, that remanufactured part or service part will be covered by the vehicle warranty described in such Policy.
If your vehicle is out of its Warranty Policy coverage, the remanufactured part or service part you request to be installed will also have a warranty in accordance to the terms and policy specified for such part (For more details, please refer to Warranty Info in http://www.genuinegmparts.com site).

Is a remanufactured part or service part considered a GM genuine part?

Yes, a remanufactured part or service part shall be considered as a GM genuine part, as it incorporates the latest GM technologies and innovations, meeting similar standards as GM Genuine Parts, and is tested and validated to GM requirements. Therefore, a remanufactured part -as a GM Genuine part- is not an imitation part.

How does the remanufacturing process helps the environment?

The remanufacturing process helps the environment in different ways:

  1. Landfills are spared from the dumping of millions of tons of iron, aluminum, copper, etc. This "core charge" ensures parts are returned to be rebuilt.
  2. Because products that are remanufactured are kept out of the waste stream longer, landfill space is preserved and air pollution is reduced from products that would have had to be resmelted or otherwise reprocessed. As a result, millions of barrels of oil or comparable forms of energy may be saved.
  3. Remanufacturing gives a product numerous lives instead of just one, thereby saving on raw materials. Rebuilders annually save millions of tons of natural resources such as iron, aluminum, copper, etc.
How can I help the environment when buying a remanufactured part or service part?

Because by giving a new use to a part or service part, we reduce the generation of waste. In the reassembling process (remanufacture) we reduce the use of raw materials; therefore, we may reduce pollutants such as the greenhouse gas emissions as well as reduce the use of energy, among other benefits.
In addition, GM as company is committed to reducing waste and pollutants, and conserving resources and recycling materials at every stage of the product lifecycle in accordance with our Environmental Principles to preserve natural resources and promote recycling whenever possible.
