e eyes. All chrome elements, bumper and mirrors reflect the world like a crooked mirror. In your mind you hear the dynamic, majestic gurgling of the engine playing with its eight cylinders working in the V system. A classic engine, "they don't do that anymore". You open the door, the leather of the chair creaks under your pressure. You put the key in the ignition, turn ... Silence. A nervous thought is racing in your head. Battery? Starter? Carburetor? You reach for the phone and search. Google, slogan: "American fault cars". The search engine spits out the addresses of mechanics specializing in overseas cars in no time. You choose the number of one of them.
- Do you have parts for US cars? You start the conversation with a doubting question.
- Of course. How can we help?
You describe the situation. The mechanic calms you down with a polite voice. You arrange a repair. Soon your monster will talk again.
However, it is worth waiting for them
Parts for cars from the USA are hard to get, especially the least popular ones. However, it is worth waiting for an experienced company to bring them in so that the apparent savings do not turn out to be a real waste of money.
American cars are becoming more and more popular in Poland, but also in Europe. Most often, however, used cars are imported, which - naturally - need to be serviced and repaired from time to time.
The problem is that authorized repairers that repair cars overseas are like medicine. So only a few companies import parts for cars from the USA and it is not easy to get them.
However, there are quite a few substitutes on the market, but it is worth remembering that the price is not always the result of only the "stamp", i.e. the brand. Often, quality drops along with it, so it is better to consider whether the apparent savings on the purchase of a cheaper part will not end with another visit to the workshop, a break in the possibility of using the car and - unfortunately - other unplanned expenses that could have been avoided.
