Genuine vs similar
We often get asked about the difference between genuine Mitsubishi parts and similar parts from other manufacturers in the market that appear indistinguishable. Sometimes these similar parts sell for a lesser price, but does the customer get their money’s worth?
It is better to be penny-wise than pound-foolish. Often, the source of non-genuine parts is questionable, and the quality remains unclear. They often come with no warranty, as opposed to those from authorized channels with a factory warranty. Moreover, you receive peace of mind knowing full-well you can go back to the authorized dealer if there are any problems.
