Top Five Most Replaced Vehicle Parts

If you just purchased your vehicle brand new, got a great deal on a newly used car or even bought an older refurbished car, the last thing you want to have to worry about is heading to the mechanic to have something repaired. Most of the time, you want to have the peace of mind that you won’t have to replace anything on your car for at least three years.


The casual car owner does not realize that there are parts that might need to be monitored or replaced after three years that they should be aware of. They range from the expensive to the inexpensive, but all can be a pivotal operation to keep the automobile functioning properly.Top Five Most Replaced Vehicle Parts

Here are the top five of the most replaced parts on your vehicle:


  1. Tire Pressure Monitoring System – After Sept. 1, 2007, under the TREAD Act, all vehicles less than 10,000 pounds produced were required to include a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). Replacing your TMPS is beneficial and can outweigh the hassle of its erratic dysfunction.
  2. Windshields – When it comes to replacing a windshield it’s normally because of bad luck, getting a chip from an errant rock or a branch falling when your vehicle is underneath.
  3. Brake Rotors – This is a part that all vehicle owners have to worry about, but the lifespan of the brake rotor on a newer vehicle has been on the incline due to newer technology and design. Also helps that there are more efficient brake pads and calipers being used in combination to the rotor.
  4. Exterior Lights – All the lights on your car usually have to be replaced sooner or later, but for some reason these types of parts are more replaced on cars that are bought in the last 5 years.
  5. Battery – The number one most replaced part on newer or used vehicles is a battery. Battery can take a beating both literally and figuratively, as some people use their cars more than others and the battery is one of the most used parts on a vehicle.


If you are in the need of a car part or are looking to replace an old part that is on the fritz, look to your local auto yard.
