Motorists are being warned that now is the time to check that their vehicles are in the best possible condition as financial problems and job cuts continue to plague car part suppliers. is urging motorists to inspect their vehicles and replace defective car parts as soon as possible to ensure that their vehicles do not run the risk of spending prolonged periods of time off the road due to an undersupply in the industry.

With the motor industry hit hard by the current economic recession, a fall in orders from vehicle manufacturers for car parts has left the car parts industry facing cuts in productions, job cuts and in more extreme cases, closure.

Earlier this week, 500 jobs were put at risk after one new parts manufacturer went into administration whilst others have dramatically cut down on production in recent months.

That could affect motorists who need to find replacement car parts in the coming months, as manufacturers and garages scramble to get their hands on what limited supplies exist, particularly for less common models of vehicle. That could lead to their vehicle spending much longer in the garage, out of use, while new parts arrive., one of the UK’s leading car parts suppliers, is therefore urging consumers to make sure that they aren’t caught out by the car parts downturn when they eventually do need to fit replacement components.

Mr Peter May Supplier Services Manager at says "If ever there was a time that motorists could take advantage of the downturn in the economy, it is now.

"Prices are keen particularly when it comes to used car parts. Waiting should not be left until tomorrow, as faulty parts left on a vehicle could have a knock on effect to other parts leading to further expenses down the road."
