Buying the Right Part

EV Universe Inc., cares about your safety and also want to prevent damage to your vehicle. With any vehicle, purchasing and installing auto parts can be a complicated and difficult process. While we always do our best to ensure we provide you with accurate and current information, errors can occur. These errors may cause an incorrect part to be displayed as the result of a search.

For these reasons and more, you must always do, at a minimum, the following 4 steps to help ensure that the part you buy is the correct one for your repair project.

  • Make sure ALL of the vehicle information you provide is correct. This includes the vehicles you define and any questions that you may answer on our web site. Read and understand ALL of the informational checkmarks listed with each part. If there are codes or statements that do not match your vehicle, do not buy the part. If there is information you do not understand, contact us to find out what it means.
  • Please feel free to contact one of our Customer Service team members. See our Contact Us page HERE.
  • Compare website photos with your old part (if applicable) and vehicle. If photos of the item you are purchasing are available on our website and compare them with the old part and make sure they match.
  • If applicable, when the part arrives compare it with the part being replaced. If for any reason it does not appear to be the correct part, contact us to confirm that it is the correct part before proceeding.

Using these steps will assist you in selecting the correct part to get the job done right. Remember that, as with any large, powerful and complex system, failure to select the right part for your vehicle may result in damage to your vehicle, serious injury or death. Do not risk it. If in doubt, get answers from one of our friendly and helpful EV Universe Inc. team members or contact the manufacturer directly.
