Earth Day is April 22, and you can add asking your vehicle technician for Mopar Remanufactured (Reman) Parts to the list of planet friendly actions that support the worldwide celebration of the annual environmental event. In addition to placing plastic products in the recycling bin or depositing trash in a compost pile, choosing Mopar Reman Parts helps put tons of materials to work that would be otherwise be earmarked for landfills.

Earth-friendly benefits of Mopar Remanufactured Parts offer a second life to automotive parts.

Mopar Remanufactured Parts give new meaning to the phrase "environmental movement," offering a second life to automotive parts that would otherwise be discarded. Mopar Reman Parts also are produced with a smaller carbon footprint and result in cleaner air, earth and water resources. The following 2013 statistics illustrate the earth friendly benefits of choosing Mopar Reman Parts:

  • The Mopar Reman Parts program puts to work more than 5,793 tons of material that would have been thrown out
  • Mopar Reman Parts repurposed 14,173 semi-trailers of material — loads that would have been headed for landfills
  • Worldwide, raw materials saved by the remanufacturing industry in a year could fill 155,000 railroad cars, forming a train 1,100 miles long
  • Annual energy savings worldwide from the remanufacturing industry equals the electricity generated by five nuclear power plants — or 10,744,000 barrels of crude oil, which corresponds to a fleet of 233 oil tankers

"Mopar Reman Parts are proud to be green," said Kathy Wideman, Head — Mopar Repair and Remanufactured Parts Portfolio. "The Mopar brand is committed to building products that are friendly for the environment, and through the Mopar Reman Parts program, tons of used parts are recycled and fully remanufactured with existing components each year, avoiding much of the energy usage and waste that occurs when manufacturing a completely new part. And in addition to being environmentally friendly, Mopar Reman parts are pocketbook friendly as well, offering quality at an exceptional value, retaining a vehicle's integrity and saving money." 

Mopar continued to demonstrate the brand's dedication to caring for the planet in 2013, adding more than 200 part numbers to its growing catalog of more than 4,000 Mopar Remanufactured Parts. The portfolio includes 25 different product lines available as high-quality, cost-effective options for consumers to choose from. Examples include light repair products such as alternators, starters, brake calipers, A/C compressors and electronic control modules, as well as powertrain products like engines, cylinder heads, transaxles and transmissions.  

Mopar Reman Parts are priced right without sacrificing quality. Components are completely disassembled and carefully inspected and tested to meet or exceed the latest Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) specs. All Mopar Reman Parts also feature the latest OEM upgrades, providing customers the latest technology, redesigned components and module updates at a value competitive in comparison to OEM parts. 

When installed at a Chrysler Group dealership or FIAT studio, customers can rest assured that technicians trained to work on their vehicles are installing Mopar Reman Parts engineered and designed specifically to fit their ride, unlike competitive aftermarket reman parts. And for even more peace of mind, most Mopar Reman Parts are backed by the nationally recognized Mopar 12-month/12,000-mile limited warranty, while Mopar Reman powertrain components are supported with a 3-year/100,000-mile limited warranty.
