You may look at your damaged vehicle and say "I want ALL my parts replaced!" But there can be a lot of factors that go into making the right decision for the safest, least invasive repair process.

Some parts can’t be repaired, others may be better to repair if repair is an option. Some things your collision repair facility might be considering is protecting against future corrosion, the OEM procedural requirements, part availability and even potentially the impact on cost. What is most important is to talk with your repair professional about what you want, and what questions you have, and let them explain their recommended approach.
