Gandrud Parts Center Newsletter


Gandrud Parts Center
GM has just announced a campaign for 956,000 2009-2013 Buick Enclave, Chevy Traverse, GMC Arcadia, and Saturn Outlook with a V-6 LY7 or LLT engine. Click Here. The fix is checking the coolant level and topping it off if needed. Seriously? We need to issue a recall anymore just to get people to check their coolant level? I remember working at the Standard Gas Satation and checking coolant level, oil level, power steering fluid, washing the windshield, and filling the car with gas. Times sure have changed.
If you have any questions or concerns please email me at and I promise to get back to you.

Toyota Parts Rebate Program

Assured Performance Announces Toyota Parts Rebate Program

April 3, 2013—Assured Performance has partnered with Toyota Motor Sales to offer parts rebates to collision repair businesses nationally, the company announced this week.
Toyota will participate in the 100% Write OEM Collision Parts Reward Program that includes a consumer “certificate of authenticity,” rebate incentive and other benefits for participating body shops.
Currently, nearly 3,000 shops participate in Assured Performance’s program, which provides a rebate to repairers when a vehicle is repaired utilizing all-new Toyota collision repair parts.
“We have a quality commitment to our Toyota brand vehicle owners to ensure they are able to receive a proper and safe repair on the vehicles we sell,” said Jerry Raskind, wholesale parts marketing manager, Toyota Motor Sales. “We are excited to introduce programs that help us fulfill our obligations to our customers.”
The program uses an electronic auditing system that ensures that the shop repaired the vehicle using all-new OEM collision parts to repair the vehicle.
The system is provided to the shop at no charge and does not affect existing wholesale dealer discounts or dealer choice.
