Repair Shops Make WD First Choice for Domestic Vehicle Ignition Parts According to IMR’s Repair Shop Tracking Study

When looking to purchase ignition parts for domestic vehicles, independent repair shops usually call a warehouse distributor first. According to IMR Inc.’s Repair Shop Tracking Study, 56.3 percent of repair shops said the WD was their first choice for ignition parts while the retailer was the first choice of 37.2 percent of repair shops.

“As with most parts categories, the WD is the first choice and this is no different with ignition parts,” said Bill Thompson, president and CEO of IMR Inc. “However, IMR’s Repair Shop Tracking Study did show that repair shops call the WD first much more for Asian (62.4 percent) and European (63 percent) vehicle ignition parts than they do for domestic vehicles.”
