What Does MOPAR Stand For?

At Cline Auto Collision, we’re a MOPAR auto body shop, but what does that actually mean?

What is MOPAR?

MOPAR was named by combining the words “motor” and “parts.” MOPAR is the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FAC) Global Service and Parts division that’s responsible for manufacturing and distributing authentic replacement parts, components and accessories for Fiat, Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge vehicles. Despite being a department within the Fiat Chrysler organization, many car owners refer to all vehicles produced by them as MOPAR.

What is a MOPAR Shop?

As a MOPAR auto body shop, this means we only use OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts for all FAC repairs. The label of MOPAR is the same as saying that we’re FAC certified and means FAC has acknowledged that we meet their strict standards for repairing all makes and models manufactured by them. We make sure not only to use OEM parts but also to follow factory approved procedures and recommended equipment for every FAC repair job.

Why Use MOPAR Parts?

It’s crucial to use MOPAR parts for your FAC vehicles because every part is engineered specifically for your car. While aftermarket or generic parts can cut costs significantly, they may be of poor quality, fit irregularly, or may even potentially alter the appearance or structural integrity of your vehicle. Using MOPAR parts will ensure you receive high-quality repairs that restore your vehicle to factory standards while keeping your vehicle safe and reliable. If you’re in need of repairs for your FAC vehicle, contact Cline Collision Center! We’re proud to be a MOPAR auto body shop offering superior repairs that will make your vehicle look and feel like new.

Many car enthusiasts know MOPAR; we even saw a beautiful Dodge Challenger custom painted with a MOPAR logo emblazoned on the front fender in Santa Rosa recently. All this talk of MOPAR might lead some people to ask…..what does it mean?

MOPAR is a blending of the words Motor and Parts (much like the blending of breakfast and lunch creates brunch). It’s the customer care, service, and parts organization within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Starting in the 1930s the name was introduced as a brand within Chrysler, for example on MOPAR oil filters and antifreeze. It remains the parts manufacturer and service provider within the auto brand, and has even released custom vehicles under the MOPAR name.

Although it’s the parts and service arm of the auto maker, the term has become a word for any Chrysler-made vehicle. So you might hear many Chrysler, Plymouth, Imperial, Ram, or Jeep vehicles referred to as MOPAR.

MOPAR is the customer care, service, and parts organization within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
