What does MOPAR mean?

Cline Collision Center is MOPAR auto body shop. But what does MOPAR stand for? And what does it mean to be a MOPAR body shop?

MOPAR is the customer care, service, and parts organization within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. This automaker makes several brands you’re familiar with:  Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Ram Trucks, and more. The name MOPAR comes from combing the letters in “MOtor” and “PARts” to create MOPAR. MOPAR produces all the parts for FAC vehicles. Although this is the organization with the automaker’s corporation, the term is used by car owners to refer to all vehicles produced by Fiat Chrysler Automobile. For example, in popular culture the word MOPAR has come to refer to Dodges, Chryslers, Plymouths, Imperials, etc.

When an auto body shop is specially a MOPAR body shop, it means they only use original equipment manufacturer parts for all FAC repairs. Just as Cline Collision Center is certified through Ford, Hyundai, Infiniti, Nissan, Kia, and Honda as an approved body shop that only uses OEM parts, the same goes for Fiat Chrysler vehicles. The label MOPAR body shop is the same as stating we are a FCA certified collision repair facility. It means the automaker has acknowledged our work meets the stringent standards set by Fiat Chrysler for auto body repairs, including using MOPAR-produced body parts, factory approved procedures, and high quality equipment and tools for the job.


Why use MOPAR parts?

It’s crucial to use MOPAR parts for auto body repairs on your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or other FCA vehicle. Why is it so important? MOPAR specially manufactures these parts for your vehicle. Every part is engineered and fitted for the exact car. Aftermarket or alternative parts might be cheaper, but they are not a guaranteed fit, are often inferior quality, and may alter the appearance and/or structural integrity of your vehicle. By using MOPAR parts and trusting a MOPAR auto body facility, you can ensure your vehicle is restored to factory condition. That’s exactly what Cline Collision Center provides.
