April 1, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Magneti Marelli Offered by Mopar is adding to its lineup of repair and maintenance parts, with even more high quality and affordable products available to assist in servicing both competitive make and FCA US LLC vehicles. The expansion includes Magneti Marelli Offered by Mopar radiators, condensers and wiper blades for FCA US vehicles, with brake pads and rotors soon to follow.

First introduced in 2011 as a comprehensive line of repair and maintenance parts for vehicles, Magneti Marelli Offered by Mopar now encompasses more than 3,000 part numbers. These products are available for sale to consumers and independent repair facilities via FCA US dealerships.

“We’re excited to extend the reach of Magneti Marelli Offered by Mopar with even more high quality, affordable parts for both competitive make and FCA US vehicles,” said Ross McGinnis, Vice President, Parts Sales and Field Operations, Mopar. “The additions reinforce the fact that FCA US dealerships are a one-stop shop, no matter the make or model.”

The offerings are the latest in a continuing expansion for the product line. Last year, for brake rotors and drums alone, Magneti Marelli Offered by Mopar added nearly 400 new part numbers for competitive makes. New oil filters were also added to the lineup earlier this year.

“This is a natural progression of the expanding relationship between Magneti Marelli Aftermarket and Mopar,” said Antonio Recinella, Chief Executive Officer, Magneti Marelli Aftermarket. “Magneti Marelli has been providing high quality products since 1919, and we look forward to assisting owners and independent repair facilities in servicing almost all high-profile brands.”
