Why Should I Choose OEM Car Parts
April 27, 2017
When you take your vehicle in to be repaired, you may be presented with the choice of using manufacturer or aftermarket car parts for the installation. So why would you go with the more expensive manufacturer’s part? There are actually a lot of reasons you should choose OEM car parts, so we will go into detail on those reasons and explain what OEM parts are a little more in-depth.
What is an OEM Part?
Also known as manufacturer’s parts, OEM parts stand for “original equipment manufacturer” parts. OEM parts are the same parts installed on your vehicle when it rolled off the assembly line. This means these parts are the perfect fit for any repair you need, but they will cost you a little more. When you go to a dealership, these are the parts they will use to complete the repair. Now, lets talk about why you should use OEM parts on your vehicle repairs.
Too Many Choices with Aftermarket
The truth is, for many people, multiple options really aren’t helpful when you’re not even sure what the part is for. When you go to pick out an aftermarket part to repair your vehicle with, you will probably have a wide variety of options which vary greatly in overall quality and price. With manufacturer parts, there is going to be only one part for your vehicle which makes the decision REALLY easy, and you know the part is going to be of the highest quality.
OEM Parts are the Highest Quality
When you use a manufacturer’s part to repair your vehicle, you are using the parts originally intended for your vehicle. This means that it will function exactly like it was supposed to, which helps the rest of your vehicle operate at peak performance. Car’s are much more complicated these days, and if one little part is off, even by the tiniest amount, it can create a ripple effect down the line in your vehicle leading to larger issues.
Sometimes Aftermarket isn’t Bad
We don’t want you to think that purchasing and using aftermarket parts is the worst decision you can make. At the end of the day, repairing a broken part to your vehicle is the only option you have, so if you only have aftermarket parts available then you should use them. Additionally, there are some repairs where aftermarket parts will work just fine—if not better—but we strongly recommend you leave this decision up to your trusted Davidsonville, MD mechanic.
