Top Three Advantages of Buying OEM Parts
Chances are, you’ll need to replace a part on your vehicle after an accident in Stoughton, Brockton or Randolph. Deciding between OEM parts and aftermarket parts can be tough, especially with so many factors to take into consideration.
Collision 24 recommends OEM parts, and we explain why in our post below. But first, we’ll go over the definition of OEM parts.
What are OEM Parts?
OEM stands for “original equipment manufacturer”. These parts come directly from the automaker that assembled your vehicle (or their equipment supplier) and are identical to the components you are replacing. OEM parts are brand new, last long and come with quality materials. Choosing one takes the guesswork out of replacing a piece on your car.
Aftermarket parts, comparatively, come from a third-party source and are designed to serve a similar function to the original piece. However, they could damage your vehicle if they don’t fit correctly or if they’re incompatible and might not be as reliable as some drivers would like.
Benefits of Choosing OEM Parts Over Aftermarket
Choosing original equipment manufacturer parts over aftermarket parts reaps several benefits and ensures your vehicle performs the way your automaker intended. Investing in an OEM part over an aftermarket part helps drivers in many ways and keeps your car, truck or SUV running at an optimal level.
Here are three reasons why you should always choose OEM parts when replacing something on your car.
1. You’re Guaranteed Quality
An OEM part matches the component you’re replacing perfectly. That means it was designed, constructed and tested according to the manufacturer’s standard. Guaranteed to be compatible with factory specs and your vehicle, choosing OEM means choosing quality every time.
2. OEM Parts Last Longer
OEM parts are designed to last long. Their quality materials, designs and construction ensure an optimal performance and will keep your vehicle performing at its best.
3. Most OEM Parts Come With a Warranty
Many OEM parts are backed by a one-year manufacturer’s warranty. Each manufacturer warranty is different. Nevertheless, if you receive a faulty or defective part, your manufacturer will replace it quickly.
