What Are the Benefits of OEM Chevy Parts?

First things first: What does OEM stand for? OEM means “Original Equipment Manufacturer” and, in our case, it signals that a vehicle part was manufactured by Chevrolet. Whether it’s a simple cabin air filter or equipment for the exhaust system, most Chicago drivers consider OEM auto parts to be superior to aftermarket options due to the fact that they’re built using the same high-quality, factory-made materials as the component you’re replacing. Learn more about the merits of choosing genuine Chevrolet parts, below!

What Are Aftermarket Parts?

While Chevrolet parts are produced by Chevrolet for Chevrolet models, aftermarket parts are manufactured by a third party not associated with Chevy. Aftermarket auto parts are produced at high volumes, and they’re designed to fit many models across many makes. More often than not, this will lead to an improper fit, and you may even find yourself cutting and modifying parts in order to make them work. It is for this reason that auto manufacturers simply don’t recommend aftermarket parts. When you compare the prices of Chevrolet OEM parts vs. aftermarket options, you may find that the aftermarket parts are cheaper. But trust us when we say they’re cheaper in every sense of the word.

Chevy OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket

Aside from the difference in quality, there are a couple of other reasons OEM Chevrolet parts are the superior option:

  • Straightforward Selection: Whether you need to replace an essential Chevy component or you want to enhance its performance on Carol Stream roads, shopping OEM parts eliminates the need to compare quality and price. You can rest assured you’re getting the exact part you need for a fair price.
  • Warranty Coverage: OEM Chevy parts are covered by a Limited Parts Warranty, which you’re not likely to get with aftermarket options. What’s more, repairing or modifying your vehicle with aftermarket parts could jeopardize what is left of your vehicle’s original warranty.

What’s the bottom line? If you want the parts you buy to last just as long as the part you’re replacing, OEM Chevy parts are the smartest option.
