Where are my vehicle parts coming from?

When something goes wrong with our vehicles it is never a good situation and can become a time consuming problem. No one wants an unexpected costly expense, so naturaly you go to the corner auto parts store rather than the car dealership for your repair. Did the auto parts store tell you that they are most likely used an aftermarket part rather than an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) part? Our dealership would like to make you aware of the dangers with choosing aftermarket parts over parts from the OEM.

Aftermarket Parts:

  • The quality of aftermarket parts has no guarantee since they were not manufactured by the actual car company.
  •  There is too much of a selection with aftermarket parts and if your body shop chooses the wrong one, then your car may not run properly.
  •  There is a very small chance that aftermarket parts will fit and function properly compared to factory parts. Lower cost, but also most of the time lower quality.

 

Genuine OEM Parts:

  • OEM parts are built specifically to fit into your vehicle.
  • Dealerships will always have updated parts since they are normally the first to know when parts are being updated.
  • Parts will more than likely come with a warranty and it is usually a fairly long warranty period.
  • The price may be higher compared to aftermarket, but the quality is also higher and you are less likely to have another problem in the near future.

Our dealership has an extensive parts department with highly qualified parts specialists. The main focus of our parts department is to make sure your vehicle is running and in top notch condition for years to come. Don't hesitate to contact our knowledgeable parts team so we can provide you with the best deal on OEM parts.
