What Are the Benefits of Chevy OEM Parts?

Auto Parts Piled Up

You may be wondering, “What are OEM parts?” OEM, or “original equipment manufacturer” parts are made by the manufacturer—or, in this case, Chevrolet. These auto parts are built the same as the genuine Chevy parts your model was made with to provide a perfect fit. Compared to aftermarket parts, OEM Chevy parts and GM parts tend to be more expensive, but offer greater reliability. When the time comes for a replacement part, choose a genuine OEM Chevy part. Learn more about aftermarket and OEM parts then make your decision on which you want to use to repair your model.

What Are Aftermarket Parts?

Car manufacturers like Chevrolet don’t produce aftermarket parts. Aftermarket parts are manufactured by a third party and made at high volume, designed to fit a wide range of makes and models. This means they’re less likely to fit correctly, which can result in them needing replaced sooner. While more affordable than OEM Chevy auto parts, they aren’t recommended when making repairs to your vehicle.

Chevy OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket

Quality aside, there are other reasons to choose OEM Chevrolet parts over aftermarket parts. Here are just a few more reasons:

  • Less Overwhelming Selection: Whether you’re shopping for a replacement part or special performance parts, you won’t have to worry about comparing quality and price. You’ll get the appropriate part at a reasonable price.
  • Warranty Coverage: OEM GM parts and OEM Chevy parts are covered with a Limited Parts Warranty. Using an aftermarket part could jeopardize your warranty coverage if it can be proven that the part caused damage to your vehicle.

Bottomline: OEM Chevy parts are made to last as long as the original part you’re replacing. The same can’t be said for aftermarket parts.
