What are the Benefits of OEM Chevy Parts?

When repairing or maintaining your Chevrolet vehicle, you have likely come across both OEM and aftermarket parts while searching for the components your vehicle requires. Whether you’re fixing up your work truck for another year on the job in The Shoals or you’re eyeing some new accessories to make your Northern Alabama drives a bit more comfortable, you can go aftermarket or OEM. The benefits of OEM Chevy parts far outweigh the advantages of aftermarket parts. Aftermarket parts may sometimes be less expensive, but they’re often cheaper in every sense of the word.

What are Aftermarket Parts? 

Aftermarket parts are not produced by an automaker like Chevy; rather, they are manufactured by a third party. Aftermarket auto parts are produced to work in a wide range of makes and models, not just your Chevy vehicle. That’s right; aftermarket parts producers could make a door handle for a Dodge and expect you to use it on your Equinox. This can obviously become an issue for Florence drivers: it’s rare that vehicles from the same manufacturer can share parts and have a good fit.

There are two main reasons you might see a lower price on an aftermarket part: 

  • It’s designed to “fit” dozens of vehicles, and the parts maker makes their money on volume. You will often need to cut and fit it for it to match your vehicle just right.
  • It’s made from sub-par materials that aren’t up to the standards of every other part of your vehicle.
  • But for many aftermarket parts, both of these are true.

This is why experts in the automotive industry usually do not recommend the use of aftermarket parts. While aftermarket parts can seem like a great deal initially, they can become more costly in the long run because they don’t meet OEM quality standards and often have a shorter lifespan than genuine Chevrolet parts. In fact, an ill-fitting aftermarket part could damage your vehicle and lead to costly repairs down the road. 

Chevy OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

Looking for other reasons to choose genuine Chevy parts over competing aftermarket components? Here are just a few reasons to put Chevrolet OEM parts at the top of your list:

  • Easier Selection: Whether you’re shopping for a replacement part or special performance parts, you do not have to evaluate dozens of options for reliability and cost. There is typically just one OEM option for the component that you need. 
  • Warranty Coverage: Chevrolet OEM parts come with a warranty against defects. Most aftermarket parts do not come with warranty coverage. In fact, the use of some aftermarket parts could actually void your Chevy warranty. 

The bottom line: OEM Chevy parts are made to last as long as the original part you’re replacing. This is not the case for most of the aftermarket parts currently available.
