Benefits of OEM Chevy Parts

An assortment of Automotive parts on a dark background

 

No matter what kind of Chevy vehicle you drive, it’s imperative that you only use Chevrolet OEM parts for all repairs both minor and major. OEM stands for “original equipment manufacturer”, which means that they come straight from the Chevy assembly line. This means that when you order OEM Chevrolet parts, they are designed for your specific Chevrolet vehicle. Learn more about how Chevy parts can improve your vehicle’s performance on the Quincy roads, how they compare to aftermarket parts, and how you can get your own parts for a great rate at our parts store at Shottenkirk Chevrolet. 

Aftermarket Parts

You won’t find aftermarket parts at the Chevy manufacturer plant or any manufacturing plant for that matter. That’s because aftermarket parts are made by a third party or a party outside of the Chevy brand. They’re built in large quantities and made to fit a variety of different kinds of makes and models. Because they’re made at higher volumes and made to fit a wider range of vehicles, they’re cheaper than OEM parts. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re better than OEM Chevy parts. 

There’s a reason that many technicians will tell you that you get what you pay for, and this is especially true when choosing cheap aftermarket parts over OEM Chevrolet parts. Aftermarket parts may cost less upfront, but they don’t meet OEM standards for quality and could end up costing you more in repairs later on down the line. 

How Do OEM Chevy Parts & Aftermarket Parts Compare?

When it comes to ensuring that your vehicle runs its best on the Hannibal roads, it’s crucial that you use the right parts. Here’s how Chevrolet OEM parts compare to aftermarket parts in the long run: 

  • OEM Chevrolet parts are easier to shop for since they’re designed for your specific Chevy vehicle. 
  • Chevrolet OEM parts come with warranty coverage and protection. 
  • OEM parts guarantee a tight and secure fit when installed in your vehicle. 
  • If you were to get into an accident while driving through Keokuk, and it was discovered that you had aftermarket parts with no warranty coverage, then you could be liable. 

Even though OEM parts cost a little bit more than aftermarket parts, you can’t put a price on the quality and assurance that only OEM parts offer. Order parts you need at Shottenkirk Chevrolet for an affordable price.
