What Are the Benefits of OEM Chevy Parts?

If you’re currently a Chevrolet owner or have been researching new Chevrolet vehicles, you’ve probably come across the term “Chevrolet OEM parts.” What are OEM parts? OEM, “original equipment manufacturer” are parts made by the manufacturer, or, in this case, Chevrolet specifically. Compared to aftermarket parts, OEM Chevy parts and GM parts are more expensive but are completely worth the investment as they offer much more reliability.

What are Aftermarket Parts?

Manufacturers, such as Chevrolet, don’t build aftermarket parts. These auto parts are manufactured by a third party, or a company other than Chevrolet. Aftermarket parts are produced at a high volume and they’re designed to fit the specifications of a wide range of vehicles from different makes, not just Chevrolet vehicles. 

Even though aftermarket parts tend to be more affordable than OEM Chevrolet parts, their quality is usually lacking. Because of this, auto manufacturers do not recommend aftermarket parts. Ultimately, while aftermarket parts may save you money upfront, in the long run, they’ll result you in spending more out of pocket due to their poor quality and short lifespan. 

Difference Between Chevrolet OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts 

If you’re still wondering about the difference between Chevrolet OEM parts vs. aftermarket parts, here are a few more reasons why you should always opt for OEM Chevy parts:

  • More Curated Options: Whether you’re shopping for a replacement component or special performance parts, when you go with Chevrolet OEM parts, you’ll get what you need for a reasonable price, without having to compare quality and prices.
  • Warranty Coverage: OEM GM parts and OEM Chevy parts are covered with a Limited Parts Warranty. If you’re using an aftermarket part, and it results in vehicle damage, this part could put your warranty coverage in jeopardy. 

The bottom line: OEM Chevy parts are built to be as longstanding as the original auto part that you’re replacing. On the other hand, aftermarket parts are of poor quality and will end up costing you more in the long term.
