What Are the Benefits of Chevrolet OEM Parts?

If your Kansas City Chevrolet vehicle is in need of repairs or you need to replace a component, eventually the question of whether you should stick with Chevrolet OEM parts or if it’s okay to opt for aftermarket options may come up. OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts are made by the same manufacturer as your vehicle. In this case, that would be Chevrolet. There are lots of aftermarket Chevy parts available that may be priced cheaper than Chevrolet OEM parts, but are there added benefits when you spend a little extra for OEM? In addition to superior overall quality, there are several advantages of OEM Chevrolet parts. Learn more with the parts team at Hendrick Chevrolet Shawnee Mission!

What Does “Aftermarket” Mean?

How do you know if the Chevrolet parts you’re considering are aftermarket? These parts are marketed and manufactured by third-party brands that have no association with Chevrolet or General Motors (Chevy’s parent company). So if the part doesn’t specify that it’s Chevrolet or GM, you’ll know it’s aftermarket. While the type of aftermarket part may match your needs, these parts are mass-produced to fit as many makes and models as possible – they’re not meant strictly for Chevy models.

As we noted above, aftermarket Chevy parts are often priced lower than their OEM counterparts, but with a lower price often comes lower quality. Their fit tends to be mediocre at best, which is why auto manufacturers usually warn against them. It might seem like a steal you can’s pass up in the moment, but you could end up paying more in the near future if the aftermarket part fails prematurely or worse, causes damage to your vehicle.

Compare OEM Chevy Parts vs. Aftermarket

In addition to their superior overall quality, there are a few more ways in which Chevrolet OEM parts are favorable when compared to aftermarket options:

  • OEM Warranty Plan: When your OEM Chevrolet parts are purchased at and installed by a certified Chevrolet retailer like Hendrick Chevrolet Shawnee Mission, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with a Limited Parts Warranty! Aftermarket parts rarely offer comparable coverage and can actually jeopardize your original factory warranty if they damage your vehicle.
  • Easier to Find What You Need: There’s no need to drive yourself wild attempting to compare prices and quality when you shop OEM – you can rest assured you’re getting premium parts that meet strict manufacturer standards, for the best price possible, every time.

At Hendrick Chevrolet Shawnee Mission, we make it easy for Shawnee Mission shoppers to secure a great price on their Chevrolet OEM parts with a rotating selection of parts and service specials! Be sure to take a look at what’s available before starting your next project.
