Benefits of Chevrolet OEM Parts

Chevy Parts
If you’re a Watertown driver and aren’t sure what OEM parts are or what OEM means, don’t worry! The parts department at Brookings Auto Mall is here to walk you through what OEM means and how OEM Chevy parts can help improve the overall lifespan and performance of your Chevy vehicle. Discover the benefits of Chevrolet OEM parts with Brookings Auto Mall.



What Are OEM Parts?

OEM stands for “original equipment manufacturer.” So, OEM Chevrolet parts are parts that come straight off of the assembly line of Chevrolet and are designed for your specific Chevrolet vehicle. OEM parts are a little more expensive than aftermarket parts, but the saying “you get what pay for” is especially true when it comes to getting OEM Chevy parts. Whether you drive a new Chevy Impala or a used Chevy Malibu, OEM parts are essential to maintaining your vehicle’s performance.

What Are Aftermarket Parts?

Aftermarket parts are different from Chevrolet OEM parts in the sense that they’re manufactured by a third party, and are designed to fit a variety of different vehicle makes and models. Because they’re produced at a higher volume, aftermarket parts are cheaper than OEM parts but aren’t recommended. Because they’re designed for several different vehicles, OEM parts may not fit your Chevy the way they might fit another vehicle and could end up causing more problems later on. For this reason, you should buy only OEM Chevrolet parts to ensure peak performance on the Brookings roads.

OEM vs. Aftermarket: Main Differences

Besides the difference in price, how exactly do OEM Chevy parts differ from aftermarket car parts? Here are some of the major differences you’ll see when you use Chevrolet OEM parts compared to aftermarket parts:

  • Easier to Select: Because OEM parts aren’t produced at such a high volume as aftermarket parts, you don’t have to worry about searching all over the Mitchell area to find what you need. You also don’t have to worry about comparing prices.
  • Warranty Coverage: OEM parts are covered with an extended warranty package. Aftermarket parts could strip away your warranty if your vehicle is damaged because of an aftermarket part.
  • Right Fit: OEM Chevy parts are designed to fit your specific Chevy vehicle, so you won’t have to worry about wasting time reordering parts. 

When it comes down to it, Chevrolet OEM parts are made to last as long as your vehicle, which can’t necessarily be said for aftermarket parts. Visit Brookings Auto Mall to search for and order parts you need from home.
