What Are the Benefits of OEM Chevy Parts?

When the time comes to replace a part on your Chevy, you can either choose OEM parts or aftermarket parts. Though it is a slightly pricier option, we recommend choosing an OEM part as they come straight from the Chevy manufacturing plant. These parts are made from the same materials as the parts you’re replacing. Aftermarket parts are made by a third-party manufacturer and aren’t guaranteed to fit correctly. Many drivers are curious about the benefits of OEM Chevy parts and accessories. We at Volume Chevrolet can help. Check out our guide on OEM Chevy parts and be sure to contact our parts department with any questions.

What are Chevrolet OEM Parts?

OEM stands for “original equipment manufacturer,” which means these parts are crafted by a Chevy manufacturer using the same materials as the original parts form your model. These are also referred to as “genuine” Chevy parts. 

Aftermarket parts are built to fit multiple makes and models, meaning they won’t fit like they should on your specific vehicle. Using these could mean a more costly repair later down the road. When the time comes for new Chevy parts, order your OEM Chevy parts and accessories online at our Forsyth dealership. Some parts you’ll find that we offer include oil filters, premium engine oil, coolant, and even leather seat cleaning supplies.

Benefits of Genuine Chevy Parts

So, what are the benefits of OEM Chevy parts, and are they worth what they cost? In the end, whether you choose OEM or aftermarket parts is completely up to you. Though we do recommend keeping the following points in mind before purchasing new parts:

  • OEM parts fit your Chevy just right. OEM parts are made in Chevy factories to the exact same specs as original Chevy parts. If you choose an aftermarket part, the imperfect fit could cause damage to the surrounding parts.
  • Guaranteed quality. Choosing OEM parts means you’re guaranteed the highest quality and can avoid searching through pages of the same part to find the right fit.
  • Save time. You also won’t waste time trying to choose a part in an auto parts store. Between shopping and dealing with fit issues, getting an aftermarket part to work can eat up lots of time.
  • Save money. Even with aftermarket parts costing less upfront, in the long run, they can end up costing you more if not performing properly or if they cause damage to other parts because of an ill fit.
  • Avoid further damage. Aftermarket parts that don’t fit right can cause serious damage to surrounding parts, costing you more money in repairs.
  • Protect your warranty. Using an aftermarket part can lead to the voiding of your Chevy warranty.
