What Are OEM Parts and Why Are They Better?

Buying a pre-owned car, truck or SUV can make a lot of sense for you financially. You still get a high-quality vehicle with the features you want, but save money compared to buying a new car. As with any vehicle – new or pre-owned – regular maintenance is necessary. Eventually, your vehicle’s components will need to be replaced. When that happens, it’s time for you to purchase quality OEM parts. At Universal Used Car Superstore, serving Orlando and Oviedo, FL, our trained technicians can explain exactly what OEM parts are and why they make a difference in the life of your vehicle.

 What are OEM Parts?

OEM is short for “original equipment manufacturer”, which means the parts are completely identical as the ones installed in the factory. Whether you buy a pre-owned or Universal Certified Hyundai, Nissan, Toyota or Ford, the service department at Universal Used Car Superstore recommends using OEM parts that were designed for your specific model, trim, and year, because you know they’ll work with your vehicle perfectly.

Advantages of OEM Parts?

Of course, you can consider using aftermarket parts for your used Chevy or Dodge car, SUV or truck, but they may not offer the same quality and dependability. OEM parts represent your best option to provide optimal performance for your vehicle.

Even if you find aftermarket parts at a cheaper price, you could end up paying more for them in the end. Why? OEM parts come with a warranty so you’re covered if they ever need to be replaced. Aftermarket parts usually don’t have a warranty, so if anything goes wrong, you could get stuck paying for all of those repairs. Plus, they tend to be less reliable than OEM components, and may break and cause even more damage to your vehicle.
