What Are the Benefits of OEM Chevy Parts?

Chevy Service Department

When you need to replace a part on your Chevy vehicle, you can choose Chevrolet OEM parts or aftermarket parts. Chevrolet OEM, or “original equipment manufacturer” parts are exact replicas of your car’s original parts, manufactured by the automaker. Aftermarket parts are replacement parts not made by the original manufacturer. Compared to aftermarket parts, OEM Chevy parts are more expensive but offer greater reliability. Learn more about the benefits of Chevrolet parts with Cox Chevrolet!

What Are Aftermarket Parts?

Any third party manufacturer can produce and sell aftermarket parts. Unaffiliated with Chevy or GM, aftermarket parts are intended for use among a wide variety of auto makes and models. They’ll cost you less than genuine OEM Chevy parts, but you take the risk of an inexact fit. By contrast, OEM parts are a guaranteed exact fit for your make and model. Another point to keep in mind is that replacing certain parts with aftermarket parts can void your vehicle warranty, so always check your owner’s manual to find out which parts must be replaced with OEM Chevy parts.

Chevrolet OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

Besides fit and quality, there are more reasons to buy OEM Chevy parts through your local Palmetto-area Chevrolet dealership:

  • No research required — Whether you’re shopping to replace a worn part or to upgrade performance, OEM parts come at a set price. Researching the huge number of aftermarket manufacturers for quality and comparing aftermarket part prices is often time-consuming and confusing.
  • Easy ordering — At Cox Chevrolet, you can order OEM parts through our parts department. Online ordering means that replacing a Chevy part is hassle-free!
  • Warranty guarantee — All Chevrolet OEM parts are covered by a Limited Parts Warranty, giving you peace of mind when you take your newly repaired car out on Brandon roads. If you want to cut costs and use aftermarket parts, keep in mind that you risk jeopardizing your warranty coverage if the replacement part goes on to damage your vehicle.
