What Are the Benefits of Chevrolet OEM Parts?

Car Parts

If you’ve ever been faced with buying Chevy parts and tempted to go the cheap route at the local car parts shop in New Braunfels, you probably wondered if you should purchase Chevrolet OEM parts. Yes, you should! Chevrolet OEM parts are designed to fit your used or new Chevy vehicle. There are many benefits to opting for genuine Chevy parts from the parts department at Northside Chevrolet. Find out more about what you get when you choose Chevrolet parts. 

What Are Aftermarket Parts? 

Aftermarket parts, which are sold at auto parts stores in Schertz and Boerne, are not made by Chevrolet. They are made by third-party manufacturers other than Chevy. Aftermarket parts are built at a high volume to work with as many vehicles as possible, not just Chevys. Because they’ve made at a high volume they might be priced less than genuine Chevy parts. However, it’s likely you’ll find yourself paying more down the road because aftermarket parts just don’t fit as well as Chevrolet OEM parts. This can lead to having to replace the part again far earlier than if you’d chosen a Chevrolet part. At worst, an ill-fitting aftermarket part can damage your vehicle. 

Chevy Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

While the fit is the most important reason to opt for Chevrolet parts, you might be wondering if there are more reasons to skip the aftermarket parts and only buy Chevy parts. Here are a few more reasons why Chevrolet OEM parts are the best choice for your Chevy: 

  • Less Overwhelming Selection: Auto parts stores have an astounding number of parts since they’re focused on selling to as many different makes and models as possible. It’s easy to lose a lot of time and energy in comparison-shopping aftermarket parts. When you shop for Chevy parts at a Chevrolet dealership, you don’t have to filter through nearly as many parts. Also, our certified technicians are here to help you. 
  • Warranty Coverage: OEM GM parts and Chevrolet OEM parts are covered with a Limited Parts Warranty. Using an aftermarket part could jeopardize your warranty coverage if it can be proven that the part caused damage to your vehicle. 

The bottom line: OEM Chevy parts are made to last as long as the original part you’re replacing. The same can’t be said for aftermarket parts.
