Why Choose Genuine OEM Parts for Your Next Car Repair?
We all like to save money, but when it comes to maintaining your new Audi, Volkswagen, Honda or Hyundai from Ken Vance of Eau Claire it’s important to understand your replacement options. There are hundreds of low-cost aftermarket parts out there, but is cost the only important factor?
Let’s start by defining OEM. OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer.
This term is used when one company makes a part that is used in another company’s end product, like original Hyundai parts for your new Hyundai Accent, Tucson, Elantra, or Santa Fe. Let’s face it, you want to protect your new car and we’re here to help you.
Here are some reasons to consider genuine OEM parts next time you need a repair:
Quality – The OEM part replacement is essentially the same as the one you’re replacing, providing you with quality, assurance and peace of mind.
Easy Selection – Selecting a replacement part can be confusing and timely. Choosing an OEM part reduces the amount of time spent comparing options, prices, and compatibility concerns you may have.
Increased Trade-In Value – If you lease or plan to sell your vehicle in the future, aftermarket replacement parts may decrease your car’s value. Maintain your investment with genuine OEM parts.
Convenient Ordering – Needing a vehicle fix can be stressful, we make ordering your replacement part simple and convenient. You can choose to place an order online, over the phone, or at the dealership. Whichever option you chose, we are here to help.
Warranty Protection – Not all, but some OEM parts may come with a manufacturer’s warranty. This warranty protection can help offset the slightly high cost associated with genuine OEM parts. Make sure to ask your Parts Specialist about warranty protections.
What is the alternative?
The alternative to purchasing genuine OEM car parts is purchasing aftermarket replacement parts. Aftermarket replacement parts are not produced by the original manufacturer. There are hundreds of companies that manufacture or sell aftermarket parts, making sorting through your options timely and potentially overwhelming. Although typically lower in cost and more available at convenient stores, these aftermarket parts may not be fully compatible with your car, so it’s recommended to contact your Parts Specialist prior to your purchase.
