What Are the Benefits of OEM Chevy Parts?

Car Parts

Are you wondering what OEM parts are? OEM, or original equipment manufacturer, are parts made by the manufacturer. In this case, that’s Chevrolet. They are built using the same materials as the original parts that you’re replacing in your Chevrolet vehicle. Aftermarket parts can sometimes be cheaper than OEM Chevy parts and GM parts, but they are usually cheaper in multiple senses of the word.

Learn the benefits of Chevrolet parts over aftermarket and see why so many Bloomington and Normal drivers choose Leman's Chevrolet City.

What Are Aftermarket Parts?

Automotive manufacturers like Chevrolet do not produce aftermarket parts; a third party manufactures them. Aftermarket parts are built at a high volume and designed to fit the specifications of a variety of vehicles from different makes, not just Chevy vehicles.This is why sometimes they have a lower price point, but it also means you may have to cut and fit a part for it to be used in your vehicle — and your car, truck, or SUV wasn’t designed for that particular part. Because of this, automotive manufacturers do not recommend aftermarket parts.

Chevy OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket

Other than quality, here are a few more reasons OEM Chevy parts are the better option:

  • Warranty Coverage: OEM GM parts and OEM Chevy parts are covered with a Limited Parts Warranty that offers peace of mind and the General Motors seal of approval on your replacement part.
  • Easy Selection: Whether you need a replacement part or special performance parts, you don’t need to compare quality and price; just look up the model and year to find the part for your Chevy. You’ll get the right part at a reasonable price with no hassle.

OEM Chevy parts are made to last as long as the original part. We can’t say the same thing about aftermarket parts.
