OEM VS Aftermarket PArts

by Own world on October 12, 2021

Difference Between OEM and Aftermarket Parts

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, which means the parts are made by the same company that makes the vehicle. Meanwhile, aftermarket parts are produced by a different parts company and are often designed to be compatible with as many makes and/or models as possible. Due to these design differences, aftermarket parts won’t always provide the same superior fit of OEM parts.

OEM vs. Aftermarket Parts

Aftermarket parts may cost less initially, but the cons of using aftermarket parts far outway any initial savings. With genuine OEM parts, Norwalk drivers are getting:

  • Quality: One of the reasons aftermarket parts can be cheaper is they aren’t always made of the same high-quality materials as OEM parts. These inferior materials can lead aftermarket parts to fail and negate any initial savings that a driver may have experienced.
  • Performance: OEM parts have been designed specifically for your make and model. This allows them to deliver the optimal fit and performance so that your vehicle runs at its best.
  • Selection: With so many aftermarket parts flooding the market, there can be a huge and often confusing selection available if you are trying to shop by yourself. Buying from Aron Marketing will ensure that you are getting exactly what you need for your Ford repair or maintenance needs.
