Deciding Between Aftermarket, OEM, and Genuine Auto Parts - Articles Surfing

Aftermarket, OEM, or genuine auto parts... you're confused about what to choose. If that's you, read the following.

Cheaper doesn*t always mean inferior. Such is the case with aftermarket and OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) car parts. While they are often up to 70% cheaper than genuine parts, they can be far superior in quality.

Like many car owners and car parts buyers out there, I must say that I once thought that the genuine parts sold by my local automotive dealer were better. Well surprisingly, this is far removed from the truth.

Do you think that car makers make their own parts? They certainly don*t. They would probably like you to think so but this isn*t the case.

OEM parts are made by the same manufacturer as the genuine part you would receive from your local dealer. In other words, it's really the same part. The only difference is the logo on the box.

Here's what happens. Car makers use outside independent companies to help them design their parts. But after a certain time frame the actual manufacturers of these parts are allowed to sell them to other wholesale distributors for resale. This time they come with the manufacturer's logo and not that of the car maker. So essentially, the identical part is now referred to as an OEM part.

How about aftermarket parts? Are they inferior to genuine parts? ...

Although aftermarket car parts are not made by the original manufacturer, they perform as well as the original. In many cases, the companies find a way of improving these parts so that the customer gets a part that is of superior quality.

There is no need for concern. Aftermarket car parts are produced with the same machinery and materials as OEM and genuine parts. While the parts may have a few minor differences in look and feel, they basically do the same job. The companies who manufacture these aftermarket auto parts are credible. They legitimately buy the rights to manufacture those parts.

You can order aftermarket and OEM car parts online today. It's easy. It's a great way to save money. Furthermore, you can have peace of mind, knowing that you*re not compromising quality.
