The Difference Between OEM vs. Aftermarket Parts

Auto parts

In order to keep your Acura in the best condition whether you’re on Katy or Spring roads, you may need to upgrade your vehicle with new parts every once in a while. And, if you’re in the market for new auto parts, you may be wondering what the difference is between OEM and aftermarket parts, and more importantly, which is the better fit for your car in the long run. Join John Eagle Acura as we compare OEM vs. aftermarket parts today!


Comparing OEM Parts and Aftermarket Parts

OEM or original equipment manufacturer parts are vehicle components that come directly from your vehicle’s brand. These are designed to perfectly fit your vehicle and work alongside its other components seamlessly. Aftermarket parts, on the other hand, come from outside manufacturers and can lessen the performance of your vehicle and may not be a direct fit. Since Acura OEM parts come right from the manufacturer, they may be a bit higher in price, but aftermarket auto parts and genuine parts differ in many ways aside from cost. Here are some additional ways customers can distinguish between the two options: 

  • Value: Like we mentioned above, while aftermarket parts can save you money initially, they have a higher possibility of failure than OEM parts and can malfunction more easily. OEM parts save you money in the long run because of this.
  • Expertise: When you buy an OEM part at our John Eagle Acura service center, your part can be installed by certified brand technicians who are specialized in working on Acura vehicles. This means you can trust that your replacement part is perfectly fitted for your vehicle.
  • Specialized: You trust the automaker that built the vehicle you own, right? Well, then you should trust that same automaker’s replacement parts, too! OEM parts are specifically made for your vehicle and are suited to work better and longer than aftermarket versions.
  • Quality: While aftermarket parts are typically made with cheaper materials and are designed to fit a number of different vehicles, OEM parts are made with higher-quality materials and are designed specifically for your vehicle.
  • Warranty: OEM parts also come with a warranty that guarantees they will function properly, and in the case that anything malfunctions, you are covered! You typically don’t get a warranty with aftermarket parts.
