Genuine OEM Car Parts vs Aftermarket Car Parts

Genuine OEM Car Parts vs Aftermarket Car Parts

When it comes to either carrying out routine maintenance or emergency repairs on your car, more and more people are making the decision to do the work themselves. With us still only just coming out of an economic downturn, many of us are still struggling to make ends meet each month and, as such, for the sake of a little bit of time to learn how to carry out the repair or replacement, the money saved in comparison to taking your car to a garage or main dealer can be huge.

Of course, the decision which must be made when carrying out your own repairs is whether you’re going to purchase genuine OEM parts or opt for the slightly cheaper aftermarket parts. To many car owners, the terms OEM and aftermarket mean absolutely nothing and, as such, we’ve teamed up with Honda car parts specialists, Cox Motor Parts to take a look at the differences in a little more depth.

What Are OEM Car Parts?

In short, OEM car parts are those supplied by the vehicle manufacturer themselves. If you’ve got a Honda car, OEM parts will be supplied by Honda whereas if you’ve got a Vauxhall, the OEM parts will be supplied by Vauxhall. Above all else, they’re the parts recommended by the manufacturer and almost always what was in the vehicle as new. As such, why would you even consider looking at other parts given that these are the only ones manufactured to the correct specification and those which guarantee to ensure your car performs as it was intended to as new?

The reason why many choose not to purchase genuine OEM parts is due to the fact that, in many instances, they’re slightly more expensive. Of course, this is to be expected with any ‘genuine’ parts, however many don’t understand the differences and therefore assume they can get the same parts cheaper elsewhere.

What Are Aftermarket Car Parts?

Aftermarket car parts are, in comparison, any parts which aren’t supplied by the vehicle manufacturer. They’re the ones you’ll usually see for sale in your local ‘motor mart’ and those which are branded to part manufacturers. Whilst, as you’d expect, meeting requirements from a safety perspective, you’ll often find that their lifespan is far shorter than with genuine parts and that your vehicle may see a reduction in performance in some areas.

Added to this is the fact that, unlike with genuine parts where you’ll generally only find one option for a part for a particular model, when it comes to aftermarket parts, you’ll often be faced with tens of different options. Unless you’re experienced in car repairs, you’re unlikely to know the difference and, as such, may end up buying the wrong part.

At the end of the day, genuine car parts are sold for a reason and they’re the only ones guaranteed not to impact the performance of your vehicle. To most of us, that’s the last thing we want and when you take into account the fact that you can often purchase genuine parts online for not much more than aftermarket parts locally, it all starts to make sense and the purchase of such parts becomes justified!
