What are the Advantages of OEM Chevy Parts?

Timing Belt

If you are looking for parts and accessories for your Chevrolet vehicle, you may be wondering about the difference between OEM Chevy parts and aftermarket alternatives. OEM stands for “Original Equipment Manufacturer,” meaning Chevy OEM parts come directly from Chevy, not a third party.

While aftermarket parts can sometimes be cheaper, you often get what you pay for in terms of quality. When you are shopping for reliable Chevrolet parts, the team at Sunset Chevrolet always recommends Chevrolet OEM parts.

The Basics of Aftermarket Parts

Unlike genuine Chevy parts, aftermarket parts are produced by a company other than Chevy. Aftermarket auto parts are built at a high volume, and these parts are not specifically designed for your particular make and model.

Aftermarket parts may be more affordable than OEM Chevy auto parts; however, they are often not a perfect fit. Ill-fitting parts could lead to damage down the road, and aftermarket parts typically do not last as long as Chevrolet OEM parts. Aftermarket parts may seem like a better deal upfront, but that is usually not the case over time.

Sunset Auto Family will almost always recommend OEM parts because they are a great example of Sunset’s core values as a dealership, emphasizing long-lasting value over short-term savings. No dealership can get a car cheaper from the manufacturer than any other dealership, so merely racing to the lowest price you see is likely to hurt you in the future. With exclusive offers like Oil Changes for Life and Warranty Protection for Life, the Sunset difference is about getting more without paying more!

Chevy OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

Why does Sunset Chevrolet always recommend genuine Chevrolet parts?

  • Hassle-Free Shopping: Shopping for auto parts is stress-free because you do not have to worry about comparing quality and price. There is often just one OEM option available for the part that has worn out, so you can find what you need quickly and get back on the roads of Puyallup as soon as possible.
  • Warranty Protection: OEM Chevy parts come with a warranty against defects. Most aftermarket parts are not protected by warranty. In fact, the use of aftermarket parts could void your vehicle warranty!
