When you make the decision to purchase a new car, you are committing to preserving your investment with regular maintenance, necessary repairs, and parts replacement. At Van Horn Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM FIAT of Plymouth, we only use original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts to ensure top quality. Find out the importance of these particular parts in Dodge vehicles.
What Are OEM Parts?
Regardless of which make or model you own, there will come a time when you need to replace certain parts. Frequently replaced parts include filters, brake pads, lights, batteries, and windshield wipers. When it’s time to swap out these components, drivers have the option of OEM parts or aftermarket components. Aftermarket parts are made by third-party companies, rather than brand, and are designed to fit a variety of models. They’re usually lower quality and don’t fit your vehicle as well.
Importance of OEM Parts
The major difference between the two is that OEM parts are designed to fit your exact model and are made by the manufacturer. Furthermore, there is typically an excellent warranty on these parts for additional reliability. Aftermarket parts can seem like a good option, because they’re usually a little more affordable. We highly advise against using these parts. They’re not a perfect or secure fit, and are generally less reliable.
The parts department at our Chrysler dealership has an inventory fully-stocked with both parts and accessories, from fresh tires to new windshield wipers. To order the perfect match for your model, give us a call or order the part online. Once it comes in, our certified team will install it for you at your earliest convenience. Don’t delay on necessary repairs.
If you happen to be in the market for a new or pre-owned model, you are also welcome to explore our inventories. It has been exciting to welcome the latest models, such as the 2020 Jeep Cherokee.
