What are OEM parts and why do they matter? Chevrolet OEM parts are Original Equipment Manufacturer parts that have been manufactured specifically for Chevrolet vehicles. They fit right every time and have undergone stringent tests to ensure they are of the highest quality for your safety. If you are ever in a collision, make sure the body shop that is repairing your car is using OEM parts because aftermarket parts may not fit properly or have the correct crumple zones for safety. Sometimes your insurance carrier will insist that a body shop repair a vehicle with aftermarket parts. This is a great question that you can ask when you are shopping for insurance companies and what kind of policies they offer.
OEM parts may cost more up front, but this is one of those cases where “you get what you pay for”. OEM parts are tried and true for your vehicle and come with a peace of mind that aftermarket parts just can’t provide.
