OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

The Risks of Aftermarket Parts

OEM parts are technically more expensive up front; however, over time, they come to be much less expensive than aftermarket parts. Aftermarket parts are less costly and for a good reason. Aftermarket parts do not come straight from the manufacturer, which means they were not made with your exact make and model in mind. Here are some of the risks that come with aftermarket parts:

  • Parts do not fit your make and model
  • Vehicle performance decreases
  • More frequent services, which means more money from your wallet
  • Parts damage the engine 

Parts are the foundation of any vehicle. If you have aftermarket parts, your vehicle will surely suffer. The best thing about our parts is that they are the best of the best, and the cherry on top is that at Downey Hyundai, they are easy to obtain! You have OEM Hyundai parts at your fingertips by conveniently ordering them directly from our website. If you are not much of a do it yourself type of person, then you can also rest assured that when our certified technicians are servicing your vehicle, they only use OEM parts.

Which are better, OEM Parts, or Aftermarket Parts?

In the automotive world, you hear "OEM parts" quite often. It sounds great, but what does it mean? The meaning of "OEM" is the original equipment manufacturer. This means that your parts are coming straight from the manufacturer's factory. Hyundai is one of the top automotive companies in the world, and the quality of parts can easily explain that. When you put your trust in Hyundai, we do not only deliver on the quality of service and amenities, and we also deliver on our parts.
