What is Original Parts Replacement?
What if OEM parts aren't available?There are some cases when OEM parts aren't available because they're not built anymore, not distributed, or for other reasons. In this case, estimates may include a new non-OEM part or reconditioned OEM part.
What's the difference between OEM and aftermarket parts?The difference between OEM and aftermarket parts is who makes them.
- Original Equipment Manufacturer: These parts are designed and built by the original company that built the vehicle and can be more expensive.
- Aftermarket parts: These parts are built by other companies and can be less expensive.
Now, price isn't everything. There are plenty of companies that make aftermarket parts that are of similar quality.
