When you need to get a part replaced in your car, you may have more options than you realize. Depending on where you get your car repaired, the part could be replaced with either Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts or aftermarket parts.

We’ll talk about the pros and cons of each type.
OEM Parts at Nissan of Canton
When you bring your Nissan in for service here at Nissan of Canton, we will use original Nissan parts (Original Equipment Manufacturer, or OEM). These parts are produced by Nissan and match the parts that originally came with your car.

There are numerous advantages to OEM parts. These include the fact that the parts come with a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty. This can give you added confidence that if the part should fail within that time, you will not have to pay to get it repaired again.

Another benefit to OEM parts is that they are designed to work and perform exactly like the original, which means there is a high level of quality assurance.

Finally, OEM parts are easier to choose because there is only one option. You don’t have to deal with the stress of deciding which aftermarket brand will be most reliable for your vehicle.

The only possible downside when purchasing OEM parts is that they might be more expensive than aftermarket parts. However, with the included warranty and added peace of mind, it may be worth the extra cost.
Aftermarket Parts for Your Vehicle
Aftermarket parts are reverse manufactured to match OEM parts, and come from a variety of different sources.

There are some benefits to aftermarket parts. These parts are usually less expensive than OEM parts, and sometimes the part can actually be better. This is particularly true for performance parts, since most vehicles aren’t originally sold with performance modifications. Buyers can also find aftermarket parts nearly anywhere, from gas stations to auto parts stores to big box stores.

However, with aftermarket parts the selection can sometimes be overwhelming, and the quality can vary greatly from brand to brand. In addition, these parts may not come with a warranty.
