What's the Difference Between OEM Parts and Aftermarket Parts?

Chevrolet OEM and aftermarket parts answers

OEM parts for your Chevrolet have been tested and approved by the factory, ensuring that they live up to the same high quality that Chevrolet demands of all its vehicles' components. Aftermarket parts, on the other hand, may have not been through the same tests and don't have the same guarantee of quality. That's not to say that all aftermarket parts are necessarily bad--but the absence of factory approval means that you never can be sure.

What Else Should I Know About OEM and Aftermarket Parts?

Aftermarket parts do have one seeming advantage: they're often cheaper than the OEM parts. However, the saying "you get what you pay for" applies here. You might save a few bucks on the front end by choosing an aftermarket part; however, you'll often end up losing money in the long run. Since aftermarket parts aren't guaranteed to have the same quality as OEM parts, they may wear out much faster. What's more, choosing aftermarket for important parts like brake pads might make your drive less safe.
