Each Subaru vehicle is designed to the highest standards to ensure reliable performance and capability when you are driving on the Kalkaska roads, so it's important to have the right Subaru OEM parts fitted whenever a replacement is required. For those OEM auto parts, Traverse City drivers can always trust the team here at Serra Subaru of Traverse City. To help you understand exactly why using them is so important, simply read on for a quick and easy overview.

Why Use OEM Subaru Parts?

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, which means these Subaru parts will have been made either by Subaru or by a company approved by Subaru. Unlike aftermarket parts, which can fit a wide range of vehicles, Subaru OEM parts will have been designed for your exact make and model.

Here's just a few reasons you should use them whenever a part needs to be replaced:

  • Reliability: Aftermarket parts tend to be cheaper since they don't need to be built to Subaru standards. Unfortunately, this also makes them more likely to fail on the Kingsley streets.
  • Fit: A part that has been made for your exact make and model is always going to fit better than one that hasn't. This reduces the likelihood of damage.
  • Warranty: In most cases, using an aftermarket part instead of an OEM part will invalidate your warranty coverage. Additionally, OEM parts generally come with warranty coverage of their own.
  • Convenience: When you go with OEM parts, there will always be one perfect part to meet your needs. With aftermarket parts, you'll need to choose the best option from a wider range.
