Which Auto Parts to Use for Repairs

Pages: 1 2

There are many options to choose from when it comes to a car that doesn’t work anymore: it can be junked, a new car can be purchased, the car can be fixed, a rental car can be used for the time being, or a family member’s can can also be used for the time being. There are a plethora of ideas that can be chosen from if one has a failing car, though, the best thing to do would just repair the car that doesn’t work any longer. This may also be harder than it looks, though, because of the fact that parts are expensive nowadays, labor is expensive when getting repairs done at an repair shop, and there are many choices to make as to what kind of repairs need to be made anyway.

One issue that many deal with when fixing their car by themselves or having an repair shop fix their car is what type of parts they’ll be using. There are basically two types of parts that can be used to fix a car, and they both will be explained, as well as the pros and cons of using each type of part.

The first type of part that comes to mind when repairing one’s car is OEM parts . The term "OEM" stands for "original equipment manufacturer," and this means that OEM parts come directly from the company that made the car in the first place. In other words, if a person’s Chevrolet Cavalier were to fail because of the alternator or starter then an OEM alternator or starter could be purchased in to repair the car. The benefit of buying original equipment manufacturer parts is the fact that there will generally be a warranty on the part that is bought. In addition, one is usually guaranteed that the part will work and fit the car on the first try.

A downside to ordering OEM parts is the fact that they are generally much more expensive that other types of parts . Whereas other parts may be around $50, the same parts that are bought from the OEM may be as much as $150. The price makes all the difference, too, when repairing your car, so it may not necessarily behoove you to purchase OEM parts .

On the other hand, the other type of parts that can be purchased when repairing a car is after-market parts , or parts that are made for the same automobile by third-parties. These automobile parts are generally much easier to run into, and more repair shops and retail stores generally carry after-market parts as opposed to OEM parts . That is one of the big advantages to buying those types of parts
