If you bring your Kia vehicle into a Eugene Kia service center for regular maintenance or repair, your vehicle will be fitted with genuine Kia OEM parts by a certified mechanic. Visit a chain or independent shop instead, and aftermarket parts will often be used to service your vehicle. So what is the difference for the average Springfield driver? Kiefer Kia is here to break down the advantages of using genuine Kia parts.

What are Kia OEM Parts?

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, and Kia refers to their OEM parts as Genuine Kia Parts. In the case of Genuine Kia Parts, this means that all parts are made specifically by Kia for Kia vehicles. Aftermarket parts, on the other hand, are made by a parts company and are often designed to be compatible with as many makes and/or models as possible.

This means aftermarket parts won’t deliver the same superior fit that genuine OEM parts will. In fact, many aftermarket parts cover such a wide range of makes and models that you may find yourself cutting and fitting it to your vehicle. If it’s a visible piece, it’s rare that the color will match, either — possibly turning heads for the wrong reasons around Cottage Grove.

Benefits of Kia OEM Parts

While aftermarket parts can be less expensive than OEM parts, they are also often cheaper in every sense of the word. The benefits of using Kia OEM parts far outweigh any cons:

  • Quality: Part of making aftermarket parts cheaper includes the use of inferior materials. This can lead aftermarket parts to fail and negate any initial savings that a driver may have gained.
  • Performance: Ford OEM parts have been designed specifically for your vehicle. This means they deliver the optimal fit and performance so that your vehicle runs at its best.
  • Selection: Because aftermarket parts are being made for every brand possible, there can be a huge and often confusing selection available if you’re trying to shop by yourself. A visit to a Kia parts department will ensure that you’re getting exactly what you need for your Ford repair or maintenance needs.
  • Parts Warranty: Any genuine Kia part is covered by a 12-month warranty, whether driving around Roseburg or across the country.
  • Vehicle Warranty: If you’re driving a new Kia that’s still under warranty, the use of aftermarket parts on your vehicle may void your warranty coverage.
