5 advantages of genuine, OEM-approved Mopar parts

When you’re maintaining or adding to your vehicle it’s always a wise choice to go with OEM-approved parts, since the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts are designed with your vehicle in mind. There are five major reasons, in no particular order, as to why your best bet is going with the OEM’s suggested parts:

  • Functionality
  • Rigorously tested
  • Quality and durability
  • Warranty
  • Parts specials

1. Functionality

With Mopar parts, you can trust that you’re buying a part designed to fit perfectly with your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram vehicle. These parts were designed to work with a specific model in mind, based on your vehicle’s factory specifications, and are built to function perfectly within your vehicle.

2. Rigorously tested

Another benefit to building the parts to your vehicle’s exact specifications, is that they can be tested with your vehicle. Mopar parts aren’t just tested, they’re tested rigorously, ensuring that they meet the same strict quality standards applied to your vehicle.

3. Quality & durability

Because they’re strictly tested with your vehicle in mind, you can rest assured that these parts offer both quality and durability. This means if you have to swap out some parts, you can trust that the new parts will work on your vehicle for a long time.

4. Warranty

All of our genuine, OEM-certified Mopar parts come backed with a warranty, so if you have any issues with the parts themselves the manufacturer will replace them for you free of charge. Incredible durability and a solid warranty make for a smart choice when it comes to your vehicle.

5. Parts specials

Finally, because these parts are made by the same manufacturer that produced your vehicle—in this case, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram—you’ll be privy to a huge variety of regularly rotated specials. Simply check out our Parts Specials page to learn more about what’s available at this point in time for your vehicle.

4 disadvantages of aftermarket parts

On the other side of the parts debate, there are aftermarket parts. This refers to any parts or accessories made by a third party, not certified by the manufacturer, that will “fit” your vehicle. While aftermarket parts can sometimes be cheaper than choosing an OEM-certified part, there are four main reasons why choosing aftermarket parts isn’t your best bet:

  • Not unique to your vehicle
  • Mass produced
  • Cheaply made
  • No warranty

1. Not unique to your vehicle

This is the biggest issue with aftermarket parts, and an easy red flag to spot. While our Mopar parts are designed with your specific vehicle in mind, aftermarket parts are designed to fit a variety of vehicles from a variety of manufacturers. This means these parts might fit, but won’t provide the same performance benefits—and can even cause problems—for your vehicle.

2. Mass produced

With third party companies seeking to maximize profits, their parts are often mass produced. This can lead to poor quality control, and even poor performance. They don’t offer the same quality or durability as an OEM-approved part.

3. Cheaply made

Not only are these parts mass produced, but they’re often cheaply made too. By acting as a catch-all part for a number of makes and models, there’s no guarantee that aftermarket parts will meet the same strict standards demanded of our Mopar parts.

4. No warranty

Finally, many of these parts don’t come with a warranty, meaning if they break or aren’t performing to your expectations there isn’t much you can do about it. Worse yet, purchasing inexpensive aftermarket parts can sometimes even result in voiding your vehicle’s manufacturer warranty.
