When it comes to anything automotive, the options seem to be endless and can become overwhelming. At Vicksburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we have found that choosing the right car parts has turned into another stressful experience for car owners. Over time, more and more third-party parts manufacturers have made their way into the market. Discover why original equipment manufacturer (OEM) MOPAR® parts remain superior for your RAM 1500.

OEM and Aftermarket Parts

OEM parts live up to the strict standards of the car manufacturer standards and are made specifically for your make and model. It can be tempting to opt for an aftermarket component versus an OEM part since these parts tend to be lower in price, more accessible at different stores, and have a “one size fits all” philosophy. This means, parts from third-party can fit into a number of car models. 

Aftermarket parts can save you money upfront but, because they are not built to fit the exact measurements of your vehicle, it is much more likely that will malfunction in the future. This could impact the safety of you and your passengers. Furthermore, they usually do not come with a warranty for any issues that may occur.
