The Benefits of Using OEM Parts

Buick Rims

It’s important for Queens and Astoria area drivers to ensure that their new car, truck or SUV gets regular maintenance visits to our service department to make sure their ride stays in excellent running condition. During those visits, parts may be needed to make repairs and at that point, you have a choice to make. Do I use genuine OEM Buick parts/OEM GMC parts, or do I use cheaper aftermarket parts?

Genuine OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

There is an argument to be made for using aftermarket parts to repair your vehicle. They are a little cheaper, and in some cases might be more readily available. However, that’s where the benefits end because aftermarket parts can bring with them unforeseen issues such as:

  • Inferior grade parts and metal used in manufacturing
  • An irregular or poor fit to your vehicle
  • Reduced reliability
  • Built by different manufacturers
  • Reduced warranty in case of part failure

Using genuine OEM parts guarantees that your repairs will be completed with exactly the same parts that were used at the factory that built your Buick or GMC. Using OEM car parts ensures that:

  • The fit is perfect
  • Manufacturing quality of parts and metal is of a high standard
  • Parts are ordered on time and arrive quickly
  • OEM Parts and accessories are backed with factory warranties and support
  • Ordering is through the dealership

With OEM Buick parts and OEM GMC parts, Great Neck drivers have easy access to a massive inventory on hand here in our Parts Department at City Buick GMC. Our parts professionals will make sure that you have the correct parts that fit, and are delivered on time.

Benefits of OEM Accessories

Brooklyn Buick and GMC owners sometimes are not content with how their vehicle looks or performs and want to upgrade its style or performance. That’s where genuine OEM parts and accessories step in. OEM accessories are manufactured to fit your vehicle perfectly, and are priced reasonably to make your upgrade affordable. Some of the parts and accessories you might want to swap out for higher performance or a sleeker look are:

  • Windshield Wipers.
  • Door Mirrors.
  • Wheels.
  • Tailgate Trim.
  • Floor Mats.
  • Roof-Mounted Bike Racks.
