Aftermarket Parts vs. Mazda OEM Parts

oem vs aftermarket parts

Whether you have a new or used Mazda model, when you’re vehicle needs repairs, you want the best parts and services available to get the job done right so you can get back on Hudson streets in no time. When in need of new parts, it’s also helpful to know the difference between OEM parts vs. aftermarket parts:

  • OEM parts (short for original equipment manufacturer parts) are made by and for your vehicle’s brand.
  • Aftermarket parts are generic auto parts, not made by the original manufacturer of your vehicle.

Learn more about the pros and cons of OEM vs. aftermarket parts at Tulley Mazda, then browse our inventory of Mazda parts online to find the quality parts and accessories you need.


Aftermarket Parts

If you tend to take your vehicle to the corner auto shop for repairs instead of a brand-certified dealership, you may be getting Mazda aftermarket parts as replacements. While it’s beneficial for general repair shops and do-it-yourselfers to use aftermarket parts, it may not be beneficial for your model in the long run. A few reasons general auto shops might choose aftermarket parts::

  • Aftermarket parts can cost less than OEM parts and accessories.
  • There is a large selection of aftermarket parts online, so if one company is out of stock you can pick a different company to order your parts from.

OEM Parts

The certified technicians at a brand-certified dealership service center will use discount Mazda parts from the original equipment manufacturer to ensure a longer-lasting fix than if an aftermarket part was used. Though they cost a bit more, these parts and accessories are beneficial for the following reasons:

  • The parts are designed to fit your vehicle perfectly, so they won’t come off or become misaligned.
  • The parts are made with high quality standards, with the accountability of a well-known brand reputation to maintain.
  • You don’t have to spend hours combing through a huge selection of parts and reading reviews to make sure you are picking a good company with the right part.
  • Many replacement parts are covered by your vehicle’s warranty for lower costs and better peace of mind.
  • You can save money on your next round of repairs with rotating parts specials and service coupons when you get OEM repairs at an authorized service center.
