What are the Benefits of OEM Parts vs Aftermarket Parts?

OEM Parts Give Peace of Mind

One of the most important reasons to go with original equipment manufacturer parts is that they come with a level of guaranteed quality that simply doesn't exist with aftermarket parts. OEM Subaru parts have been designed, tested and proven in the real world over years and, in some cases, decades. These parts have undergone careful tracking and quality control processes carried out by the manufacturer and its contractors, not just at the point of manufacturing but throughout the lifecycle of the parts themselves. This means that some of the older designs in parts, like fuel injectors, brake pads and similar components, may represent designs that have been tested over literally billions of miles of driving. In the end, the designs that last are the ones that have been chosen.

OEM Brakes and Parts

Unfortunately, aftermarket manufacturers often skimp on materials and critical design aspects in order to lower the cost of the parts. This is most insidious in the use of similar-looking but much lower quality materials, which can often lead to the early demise of those parts.

The only way to ensure that you're getting quality is to go with certified Subaru OEM parts.

Designed For Your Subaru

Easy Brake Installations

One of the less serious but more frustrating reasons to steer clear of aftermarket parts, especially those that you may be ordering cheaply from the internet, is that they frequently fit poorly or not at all. This is primarily due to the fact that aftermarket part makers try to design their parts to fit as many vehicle models as possible. In contrast, OEM parts always fit properly because they are designed for one model. Subaru technicians agree that OEM parts are easier to work with because they were made for your car.
