Genuine OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket






Kansas City drivers in need of parts replacement will have options. One trip to your corner parts store, and you’ll have dozens of off-brand replacement parts, commonly referred to as aftermarket parts. But if you’re in the market for new auto parts and accessories, you should stick to OEM Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or RAM parts — also known as genuine Mopar® parts.

Keep reading to learn about the hazard posed by aftermarket parts, and why you should always choose Mopar® OEM car parts instead. Then explore our Dodge OEM parts, Jeep OEM parts, Chrysler OEM parts, and RAM OEM parts specials.

Why Should You Avoid Aftermarket Parts?

There are a number of reasons why Blue Springs drivers should avoid aftermarket parts and choose OEM parts instead.

  • Resale Value: Unlike OEM car parts, aftermarket parts drop your vehicle’s resale value.
  • Durability: Aftermarket parts aren’t well regulated, so you can’t be sure you’re getting the level of durability that you’ll enjoy when you buy Dodge OEM parts.
  • Fit: In many cases, aftermarket parts won’t fit your vehicle, in which case, you’ll have to bring your vehicle to your mechanic so they can customize your car.

Mopar® Parts

You’ll find a full selection of Chrysler OEM parts at Lee’s Summit DCJR, complete with a number of different advantages:

  • Resale Value: When you use OEM Chrysler parts, your car’s resale value remains unaffected.
  • Durability: OEM RAM parts are designed to exacting FCA standards, meaning that they’re incredibly durable. You’ll be recomped for the marginally higher upfront costs associated with OEM car parts when your part lasts twice as long as an aftermarket.
  • Fit: OEM parts were the very parts your vehicle was built with. They fit perfectly. Gladstone drivers just need to plug them in and drive.
  • Warranty Coverage: OEM parts are backed by a 1-year warranty.
