Why You Should Choose OEM Parts
If you need a repair made to your Honda vehicle, you’ll likely hear our service technicians recommend Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. As a consumer, you have the choice between OEM parts and aftermarket parts. Both will get the job done, but here is why Capitol City Honda recommends buying OEM parts for your Honda when they’re available.
Quality: While both OEM and aftermarket parts will fix your vehicle, Honda OEM parts are designed specifically for your vehicle. Aftermarket parts are meant to work with multiple makes and models, while Honda parts are made to fit your vehicle specifically, meaning they’ll fit and work well with your Honda for years to come.
Design: We know one of the reasons you love your Honda is that it’s gorgeous. Choosing OEM parts maintains consistency in your design and will seamlessly blend in with the rest of the vehicle. While performance is always at the forefront when we’re working on a repair, we know it doesn’t hurt if your vehicle looks just as beautiful as it did before you needed the repair.
Warranty: Some OEM parts come with a warranty that you might not get with an aftermarket part. This added peace of mind is huge when you’re looking to save money and be sure that your vehicle is operating at its best. Talk to our technicians about warranties when you visit.
Safety: The overall safety of your car is measured based on the OEM parts that were in your car when you bought it. Switching to aftermarket parts may change some of the safety mechanisms in your car, depending on what part you’re replacing.
