Aftermarket vs. OEM Auto Parts - Comparison


Drivers have a budget, and it feels good to save money where you can. That's why you may find the low prices of aftermarket auto parts appealing at first. The experts at West Houston Volkswagen, however, do not recommend cutting corners with your car parts due to the additional risks they may cause. The upfront costs may be lower, however, generic auto parts that do not fit your specific model of a car could produce additional costs. When auto parts do not perfectly fit, the result can be a shorter lifespan or unexpected breakdowns. They also do not come with a warranty, which can leave you uncovered in a time of need. Finally, lower-quality car parts mean compromised value and performance for your beloved vehicle, meaning less for your trade-in or resale. Although you may find a close match with the wide array of unspecified aftermarket parts, you may experience more trouble than necessary in the long run.


When you look in the West Houston Volkswagen auto parts inventory in Houston, TX, you'll only find genuine, certified OEM parts designed to fit specific models of Volkswagen cars. They meet the unique performance needs of your exact vehicle. In addition, certified Volkswagen car parts offer a longer average lifespan, better protection with a guaranteed warranty, and more. While the upfront costs may be more, you're saving further down the road. We recommend investing in the promise of service and results with car parts that cover future premature costs that you can't expect from aftermarket parts. Protect your Volkswagen sedan or SUV with the help of the auto technicians. To learn more about your options, visit our auto parts center during open business hours, Monday-Saturday.
