What are OEM parts?

What are OEM parts? | Precision AutomotiveOne request I get as the owner of Poway’s Precision Automotive is to install “OEM” parts. There is often some confusion about what an “OEM” part is and what it really means for your vehicle. If you are looking for an auto repair shop in Poway, or anywhere else, this is a good question to ask. 

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. These parts are not necessarily the same as the genuine parts that come from the dealer, but they are from the same manufacturer that provided the parts to the assembly line when the vehicle was produced.

Aftermarket parts are not made to the same standards as the factory uses and often are of low quality and do not last as long. There are so many different parts manufacturers these days that it is important to work with an experienced mechanic, like the certified technicians we have at Poway’s Precision Automotive, to make sure they are using quality parts in their auto repair shop.

At Precision Automotive, we use OEM (or better) parts, and offer a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty. This gives our clients piece of mind that their money is well spent, the repairs will last, and the vehicle will be reliable. 

If you are looking for an auto repair shop that is discerning about what parts they are putting on your car, give Poway’s Precision Automotive a call!
