If you drive a Genesis vehicle in South County and beyond, the best way to keep your car running smoothly is to make sure the parts are all up to date. Whether you need a replacement part or a repair on an existing part, Genesis of South St. Louis County has got your back! We also offer a wide variety of add-on accessories for your vehicle’s interior and exterior, such as carpeted floor mats, mudguards, roadside assistance kits, and USB chargers.

Whatever parts you may be looking for, it’s important that you use OEM parts – original equipment manufacturer – for your vehicle. OEM parts are essential to keep your Genesis running in the best condition possible because they’re tailor-made for your specific make and model, rather than third-party aftermarket parts which are designed to fit as wide a range of vehicles as possible. The service team at Genesis of South St. Louis County has more details on OEM car parts in the guide below – check it out!



Why Use OEM Car Parts?

As the name suggests, OEM parts refer to parts made directly by the manufacturer of your vehicle, which in this case is Genesis. OEM parts tend to be a bit pricier than generic aftermarket parts, but there are a lot of advantages that end up saving you time and money in the long run. Here are four key benefits to using Genesis OEM parts instead of third-party:

  • The perfect fit: Every vehicle is unique, and it’s important that your vehicle’s parts are designed exclusively for it. Genesis engineers have designed our OEM parts so they fit your exact make and model, whereas third-party parts are made without a specific vehicle in mind.
  • Ensures quality: Genesis OEM parts are much higher quality than their aftermarket counterparts. Although aftermarket parts are cheaper, their lower quality can affect your vehicle’s performance and even lead to costly repairs in the long term. OEM parts are also protected by warranty coverage that isn’t available if you use aftermarket parts.
  • Reliable ordering: It can be difficult to negotiate with a third-party seller for aftermarket parts, and they may not have the right part you’re looking for. With Genesis OEM parts, you’re working directly with parts centers of certified Genesis dealers, so you’ll find the process to be easier and stress-free.
  • Longer-lasting: Because of their higher-quality construction, OEM car parts are designed to last much longer on the Oakville roads than aftermarket parts. While they also cost more, since they last long you won’t be replacing them as often, so the cost tends to even out!
