What Are OEM Parts?

Brake Maintenance

Factory certified Mazda parts, otherwise known as OEM parts, are always the best fit for Mazda vehicles. OEM stands for “Original Equipment Manufacturer”—and that means that OEM car parts are the exact same parts that were used in the original construction of your vehicle. If you want your Mazda to continue to run as its makers intended, then you owe it to yourself to choose Mazda OEM parts whenever you schedule service or take care of maintenance tasks at home.

OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts

Regular vehicle inspection and maintenance are crucial to keeping your vehicle on the road. You’ll need to take care of simple things like having your tires rotated or your oil changed. If your Mazda vehicle needs a new part, OEM parts are the smartest option. Regardless of your Mazda needs, we’ve got you covered.

OEM parts can be contrasted with non-OEM, or aftermarket, components. You already know that Mazda OEM parts are the best choice for your vehicle, but you might still have questions about why that is.

There are several important differences between OEM and non-OEM parts:

  • While OEM parts are more expensive, they are built according to higher quality standards. They also come backed by the guaranteed Mazda parts warranty.
  • OEM parts are superior to their cheaper non-OEM counterparts because they fit the vehicle manufacturer’s precise specifications. Aftermarket parts are often designed to fit as many vehicles as possible, which means they may not fit any vehicle perfectly.
  • If you are looking for variety, non-OEM parts may be the better option. Because they are designed by third-party manufacturers, they are much easier to come by—and you’ll have a greater selection of parts to choose from.
  • However, variety can be more trouble than it’s worth. Choosing to stick with OEM parts means that there’s just one component for every job. You’ll never have to compare dozens of options before you make a purchase.

Although OEM car parts will cost you more money initially, they will save you money in the long run. Mazda OEM parts are a smart investment because they help you avoid costly repairs that could have been avoided.
